Hi! I stumbled upon your blog kind of by accident, and was surprised to see how much we have in common. For instance, my husband is also my favorite person; I'm gonna be a Grandma for the first time soon and I can't wait; I have gone to Disney World many times, and would like to go to Disney Land; used to go camping a lot... can't remember what all, but it was fun to get to know you all in one post!
