    Emily dear,

    I was wondering if I could have an updated link to you on my blog. I still have the one up you gave me last year, and I am wanting to spruce my blog up a little with some new links and categories.

    I hope that you have a lovely day!

    Great quotes, and I agree with my mom about Sam Adams’s quote.
    I’m glad you liked my Conner Praire post, it is such a great place for a camera-toting girl like myself :-). 8 or 9 years is a long time not to go…you really need to go back!!!
