    I am 25 weeks pregnant and my latest craving is for boiled peanuts. I’d give anything for a drive to the beach right now and bag of fresh boiled peanuts.

    I drank in every word of Gabrielle’s article.
    I had moments of make-believe myself clicking through the various tagged links of goods and things you’ve mentioned here.
    Always grateful for your posts and the moments of joy they often bring.

    Would you please leave the link for contributing to the continuation of your blog. (I did it once, but can’t figure out where I might have that info, or how to do it.) It could go under “individual sponsorship.” I read your blog as often as you post, checking in daily. While your course sounds good, I really can’t add another “project” to what I need to concentrate right now (writing a novel.) So let me send some bits of money your way, as a thank you subscription, instead.
