Happy October, sweet little pixies! I have grand plans for the month, but truthfully, I’m mostly looking forward to tucking September into the memory bank. I’d like to thank one of my nearest and dearest bloggy friends, Linds of The Flynnigans, for tagging me–these prompts are always a fun way to get SOMETHING down when the ol’ noggin is not cooperating.
This tag was created by Hannah from A Tiny Girl’s Big World, because she wanted to gain insight into the writers of her favorite blogs. If someone knows where she blogs, please reach out to me! I can’t seem to find this info and would love to link back to her. The idea of the tag is:
“There are a series of topics and you have to answer each one with 5 answers (Only once in your post can you add a sixth if you’re really stuck on a particular topic). This way, your readers have a chance to find out a little more about you and hopefully, they’ll be able to connect with you a little more when reading your other posts.”
Here we go!
