  1. Gina, your new do is adorable. It suits you! How exciting about the
    new clothes. I'm looking forward to
    that in about 6 months when I drop
    some of this weight. I don't know
    how you did it so successfully, but
    whatever it was it worked! You must be so proud. Congratulations on your
    What's a liebster award? I've never heard of it.
    I'm so happy that I got to know you this year. Here's to another year of blogging and chatting.
