Spreading The March Love & A New Blind Pig Feature

  Spread the Love March 

I'm sending a great big THANK YOU out to all the acorns who commented in the month of March. You've journeyed with me as I recovered from the flu, planted part of my garden, celebrated the release of Paul's cd and my Carolina Crafting Episode, bemoaned the unemployment rate in my county, went to Kentucky to see the girls clog, and choked out the Whippoorwills. You've left insightful, encouraging, and thoughtful comments all along the way!
