Blame the strangers

Hi again!

I can’t believe it, but I’ve been nominated again for the Liebster Award. This time by the wonderful Sam over at Bellsiebooks. If my ego grows too big, blame these kind women.

Since I spent most of my evening last night filling out my nomination from Kristi at Hidden Staircase, I’ve decided that in order to get at least a little work done today I’ll have to forego the random facts, nominations, and questions from me.
