Hello from Virginia,
I really like your blog. A few things really "hit home with me"... Your daughters name, Tait,it's darling, I love Reba too but mostly the tv show, B Jean is my fav, I lived in Russellville when I was 5 and grew up to be a Crimson Tide fan (sorry), the way you referred to your daughter having "spend the night company", in VA it's always "sleepover", and your colorful, fun blog, it's so happy. Thanks for sharing your life with perfect strangers. I'm thinking about the Africa stuff and Starlite.

Take care,
LA
