Not being in the habit of regular blogging, I missed the big Blogger boo-boo this past week. The only impact I saw was double posts showing up on Google Reader.

Reading them is like getting a custom-made magazine just for me, without horrid ads, mind-corrupting ideas, or ugliness on every other page. Instead I see ladies who want to share the things that make their lives happy, beautiful, and peaceful.
Without you, the Internet would be a bleak place!
