Regardless of your views, please make it a point to exercise your right to VOTE. We are all responsible for our individual futures, and electing our leaders is one of those responsibilities. For those of us in Florida, every vote counts!

Early voting!

After an exciting 2 hrs in line at my local library, I exercised my right to vote for the next President of the United States of America.... Barack Obama. Our country needs a change and I believe he is THAT change.

My apologies

I apologize for not posting over the weekend but after a jam-packed weekend at my new job...I am relaxing and will promise to be more diligent in my blog-keeping. Thank you for your patience!

Mini Album: Busted thief

When my sister emailed me this photo of her impish chinese pug, Yoshi, stealing my mom's cell phone I knew I had to create a unique page.
