interview with Angie Mizzell

super sweet

Kristjana, at the the Mommy Blog, just posted the sweetest blog entry about Everyone Is Beautiful.  After writing about how she’s not posting as much since her new baby (look at that handome face!) came last summer, she said this: Fortunately, inspiration comes in unlikely packages.  Though I have begged off the most recent slew […]
