    1. Diana! How happy I am to wake up to a comment from you — I am thrilled to hear that you want to come visit so we can work together! I miss your guts, also – The Liebster Award!? How awesome, I am flatered. Thank you! I love keeping up with your blog too, I was totally not surprised your graphic designer / DIY-ness turned into such.
