Hello Miss Kimberly! I just received my newest catalog from Nike and fell in love with the functionality of their Guru Unitard with the little skirt. (In case you want to check it out, STYLE# 255633) However, I know that you can create a better version with fabulous eco fabric...Oh PULEEEZE consider adding your version to your next line! : ) Hugs, Jennifer

I'm too very passioned about writing and especially journaling. Right now I have a calendar, a visual journal and a diary + my blog of course! I always enjoy your shows so much and you have as many ideas and passions as I have though I haven't gone after them with your energy at all. Wish I could, but I still don't understand how I could. Maybe little by little.

Thanks so much for posting these great podcasts for free, I enjoy every one of them Kimberly!
