    Michael and Jess,

    Thanks Lynnette, hugs right back at you!

    At the very least SimpleHedgehog is a reminder to do less and do it better. Doing too much can be a problem for me (as I’m sure you remember!) so writing about it more regularly seems a good way to keep that tendency in check.

    The feeling is mutual Westley; connecting with like minds and offering some encouragement and accountability is the reason for the post!
