Hi Elise! I'm back from my blogging break! I hope all has been going well for you and your family in your new place.

Thank you so much for being such a sweet friend and for your comments and prayers!

I took this test and I was Bette Davis - I could not believe how true to me it was. It was majorly off on a couple of things but for the most part it had me pegged!

I do hope you have a blessed New Year! I look forward to hanging out in the blog world with you!
