    Hi Heather,

    You must be proud of your achievements in 11 years of blogging. I simply don’t know how you can keep the words flowing so well, but I know you have made a career out of blogging, and you obviously have done extremely well at it. I can only hope to emulate a small portion of what you have accomplished. Such a long list. Very well done girl.

    Cheers Sharon…
