I got nominated!


Good afternoon World!

I was very surprised – and delighted – to have been nominated to receive the Liebster Award from  http://www.weblessyourheart.com .  Now you can find out some perfectly random facts about me while I answer the questions that were posed.  Ready?  Here we go!

11 Totally Random Things About Me
