denver craigslist....pretty awesome.

 hey!!

thanks for voting for me yesterday...i am in the lead.

which feels good.

like a glass of wine and a muscle relaxer.

not that i know what that feels like.

but i imagine it feels like winning.

 

don't forget you can vote every 24 hours.

if you felt like making sure i get a million votes which would take me from top design blogging mom to queen khalessi of design blogs.

 

anyway...thanks.

and i concur.

that's all i want more than anything.

it's getting there.

i still have so many emails to return and i want to reiterate that if you haven't heard from me yet, i am working my way down a long list of amazing people.

slowly but surely.

i will never let you forget how grateful we are for your kindness and generosity.

this weekend is a long one- fiona off from school friday and monday.

so correspondence will be slow.

 

anyway..

i wanted to deliver this craigslist post that i intended for friday.

while it would make sense to do it this coming friday i am afraid that if i wait then the items i found will be gone.

and that would suck ding dongs.

plus, well....i just want life to be business as usual.
