...and My BIG Month Continues!!!

September started right HERE! It turns out, September continues to be a BIG month for me.  For a few reasons: My blog, even though I had to change the name (remember when I had to do that here ) had an anniversary this weekend and I'm now in my 6th year!  6 years!  I'm pretty sure that calls for cheesecake.
