Here are just a few things out of many that I’m incredibly thankful for that I thought I would share with you all.

  • Friends & Family who support my dreams and goals; who push me when I want to give up; who love me even when I do.
  • A boyfriend who understands me in ways even I don’t understand myself; who keeps me from going crazy by doing all of the back-end work for Temptalia; who loves me as flawed as I am.
  • Readers who give me reasons upon reasons to keep blogging.  This blog could not exist without such a dedicated and enthusiastic reader base!  Your participation and support are vital to our success.
  • Blogging because it gives me a creative outlet and keeps me writing everyday.
  • Mellan for all of his crazy antics and puppy behavior–he keeps me young and teaches me not to be so serious.
  • Beauty brands for their support in helping provide Temptalia readers with the latest products and news, not to mention their product donations for contests and giveaways!

Thank you! Happy Thanksgiving!

Anyone else tried Pin Point? Thoughts?
