After a cross-country move, I salute you for your fortitude, Heather! Surprised to see your Follow Friday post up today! Looks like a lot of great suggestions, as always.

Thank you, Jacqi! I must admit the trip across the country was fun! And another secret...we don't move in to our house for another three weeks. I have nothing but time on my hands until then!
