  1. What an amazing year! It must have taken you hours to put this post together with all those covers, which by the way, distracted me for a few minutes… thanks! 🙂 I also appreciate you mentioning me – so glad we met, and thankful for all you’ve done to support me. 🙂 xoxo

    1. Well my husband tends to tell me to get my nose out of the book. lol I read riding to the store or trips. I read while cooking. Read watching tv. You get it. He thinks I am a nerd. I kind of am. hee hee! Hope we get to hang out on my next trip to Ohio. Hopefully it won’t be cold or raining. 😉
