You are so amazing Erin! I sure miss talking with you! It was great to see you and Isaac the other day!

Wow, this makes you seem like you have everything in your life together and organized! (Which sounds like you!) Isaac is cute and getting big. I love the office quotes. I can never get enough of those. Especially since I am having withdrawals for new episodes.... :(
