welcome february (and my 3rd love)

I love the snow.  I really do.  But I am done with winter.  So. Done.  Thanks Bethany for the cute wallpaper! And my 3rd love, that would be my Kindle.  I somehow can never read one book at a time and having a Kindle just exacerbates that 'problem', but I love it.  I especially enjoy […]
