What a wonderful New Year's blessing, Melissa. I know you will do well with your far-off teaching experience and they will be blessed to have you as their teacher. We should all be so lucky. As for the website, please don't change it up too much. I look forward to it every day. Hoping your New Year is as grand as you wish it to be.


Excited to see the changes coming.. I don't know blog designers, so I am no help. LOVE this card, and I am definitely excited to get started with love themed projects as well!!

Salve ego sum adeo concitati inveni vestri blog page, EGO vere vos invenimus per accidens, dum ego quaerente on Yahoo propter aliud, Anyways hic sum nunc et esset iustus amo dicere tibi gratias ago pro phantasticam stipes et omnia circa enjoyable Vestibulum (credo ego dilexi / vultis), non per totum tempus praesens legis libri signati, mihi quoque id ultricies nulla addita tua et tempus quo legat revertar plura prosequar Suspendisse id velit elit.


I think you will really enjoy the switch to blogger. I've been using it for years for free. :) Although, since I upload *lots* of pictures, I will have to start paying something like $2.97 a month eventually...but I think that is still cheaper than typepad's basic monthly fee anyways, right? And I expect I won't have to pay it for awhile yet so that's good, right? :) Plus, there are tons of designers out there that will let you try out free backgrounds like Cutest Blog on the Block and Itkupilli and Shabby Blogs Blog and more. And its super easy to make your own banner and blinkies and things. I think you can design and upload your side area stuff(where yours is pink right now? I can't think of the name of that area! It's too early...), too, but I've found stuff I love from the free backgrounds so that I haven't bothered with the trouble or expense of going any more custom. Anyways, just my 2 cents. I've been loving your stuff but not commenting so while I'm here I'll just let ya know that, too. ;)

Primum omnium volo dicere terrificoque blog! Quaeritur, utrum facile me, si non libet commemorare. Eram interested ut invenirent quomodo vos centrum teipsum, et purgare cogitationes vestras prior litteris tradidit. Questus sum in animo meo cum animo sese Difficile est. Ego vero fruuntur scribens tamen iustus videor, sicut prima, X ad XV minutes plerumque dissipasset iustus trying ut instar sicco quomodo incipere. Ullus ideas sive primoribus? Gratias ago vos!
