Hi, Jessica!
Happy New Year! Just finally got back to blogging and found you had moved, so came to check out the new blog. (well, not so new I guess, but just that I am very behind :) )

Come visit me sometime :) Glad you had a nice Christmas and definitely sounds like you are glad to be home again.

Sorry to see from your book list however that you are just interested in twaddle ;) LOL!!!!!!

Love,
Jen (MrsIncredible)
