Cans for Comments!

UPDATE (12/22/08): Between 12/5/08 and 12/20/08, including comments left here, on my personal blog, on Flickr, and on my posts at Photo LoveCat, I got 94 comments! I’m rounding it up to an even 100 cans to donate – going to the store tomorrow!

Anyone with a blog can tell you that the most wonderful thing in the world is to get a comment on a blog post. Now I want to share that wonderful feeling with others!

For every comment left on this blog (not just this post, but the whole blog) between now and December 20, 2008, I’ll purchase and donate a canned good to the Houston Food Bank!

I have to give Chris + Lynn credit for the inspiration (oh my, are they ever inspiring!), and Scott of Think Photographics credit for pointing it out. When I heard about it, I had to jump on the canwagon!* (Totally Scott’s words there with the canwagon. It cracked me up though so I had to use it.) Lots of others are participating too!

On the Canwagon:
Kristel Wyman, Lori Miles, Blue Olive, The Bebbs, CJ Scott, Erin Gilmore, Amber Hughes, Jamie Delaine, Tracey Heppner, Michael Wachniak, Melissa Zihlman, John Heil, Susan, Ami J. Davenport, Jerk with a Camera, Anne Ruthmann, and Kristy, the Custom Invitation Lady.

Want to join in on the fun? Let me know, so I can be sure to post your link too! You give it to us … and we give it back! Cans for Comments! Yeah!

No blog post is complete without photos, so here are a few for Flashback Friday! Some of my favorites from Sarah & Marc’s wedding back in May at the Hideout on the Horseshoe in New Braunfels, Texas. Such a beautiful setting – and an absolutely gorgeous couple!
