Happy 200th Post!!

Hip Hip Hooray!! Today marks the 200th post of my blogging days!
I have to tell you, my BBFF's (Blog BFF's) Thank you Thank you for stopping by, leaving your inspiring comments, sharing a few laughs, a few creative moments, a few "what was I thinking?!" moments, putting up with my posts that are usually written holding one and sometimes 2 kiddos...THIS POST IS FOR YOU!


Time to reminisce with some of our favorite blog posts! click on the titles below

Watch Me Grow
Birthday Post
Heaven Sent
a mini for mini me

In honor of this 200th post, it's time for some humungo Giveaways!! Christmas has come early my friends!
First, a Brand New Big Shot from our friends over at Sizzix!!



A Brand New CuttleBug from our friends at Provo Craft!

with their awesome embossing folders!

A Crop-A-Dile Big Bite!!

I just purchased my Crop-A-Dile and I can't believe it took me so long! Until a week ago, I was still raiding Collin's toolbox for a hammer to pound my eyelets! This thing can set an eyelet as easy as punching a hole in paper. No joke, this summer I took Ali's CKU class and the girls at my table were laughing because I had never used one of these before and had no clue how it worked! It's awesome!

Last but not least... $15 iTunes Gift Card! I know a lot of you like the music on my blog (and if you don't, thanks for putting up with it!) now you don't have to be stuck at your computer to hear them!


Just leave a comment with your fave blog memory, post, song or anything you wish & I'll announce the winners later this week!!

Thanks again! Blessings, Ashley

anniekate said...

Congrats on #200!! Your blog is so inspiring and full of beautiful things. I have to tell you that you are my music DJ. I scroll down, listen to your selections, and head to iTunes to make my choices. You introduced me to Jason Mraz's I'm Yours, which I used in my wedding slideshow. Thanks for EVERYTHING!!

Karin said...

Your blog post that stands out in my memory is the one where you talked about die cutting and linked us to a sneak peek of your CK article about it. I thought you had some really clever ideas! Super fun!

Thanks and happy blogversary!

Elizabeth,

I enjoy the blogs about your family. I miss it when you don't blog every day. You have such a sweet little family. I enjoy reading about your happiness. And I absolutely LOVE your playlist. I listen to it all the time. At work I click on your blog first thing in the morning and enjoy your music all day long. And it is the BEST scrapbooking music. It just makes me feel all happy and inspired inside. Never take it away.

Take care

I think all of your posts are great. I think the humor in it all is what's so fantastic. Yes, the scrapbooker's fantasty was hilarious. So right now, that's my fav but really I like them all.

hiscrappergirl said...

I am a relatively new visitor to your blog - and I love it. The music is great - I have saved your playlist to my favorites, usually by now I am already listening to Christmas music, but I can't get enough of your playlist yet :)

I love the pics of your family, my daughter is about Quincey's age so it is so fun to hear how you all are doing and I feel like I can relate.

And then best of all are the great projects - they are stunning and I aspire to accomplish some of the scraplifts I have earmarked - if only there were a few more hours in the day.

Thanks for doing your blog it is a spot of inspiration, comraderie, and beauty in my day!! Congrats on your 200th post!!

Wendy said...

Congratulations!! I love everything but by far my favorite was the scrapbookers' fantasy. I laughed so hard and forwarded it to all my scrapbooking friends!

Rachael said...

Besides your blog being happy and bright to read, your music selection is fantastic! I have very similar tastes to you, and love discovering new fun songs to add to my tunes. My favorite artist you have on your playlist is Ingrid Michaelson... she's great! Thanks for having such a positive, fun blog!

Kelly Goree said...

HOLY HANNAH, Liz!! THat's some giveaway! (and I am listening to your music now as I do almost everyday ;) cause I loveeee it but uh, my pocket book doesn't cause most of those have found their way to my iPod! lol:)

I just love everything about your blog and come here daily for some inspiration. My favorite blog would have to be the one recently that you left a quote about creativity and compassion. I printed that out and posted it at work. I read it daily!! Thank you for always allowing me to have an inspiring break from work.
Amber Cantrell

Whitney said...

Ooo.. just picking one is hard to do, but my favorite blog post is the one where you mentioned how grateful you were for the health of Quincy, "Heaven Sent". You probably don't remember but I sent you an e-mail about it because it helped reaffirm my faith that Heavenly Father will always take care of us, even in our trials.
Congrats on the 200th posting Liz!

