Thank goodness for an easy blog topic this week! LOL I was just getting ready to shut the computer down when I thought, “Oh shizmonkeys! I haven’t done my blog yet!” 🙂 So yeah, this week we’re sharing favorite quotes. I LOVE quotes! I’m always collecting them.
Here’s a bunch I had saved on my iPad.
