Clearly I've been neglectful in my blogging and my viewing of other blogs. You've been quite the busy beaver--lots of fantastic photos, deliciously inspiring recipes etc. You are the bomb!

Well welcome back! :-) Suppsoe I COULD have dropped you a note that I had tagged you. Had planned on it, but the procrastinator in me put it off until I forgot :-( Thanks for the nice feedback! x