You're my #1 go to blog for inspiration!(can you PLEASE write a book?!)

panamomma said...

I like your music. I found a few new artists from your picks. I also like the posts on what you have done with fabric. As a fabric junkie it is nice to see what you do with it.

Theresa said...

Scrapbooker's Fantasy has to be my favorite since I started reading your blog about 6 months ago. It was the MOST hilarious thing . . .

What great giveaways!! I tried to look through my iTunes to remember which one of the many songs I have downloaded because of your blog(too many to say, just in case my husband finds out) was my favorite. I can't think of one. So my favorite song is all of them! Thanks for sharing everything with us blog folks!

Hi Elizabeth,
First of all, I love everything about your blog, the posts, music, pictures, etc. The posts I loved most were the birthday ones. They were so loving and humorous at the same time, you can tell you two have an endless love for each other. It sure makes you value your own love all the more and be thankful for the little things someone does. Not only do you have a wonderful marriage, you have two wonderful daughters as well and I enjoy watching them grow up on your blog. As for the music, I love Jaymay, your blog introduced her to me. Thanks!!!
Have a wonderful week.

The Moerkes said...

I loved the birthday posts. These are great prizes. Love your blog.

jill marie barrett said...

Thanks for posting!

Ingunn said...

Happy bicentennial (or something to that effect)!

I must admit I love Collin's cameos...and I wish there was a video clip of Cletus! But my all time favorite was the birthday post. It gave me all sorts of good feelings that love is all around us and all that.

Zoo2 said...

200 - Holy Smokes!! Since reading your blog I've become a Katie Herzig fan. Love hearing her songs when I stop by. Love the blog, the CK articles... keep it coming. Thanks!!!

The sweet pictures and stories about little Avery and Quincey always make me smile. What beautiful babies you have!

Liz, Your posts are always fun but I liked the one where you were making the quilt before Q was born. Did you ever show us how that turned out, by the way? Those colors were fabulous!

Awesome!! I really like the song "modern nature" and actually downloaded it to my itunes!

Kristi K said...

I can't pick just one thing but what got me hooked was all the inspiration bundled into one blog. All of the creative projects you come up with get my creative juices flowing and inspire me to try projects I normally wouldn't (even if it looks just even a portion as good as yours); the amazing photography gets me using my camera more and more; the adorable outfits, hair and makeup make me want to go the extra mile to make myself feel good about myself when trying to get the kids up, dressed, fed and out the door each morning; and last but not least the amazing family life you share that is so similiar to my own that makes me smile and cherish. Thanks so much for inspiring me on soooo many different levels.

junebug said...

I thought that Scrapbooker's Fantasy was hilarious. It's so sweet for Collin to do a post for you like that. I also love all the little things you make for the girls (like the headband for Q).

But truthfully, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your playlist. You got me hooked into Priscilla Ahn and Ingrid Michaelson. I like to keep coming back to "discover" more music.

Congratulations on 200!

The Hathaways said...

I just started following your blog and I love it! I accidently found it by trying to look for directions on making nylon headbands for babies. I'm so glad I found it!

kiki comin said...

by far the scrapbookers fantasy. so funny..and i had just read the other book in a store, so it made it even better!

Holy cow, when you said "humungo" giveaways, you really meant it!!! Don't feel bad about the Crop-a-dile...up until a few months ago I hadn't used one before either!!

I love your blog :) And I have to say that your Scrapbooker's Fantasy cracked me up once again! I was sure to show my hubby that one!!!

A close second would be the little mini albums you've shared. Mini albums are always my favorite :)

Sugar & Spice said...

My favorite blogs are the ones left on birthdays- a sweet thought about the other for how ever many years they are turning. A great tradition and one my husband and I have started as well.

Kara Denise... said...

I loved Meet Cleetus... Cleetus Mcduffey. Hilarious. Something my husband would do too.

Pattie said...

Scrapbooker's Fantasy had to be my favorite, and Collin was such a great sport to go along with it! You always have such great pics on your blog, too!

Kay said...

All of Collin's random stuff, and your cute girls, but I especially love that you introduced me to Bubbly by Colbie Caillat. Can't get enough of that. My new happy song! Congrats on 200! You are so inspiring! Please, do more on fashion! You rock!

