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.

 

we are at colorado in the 'craigslist alphabetically' series..

i chose denver bc it's the capital.

and i chose wisely..
