A big thank you to Cheryl over at Mommypants for letting me know it wasn't possible to leave comments on my blog. After doing some detective work, I realized that I had a glitch with the html code on my new blog template, and my comment widget was not working properly. (Oh the things you have to know to blog these days!) My husband has fixed it and so everything is now in perfect working order.
Thanks to everyone who has read my posts lately-you are wonderful!
