  4. Danielle, I was just going through all of the wonderful blogs involved in this generous giveaway and I got to your Instagram page and it hit me that I know you! I can't believe I haven't discovered your blog until now! I used to go to Temple before my husband and I decided to travel all over the states for his OR job. I knew Erin when we were all in about 7th grade I think, so we may have only met once or twice, but I'm so happy I found your blog! Hope you're having a happy Valentine's Day!
