The second full moon of this month, the Blue Moon, is December 30th and it's lovely to end this year on such a beautiful note. All that to say, I'm over the moon because

  31. Hello Sandra!

    What a neat giveaway! Sounds like fun so count me in. Hmmm, I'd say I'm interested in the mug rugs. I love the name! Very cute :)

    Oh! A week or so ago, you asked what I did at my job. I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to respond! I answer phones for an IT company. Eight and a half hours of sitting waiting for a phone to ring. Not by any means what I'm craving to do but I'm thankful. Plus, when the computer doesn't crash (my computer doesn't work properly at the IT company...ironic?) I'm able to spend time with my bloggy friends!

    I hope you have a marvelous Thursday!
    Jen
