  14. Hi Kathryn! Thanks so much for the feature! =) I'm going to thank and link to you on Facebook as well.
    Also, I just read your "about me" and your daughter is one of the cutest things I ever seen! So adorable. =) So glad you were finally blessed with a sweet little one. I'm a new-ish mom, and started kids later than all my friends, so I feel like I'm slightly somewhat of an older mom too. It's always fun to meet new moms!
    Take care!
