  1. Wow 3 posts and the BFF! I feel like it’s a blog take over 🤣 thank you for including me lovely! You are so kind and I’m so glad you like my reviews. Off to check out the others xx

  2. Thanks so much for the double mentions Nicki. I always look forward to your “Links I’ve Enjoyed ” posts but I’m always hesitant to click on it as it usually takes me over an hour by the time I investigate all the delicious links. LOL

  3. Following up on all these links should keep me quiet for an hour or so 🙂
    Thanks for the inclusion of my post on reasons to justify reading (not that anyone really needs to justify it)

  4. Always so many great links. Thanks for the mention, I am so glad you enjoyed so many of my reviews. Off to check out some of the others and add to Mount TBR.