Liana said...

it DEFINITELY has to be scrapbooker's fantasy! I read it and I remembered my reaction to reading the original book when I happened across it. I still can't believe that C posed so willingly for those photos!

Lanadannysmama said...

Hello. Congratulations on your 200Th post! I love reading your blog it is always filled with beautiful projects and beautiful pic's of your family. I would have to say my favorite blog was titled "Lesson # 458". The one where little Avery is in your scrap room climbing on your desk with a button stuck to her little leg.It was a really cute pic and moment you captured. My 2 little ones are always fascinated by my stuff too and have to "touch". =)Thanks for the opportunity to win awesome stuff. ~Monica

Karen~ said...

Yes, it's looks like an early Christmas with these wonderful giveaways!!!

Your kids are beautiful so any post with their pics are great! But I do have to say I think your husband is pretty funny/entertaining...sometimes the expressions he gets on his face. You guys look very happy so it's really refreshing to get a glimpse of your life! Thanks for sharing with us.

Karen~

Heather said...

Your remake of "P*&% for Women" cracked me up, I am so impressed that your hubby played along! And I LOVE your playlist, all of it. Thanks for the inspiration and congrats on your blogging milestone.

Please excuse my bad english...

Anonymous said...

Hi Liz,
My favorite blog memory is when you decided to paint your office another color. You could'nt wait to jump right in and start painting. Then you showed pics of Collin finishing it for you. I thought that was such a cool thing that he did for you. My husband had a craft room built for me out of some wasted attic space right off of our bedroom closet. He knew how happy it would make me to have a room of my own to create in instead of the tiny corner of our walk-in closet. It's been over 2 years and I still thank him for it almost every single day because I enjoy MY room so much and feel so lucky. It's those sweet, thoughtful things our husbands do for us, amongst many other things, that should make us wives feel truly blessed. Thanks!

I just found your blog and since it is the first post I have read and it has giveaways, then this is definitely my FAVORITE post!

Brooke Groelle said...

I love the Cleetus one... I would LOVE any of those cool tools... pick me!!!!!

Brooke said...

Wowee! Quite the giveaways! This probably makes me the biggest nerd ever. . . but I love your clothes wish lists, or even seeing your outfits and accessories, because fashion and I don't always mix, so I love finding out what's "in style" :)

Jane and Kate said...

Hi there...I love looking at your blog...you are so creative. One of my favorite posts is "Have you ever..." with the crayons in the laundry and the cookie dough. It reminds me that we moms of young kids all go through the same things...we're in this together! By the way...we buy tubs of cookie dough and never even make cookies...we just eat it...one of my girls' favorite snacks...I figure you can get sick from a shopping carts...who cares if they eat a little raw egg :-) Have a great day!

I would like to thank you for putting New Soul on your songs. I love that from the mac ads on tv and I could not find it until I went to you blog! Thanks

ok this http://elizabethkartchner.blogspot.com/2007/10/happy-halloween.html
has to be one of my favorite posts... Avery's face in the first photo is classic... can you just see that same face re surfacing when she is a teenager, because all teenagers think their parents are crazy? too funny!

Congrats on the big 200!

Heidi G said...

I love your post and have it up most of the day at work just to hear the music. So light and refreshing!!! How can you expect us to choose one of our favorite posts? Too many favorites. But, I guess since you are holding blog candy over our heads, I would have to choose the one where Colin posted for your birthday--about your pregolicious bod. Sounds like you guys have such a sweet relationship. That's hard to maintian with 2 little ones underfoot. Thanks for sharing your creativity, love and joys of every day with your family.

My favorite was the scrapbooker's fantasy. Absolutely hysterical and what a funny husband you have there to participate and then allow you to post the results! I would LOVE any of the products - they are great giveaways!

AmyE said...

Your blog always makes me happy - it's so cheerful and I love the happy music. I have three little girls too, and you remind me of all the little things I can appreciate about them and my family. Thanks for taking the time to do so!

Gioconda said...

Two favorites:
1. The slideshow of you being named SOY. I cried listening to the song.

2. I have your blog open when I am on the computer so I can listen to your tunes. I bought Colbie Caillat's album because I heard it hear. Now it's my dd's favorite.

Congrats! And thanks for sharing the love.

Aimee Confer said...

