This has not been the best 2 weeks…sorry for not commenting back on every post. I will probably have another bad week but then I’ll be back to normal. There have been some business bumps and my dad’s mom passed away. It’s been busy and emotional.
As normal, sign up for my newsletter (in the right sidebar) —-> to be able to enter the separate $50 giveaway that I host for subscribers only every month! Plus, I promise my weekly newsletter is good – quick, fun, and not a huge link list. I also write a little about myself every week and answer reader questions!
