Happy 2017 everyone, and a New Year’s welcome from your BOTW weekend hosts! Did you have a great holiday season? I always find the start of a new year a bit mind boggling, because each hear just seems to fly by more quickly than the one before, don’t you think? Do you have any resolutions for 2017? Typically, I’m not a resolution sort of person, mostly because I just seem to set myself up for utter failure, lol. 🙂 This year, though, I’m taking a different approach and hope to share some of that with you in a post next week.
We are sad to say that our dear Jenna has left the party. She has a lot on her plate! We will truly miss her and thank you so much, Jenna, for being such a great host and friend! We know our friendships will remain beyond the party!
I would love if you could please follow each of our fabulous hosts in some way.