I love the colors and music on your blog...so inspirational and contagious. It makes me want to create!

Christine said...

The very first time I checked out your blog after seeing the link in CK, the song New Soul was playing. I must live under a rock 'cause I'd never heard it before. My kids and I danced to that song several times in our family room that afternoon. I was so inspired by your blog that I ultimately ended up starting my own! And it's been a fantastic journey.

justynapalasiewicz said...

I always love the music you put on your blog--it's impossible to pick a favorite! I often find myself going to your blog (even when I know there's no new post) just to sit back and chill out to your tunes. Thanks for the melodic inspiration!!!!

uptowncat said...

I am not sure I can pick a favorite. I have a few favorite scrapping/crafting blogs and yours is one of them. I love your pages and your stories.:)

Well done! I'm loving them all. The birthday one is pretty cool!

Christa said...

Your blog is so colorful and bright and cheery that its hard to pick a favorite.

Diana said...

Happy 200th! my favorite post was when your hubby posted on your birthday. Thanks for sharing your life with us! :)

Jenny Mick said...

I found your blog from a link on someone else's blog (can't remember who) and it was about the scrapbooker's fantasy and I was rolling on the floor laughing so I'll have to pick that one as my favorite. Been reading your blog ever since then! It's awesome!!

Definately Scrapbookers Fantasy. Sooo funny! I love that your hunny would do that for you. It must be love!

Linh Chin-Lai said...

I think the Scrapbooker's Fantasy pictures are HILARIOUS! And bravo to your husband for participating! What a hoot. Congrats on the 200th post. :)

i have to say you introducing me to Sandi Henderson just added to my love for all patterns, textures, and stuff. Thanks for the inspiration. I think you made every one of us dream and really believe that we to could be scrapbooker of the year someday too. Your the best.

Susan said...

it's been such a joy to read your blog ever since you became CK's SOY. you've never failed to make me smile, to inspire me, to uplift me. thanks!

Jasey said...

Also... some advice... NEVER put your address on this blog. I know I am not the only one who would show up at your house like a total groupie!

Liz said...

Congrats on 200 posts! Love your blog so much. Have to say I love your music and have downloaded many songs I have heard here on your bolg. Also any post with scrappy projects... so inspiring!
Thanks!

So hard to pick a favourite post...
I loved the one when you won Scrapbooker of the Year, I loved the photo shoot for the magazine, love anytime you do anything creative (esp. the 'mini me album'!). It's all good, good, good - so, so good!
Thanks for inspiring us, teaching us and making us smile!

Amy said...

So happy for you, your family, and the wonderful year you have had! You are such an inspiration to so many... from your crafts, to your music, to the love you and your family share! So thank you for sharing your blog! I have to say that it is so hard to pick a favorite but I remember after Q was born and you had that beautiful post with the music "Sweet Baby" playing in the background... it brought a few tears to my eyes! How precious...

Keepin' up with the Jones' said...

i'm a fan of the birthday post from collin. I think it's so great when the husband steps into the blogging role and gives a tribute to the wife. Plus, it doesn't hurt that he's also really funny and makes it entertaining!

Missie said...

I can't say I have a favorite, but I must say I love your photography skills (as well as scrapbooking skills). Very insperational. Thanks for being so talanted!

ConnieC said...

I crack up every time I see Collin looking for that eyelet. He's such a good sport.

Suzanne said...

Congrats on being a successfull 200post blogger! I love all your posts, which is why I keep track of your blog.

Wendy Sue said...

I always enjoy your posts...but one that stands out in my mind is when you showed us your scrapbook area - so fun and colorful! :o)

gamybel said...

I love the blogs about trying to scrap, blog, eat, dress, really anything with your kiddos! I so relate to trying to balance life with two babies on you lap!

Laura Looooo said...

i loved Collin's post about all of the things he loved about you for your birthday. and vice versa!!!

anddddd....

did u ever find out how to use Blurb for blogger?

s0ccer Family said...

Your birth of Q, reminds me of how fast they grow up

Gayle said...

I've only been reading your blog for a few weeks, but my favorite thing about it is how you mix scrapbooking with real life and how much your family is apart of your blog! I have defiantly noted many cool ideas from your posts! Thank you for providing entertainment via the internet!

Elise said...

