Wow, I've been wanting to start mine - I have - but I can't do it like you - and you have a head start of 1591!

Intimidating.

And your artistic flair - with the traveling chalkboard? Wow.

And your husband sharing - fist bump for the man. That's a husband!

Maybe I'll get Laska the love kitty to do it with me? Strength in numbers.
