Sorry to leave this in comments, but I wasn't sure how to find you otherwise! I highlighted you on my blog today and wanted you to know that you are one of my favorites! My goal is to start commenting more. :) Happy Friday! http://cornandcottongenealogy.blogspot.com/2011/12/friday-follow-eye-candy.html
