  3. I loved your 100 things. And I will be reading your blog. :-)

  4. I am soooo jealous of your new beautiful blog design!! I love Hibiscus!! and orange!! I love it!!

    I really enjoyed getting to know you better! See which ones we have in common:

    1,24,37,38,42,53,56,66,73,74,75,76,81,88,96,98,99, and 100.

    Have you checked your email lately? What do you think about my ideas? If you didn't get it for some reason let me know!!


  5. Who doesn't love to go on and on about themselves! What a great way to share yourself with others...I feel like we have a lot in common. I also read your posts, and they are very good. I hope more people see your blog, I know they would enjoy it. I'll add it to my fav list, and perhaps it may direct a few your way!

  6. robin, i think you are so lovely. reading this was like reading poetry...

    and i think i like you more because of it, although i never thought that was possible...maybe its the whole "i have to force myself to drink water," and "refer to number 42..."

  7. I stumbled across this blog and throughly enjoyed reading about a complete stranger's life. I found that to be a bit odd. But if you ask my nephews and nieces I am odd.

    I may consider reading future blogs, but it's not my thing. Thanks for the exerpts from you life.

  8. This is completely charming. You go, God's girl!
