    First, Congratulations on your award!!!
    Thank you for passing it on to me, it is greatly appreciated, but more importantly, I found your blog because of it. Can't believe how I missed it. I am now a follower and look forward to your future postings. You have a beautiful blog.

  7. You are most welcome!

    I can't do horror movies either - I would be up all night! I also love purple, which is clearly evident in my daughter's room and clothes... lol

  8. congratulations!!! you deserve it!! thank you so much for passing it on to me :)

  11. Congrats to you - and thanks for giving it to me! That's so sweet of you!

    We're great minds thinking alike: No horror movies for me, either. Purple is my favorite color, too.

  12. Thank you so much for the award, I have passed it on to some other fantastic blogs!


  13. Thank you all for coming by! YAY us!

    As for the Leaf Polishing position - it was a real job! I was 17 and it was for a floral shop. The boss was a horrible, very unhappy woman whose husband hired me as a sales assistant. SHE didn't like me and decided I'd only be useful out in the greenhouse POLISHING LEAVES on plants. I lasted a month..:)

  14. Congratulations Jules on the award and thank you for the kindness of passing it on. Sorry it took me a week to get here to say thanks. :) I am glad to find your blog. I see we read some of the same books.

  15. Thank you so much for passing on the award :D I love seeing random facts about other book bloggers. Unlike you, I absolutely adore horror movies. I watch them like it's my job!
