January went by so quick. I felt so sluggish at the beginning of the month, but finally feel like I’ve gotten back into the swing of things. I actually found time to blog hop before the month was out. Can you believe it? This month I read five books. My goal this year is to actually spend more time reading books and as a result, I will be reading less. I’m still working on those DIY bookmarks I promised I’d have a giveaway for. I’m almost done, so look for a giveaway to come your way late February, early March. Ish.
