Super Chunky mini that I cherish so much!!
I can't tell you how great it feels to use photos I have been saving for the last two years, because there wasn't room in the family album, and by room I mean I didn't feel comfortable putting lots of pics of me in our weekly spreads. A real sincere thank you to the girls who put this together because you have changed my thinking! We deserve to be recorded too! We are worth the time it takes and our posterity will know something about us too!!
Thank you 
Thank you Thank you!!
