87 Michelle

I think that this idea is like doing charity for the handicapped, hence I would classify it as PHILANTHROPY!!! I honestly wish that i wasn’t as technology unsavvy as I am, but I am. :( And there are very few people like you who are both great cooks and designers AND are tech savvy.

Ok ok, so in one word, this idea is INCREDIBLE. :) THANK YOU for at least giving me a glimmer/sliver of hope!!
