I saw this for the first time on my friend Kym's blog and thought it would be a fun ICLW intro. If you are here but have no clue what ICLW is, check out that little dark purple rectangular button with the cute dog on it. It will take you to all the explanation you need. Go on. I'll wait right here for you.
If you want an overview of my family building/IF history, check out my ICLW intro from back in January. And, if you want to win a prize, check out last weekend's Show and Tell.
