Thank you to my fellow bloggers for showing me love. I was having a hard week and needed the distraction.


  1. I like your 9 ways... I need to take notes.

    I would love to take salsa.

  2. I never had a person I consider my best friend either. I do have good friends.

    And I don't know your age but age is what sexually freed me.
    I say how I want and when without hesitation.

  3. I love salsa dancing! Haven't done it in awhile, but my hips are moving even as I type!

    I feel you on your grandmother. Mine died in 2002, and I miss that woman daily, especially this time of year or when my son does something funny (which is daily).

  4. You know I LOVE Lists!

    Wishing you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Looking forward to reading you in the new year!

  5. happy new year!

    thinking of you!
