  1. Hey! It was so great to chat with you today. Let us know if you guys come down to San Diego; we’d love to get together again. 🙂 And you’re welcome for not “ripping you to shreds” (please!) and thank you for not thinking I’m a moron for not figuring out that it was your blog, even though your name’s all in the title n’ stuff. I’m smoooooth.
