  1. I’ve been trying to do this, particularly with Word Press’s new format. It is helpful, but I still feel like and igmo when it comes to computer issues.

      Pam you are not an IGMO! We are all learning, and must approach this stuff with an attitude of “I can do this stuff”. If I tried to teach someone how to plan a wedding like you do, so often, Ha! I would need to sit at your feet for more than a season.
      Thanks for your comment.

  2. I love the new look and layout of 2.7 wordpress upgrade. It just gets better and better. Your blog tips are appreciated.