Well, Collin's posts always make me laugh, but the post he made about how easy you made giving birth seem (with Q) made me cry in that wonderful way. And, another fav: the post with your family beach vacation photos--the one that you had that nifty photog do with you in that vibrant dress. I went to the extra photos and drooled... they were great!
I also really appreciate the music, the version of I'm Yours is way better than the version djs (finally) got around to playing. My confession: sometimes after I've read the blog post for the day, I minimize and keep the music on while I edit photos or visit other sites!

I absolutely love reading your blog, so fun, informative, just plain enjoyable to read!
One thing I really love is that you introduced me to playlist! Never knew you could do that!
Loved your hubby's halloween costume!

Oh my! My new favorite is Cozumel Karaoke!!! I've been reading your blog for a while but somehow I missed this one! Thanks for the laughs and sharing so much of your life with us lucky blog-readers! My day is always brighter after reading your blog! Lisa H.

Jonel G. said...

congrats girl on the 200th post. My fav. has to be Collin's for your birthday! I have to agree you're even more beautiful preggers. Collin reminds me so much of my husband in that he's all too often too good to be true kind of way. KWIM? Isn't it great to be totally crazy for someone who is just as crazy for you. I also love the songs on your blog. Congrats once again.

Bonnie said...

Congratulations Elizabeth! My fave post was Scrapbooker's Fantasy - that was hysterical! Love your blog. You have a beautiful family!

Sonja said...

I just love your inspiration and color that you use! By the way I totally got addicted to Lenka from reading your blog! The song "Don't Let Me Fall" totally ROCKS!

Erika said...

Your blog is on my list of daily reads. I love it! Your pages and projects are so inspiring. My favorite posts...probably the one Collin wrote for your birthday and the one when A spilled all of your buttons. My daughter did that, but not with buttons, with glitter. Nice to know other moms go through the same things! :-)
Thanks for the chance to win such wonderful prizes!!! Keep up the great work!

Cole said...

The scrapbooker's fantasy post is my favourite, but it has some pretty stiff competition! You and your entire sweet family are so wonderful! Congrats on the 200th post and here's to 2000 more!

P.S. We all love the music and keep discovering new fav artists thanks to you!

Laura said...

My most favorite fairly recent post was the entry "she's Here!" Quincy is such a beautiful little baby.

Laura said...

Congrats on your 200th!
My favourite entry was baby Q's announcement. A new baby is always a blessing and I thank you for sharing her (and her big sister) with us on your blog so we can watch them grow.

I really loved your idea abut the traveling yellow sunglasses. Even though i wasn't able to get in on the fun i remember thinking how fun is SHE?!!!!! Congrats on the big 200th!

Kacey Elliott said...

My favorite post is a toss up, so I'll choose BOTH - the Scrapbooker's Fantasy shots were a hoot (had me laughing out loud!) and I LOVED what Collin wrote for your birthday (brought tears - I thought guys like that only existed in movies, hmmm...) :-) I love checking in on your blog simply because you guys are so much fun, and I love your creations too of course!

diana graham said...

Melissa said...

Congrats! How exciting! I really enjoy the posts where you share some of the creative projects you've been working on. They really inspire me!

Bridget =) said...

congrats on your "blog-aversary!"

I HOWLED with the "scrapbooker's fantasty" featuring your DH! OMG! He is SUCh a good sport, and that totally made my day! I had to read it several times! =)

The Palmquists said...

I love your little helper - I think it was "start'n um young" or something. My daughter loves to "design" with my scraps and takes it very serious! Love it!

Heather said...

I had a hard time just picking one so i'll tell you my favorite two. The first was the post that Collin wrote announcing the birth of Quincey and the second was the scrapbooker's fantacy Post. Congrats on your 200th Post.

jkhenson said...

Your smile, your family and that Scrapbooker's Fantasy had me cracking up! :) Thanks for all the posts! :)

Tricia Wilson said...

One of my faves is when Colin posted a list of things he loved about you for your birthday. I love that he hi-jacked you blog and was super sweet with his list.

Kris said...

I love your blog...my favorite songs Butterfly Nets and Love.

I really love your photos, scrapbooking and fabric albums you have made.

Love reading it!

smdoss said...

