  1. ummmm....I don't see my name up there anywhere! My favorite things are naptime with my daughter and listening to music. Music always seems to inspire me and remind me that life is going to be ok and there are more things that could be going wrong with my life that aren't. I especially love listening to some Veggie Tales with my daughter and we get our groove on rocking out to some singing vegetables!
