what a lovely little mousy-miss!
I love your answers too...isnt fall and its foods so fun? I'm trying to be more active just to make myself feel better, not necessarily with a number-on-the-scale goal. Being happy is the main goal... :)

I loved reading more about you Andrea. Your words are filled with so much grace and beauty. What a loving and creative home you must have. Little Miss Ava Blackbird is incredibly sweet like one of your illustrations coming to life!
