Another Period Drama Tag!

My dear friend Evangeline from Over The Hills sent me this tag--and I admit I was very excited about it.

The Sunshine Blogger Tag

Evangeline has once again been a dear and nominated me via Twitter DM for the Sunshine Blogger Tag! Thank you, friend! What's the furthest you've ever been on holiday?

Versatile Blogging Award

Lady Eowyn of Captured By The Word nominated me for the Versatile Blogging Award! Intrigued, I looked up the word "versatile," trying to figure out the meaning of the award, and according to my Mac's dictionary versatile means able to adapt or be adapted to many different functions or activities. Well, I guess I do... Continue Reading →
