I love fun comments, too! :)

    1. Thank you so much! You are so sweet! I have never counted to 1,000 either. If you click on your Blogger Dashboard, it tells you how many Google followers you have. No need to count! Thank goodness! :) Also, you can see the number of followers you have on your followers widget directly on your blog home page.

      Blessings,
