    hey christine!
    i love your site! it has really shown me that you can go outside your comfort zone and try some new things and not be scared of it. you have inspired me to do things that i would never have thought they would go together.
    four years ago i would have said that i don’t like wearing makeup and i never did but my cousins got me into it and i love it! i did my sister-in-law’s wedding and she absolutely loved it, she wanted me to do it over again because she loved it so much. lol.
    so thank you for your commitment to your fans and your site. i always come here to see what’s new.
