    Hi, was nice to get to know you through this ABC thing. Think I'll do it next. I am discovering that most of you on the Amazing Race team were pixies too, I guess that was another team? A competitive team, I bet. You sound like you are doing all the right things, best wishes on your journey!

    Looking forward to learning more about you! Any tips for a garden on a budget? I would love to get our yard looking better, but we are on an extremely tight budget these days.
