I loved reading that Lisa, it was actually quite amazing how similar you and I are. I also have to have a fan on when sleeping, and take baths daily, ...and the list could go on and on. Thanks for sharing that! I've always looked up to you ever since I was little.

We'll have to plan a trip out that way sometime, Matt has never been to New York and I would love to go back!

You are so creative.

Happy New Year

What a great blog! So fun to read. I'm glad you learned some things from parents - like - a real christmas tree is the only tree -- shoveling snow is an art form -- childrens books are cool -- what not to wear -- and, a love for the outdoors.

Thanks Lisa! I learned a lot about you. And I love you - see you next week!
