You are a busy and motivated woman. I am particularly impressed with your goal of studying an hour a day, something I don’t think I could commit to. I hope it all goes well.

oh, my! you have quite the list to achieve here! all the best of luck to you in achieving it!

just wanted to stop by with one final p.w. note… that i’m leaving for all the p.w. peeps who kindly stopped by my photos and commented from time to time!

“just wanted to stop and say hello… i’m going through all the profiles of those who commented on my picture winter photos, and looking to see if they have blogs or flickr accounts {and if not, then sending an e-mail}… so that i can A) say thank you for the comments and feedback you gave me, and B) let them know i would love to stay in touch… especially to those who expressed interest in keeping up to date on what is happening with my pregnancy. since i can not remember all who asked, i thought i would just go through each profile and send a message. =)

i’ll be updating my blog periodically with baby news… just in case you are interested:

thanks again for all your comments on p.w.! it was an inspiration to meet you and see your work! i hope to see more of it even though the class is over."

wish you all the best!
