    I love that sharing inspiration, fosters inspiration.
    Booyeah to those who encourage people to aspire to greater things.
    A big rasberry to those who put others down or put unrealistic expectations on people ESPECIALLY new mothers!

    without an ounce of constructive thought}}}
    I'm up on my soap box over at my blog.
    This post is an Ode to Kal Barteski
    because both you and Kal inspire me daily.
    Whoot Whoot
    Keep It Up Girlz
    Love and Sunshine coming your way Ali.
    Thank you for your generosity and thoughtfulness. Thank you for sharing the things that inspire you.

    I wanted to give you a belated Congratulations Ali on the beautiful new daughter! I thought it was fit to post on your {inspired by} post that we're currently running a digital-scrapping challenge based on you, and how we were inspired by you over at!
