  1. Wow! Thank you for the mention! I’ve always tried to give my own voice to everything and be Honest (hence the blog name) about my feelings and experiences, in hopes, that people relate or can use some of my experiences to help them.

  2. Wanted to do a quick pop-over to say thanks so much for featuring my article before Tink and I wend our way to bed after attending a wonderful birthday party. I only had 2 drinks over 4 hours, but I can barely hold my eyes open at 10 minutes to 3 AM. I shall have to return tomorrow to click the other links and see who else you featured.

    I TRULY appreciate your help spreading the word.
