    Where in Los Angeles do you live? I live in Westchester (the home of LAX). I was a bit overwhelmed at the beginning of the round and never made it to any ABC's but kept seeing CA on your signature line.

    I'm not new the blc, but I'm new to the Tigers!

I just quit my job and tried for a few years to start a family. Finally got pregnant and had my daughter 9.5 months ago and am back and ready to lose the baby weight! Good luck in the challenge and your path to familyhood!
