    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave

    Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening

    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,

    great blog!
