  1. Anne Love, I do think I adore you the more I get to know you! (and not because you made the super sweet comment at the end either). Can we hang out sometime? ;-)) Every time I spend a bit of time with you either online or in person you bless me. What fun answers to the 20 questions. Love it!

    1. Aww, sweet, Casey! We absolutely can hang out sometime! This was fun. :)

  2. Thanks for the opportunity to learn some new tidbits about adorable you, Anne!! A girl after my own heart - one who loves Reese's (actually, anything with peanut butter does it for me). I love your vintage camper, I used to have a similar one back in the 60's.

    A "ray of sunshine" is a perfect description of Casey - love her!! And love your sweetness also!!

  3. Thanks, Bonnie. Great to see you here today. I hope all is well with you, and that you are starting some fun holiday preparations at your house. :)

  4. I'm a shortie too--5'2". Worse yet, everyone tells me I look like a sixteen-year-old.
    I sometimes wish I liked coffee. Alas, I can't stand the stuff. But I do love the scent. :)
    Fun list!

    1. I've had those comments about age in my younger decades too. So does my daughter. She's 20, but hardly 100# and only 5'1"


Hey friend! Please leave a comment, no lurking allowed ;)