Well, the grocery totes that you sewed the recycle symbol on inspired me to sew a few on my grocery totes and I did the project with my 9 year old daughter - we hand stitched the symbols on and I don't know if they will last, but she will forever remember the time we spent doing it. I love all your ideas and pics! I get a lot of inspiration from you. And as far as your music is concerned I love it. When I am cleaning I just go to your blog and get movin'!

N Thom said...

I love the posts that you and Collin do for each other. It's always so refreshing to see two people so extremely happy together. And of course I super love your music!

vittory said...

Thank you for being you! I am quite new in the world of scrapbooking but since I found your blog you just keep inspiring me. I love all your posts and it's so hard to pick one or two. But most of all I LOVE to read about your daughters.

My congratulations from Estonia!!! Now you know that you have fan even here, in small Estonia. =))

Heidi said...

I have been "stalking" your blog ever since I happened upon it one day doing a search for fabric-related projects. :)

You, your sweet little girls, your adorable family and all of your creativity have been inspiring me for at least a year! The music is great, too.

Thanks for the great ideas!

Lori P. said...

I Love all your blog entries but since I'm a stalker I loved when Colin left the post about you when you were out of town this past year. Soooo sweet! Love your music, have loaded most on to my Itunes! You are the Best CK Scrapbooker of the Year! If you hadn't won I might not have ever found you! xoxo, :)
p.s. Still hoping I receive the yellow glasses! :)

Mique (as in Mickey) said...

Happy 200 to you.
I too have lurked for awhile now but had to comment on this post.
I have loved all your posts- but I love the mini me album. You made me want to run out and get myself a bind it all the second I read it (still haven't though. it's on my christmas list :).
I hope I win!! Thanks.

Joan said...

My favorite was the one you have on screen now with your hubby saying not to get down to look for an eyelet. I had broken my leg and am always asking my DH to get on the floor in my craft room to find some little this or that. He does it all the time. I laughed and still laugh when I see that post.

Jen said...

Congrats! You have a lot of fans...including me. I think your husband's scrapbookers's fantasy book is my favorite. What a sport!

Also love your playlists. I think I first heard Jason Mraz "I'm Yours" on your blog. It's a favorite right now. Thanks!

~Q~ said...

Congrats on your blog count! Here's to many more! My fave blog post would probably have to be the fabric album you made during the summer. I loved it as it inspired me to get out and look for some neat fabric to do something similar.

Anna Kristina said...

Wow, 200! Congratulations! I started reading your blog after getting a link to it from my CK e-mailing... and I fell in love after reading your wonderful hubby's birthday post for you. It reminded me of the sweet and silly things my husband does for me, and I was hooked! After reading this post though, the scrapbooker's fantasy definitely rocketed up the list! And you have fantastic music... where do you find this all! :)

Nikki said...

loved scrapbookers fantasy!

Salsa Mama said...

OK, that scrapbooker's fantasy is just too funny! I love how your hubby gets into the fun with you. You guys look like such a cute family having a blast together!

Mrs. Morty said...

Wow, 200!! Way to go! I LOVE the scrapbooker's fantasy post. It had me rolling!!

Jim & Erin Joseph said...

Hey Liz!
I love the post Collin did for your birthday, but I love that you did one for him too. The Cleetus one was great too, probly cause I can see my husband doing the same thing! Congrats on your 200th post. I'll be here for the next 200!

Jingle said...

I really love the special occasions posts that you do. Your love for your family shines so much through those! Like when you list why you love your husband or your children! I just love it!

Steph said...

Ok - I have two faves that come to mind right away. One is your birthday post where your husband posted 27 things he loves about you. So sweet! And I loved the post with your daughter on your scrapbook table/desk where you talk about "starting them young" - I love that one so much because my daughter is 5 now and has been joining me in my craft room since "forever"! Oh and I love that you love the Office because I do too!

Nicole P said...

I hardly ever comment, but I read every single one of your posts. It would be hard for me to pick a favorite. Probably the scrapbooker's fantasy or the post that Colin did for your birthday. It was very sweet.
Mostly I just like looking at your photos though. You all are gorgeous.

Lisa Lew said...

My fave would have to be the one with your cute little Q in a beautiful white digital frame. You on-the-spot got me interested in digital scrapbooking. Since that post I've purchased a PhotoShop How-to-Book and another digital scrapbooking magazine that you recomended. You changed my little scrapbooking world by making me want to reach outside my norm. Thank you.
Lisa
