  23. Hi,
    I first found your blog through a contest of some sort. I can't remember where. It was either someone linking one of your posts or a big giveaway you signed up for.

    I am a follower

  24. You really expect us to remember how we found you? I'm turning 29 for the first time this year. My old lady brain cannot remember that. I'm going to guess I just stumbled upon you through another blog, but I don't even remember how I started book blogging...and that was only a few months ago. Please don't put me away. I swear I remember to lock my doors at night. And I put the milk in the fridge. And I feed the cat the cat food. Maybe I shouldn't have said anything about the cat. Now I sound like a cat lady. I only I have one. I promise. And I do have control of my house....
