This is a bit of an anniversary for my blog, since May last year was when I started posting regular updates, reviews, and giveaways. In honor of that, I'll be hosting a giveaway every week, so stay tuned for the first one. And... Happy Blog-aversary! :D
In other news, I'm sure you're wondering about the picture at the top of this post. Isn't it gorgeous?! After a year and a month, Hubbins and I finally hung our first piece of art in our apartment. (Don't you just love it?!) Hubbins bought it for me while he was deployed, but we never could find a frame that would fit. This weekend, we remedied that. Now, thanks to Target, this beauty resides above our couch.
