Hey guys! How has your week been?

My dad is doing a lot better. My grandpa is still not feeling the best but he is doing great work in Physical Therapy. Since I have been traveling a lot these past weeks, this week felt like catch up just to try and get back into my rhythm. But it was mine and my boyfriends 2 year anniversary so we went out to a murder mystery dinner. It was a lot of fun. My boyfriend was even picked to play a suspect. He was one of the three pigs. Oh, did I forget to mention it was a fairy tale themed murder mystery. haha It was something fun and different.

April 2nd is my 4 year blogoversary celebration and I have giveaways from some of my favorite authors as well as a really big prize giveaway from me as a thank you for these past 4 years! I hope you will want to come celebrate with me.

    I’ve always wanted to go to a murder mystery dinner and a fairy tale theme sounds really fun! Happy Anniversary to you and your boyfriend!

    I hope your Dad and Grandpa feel better soon. My Mom has been in and out of the hospital this last week and it’s hard since we live far. So I understand how worried you are. I hope they all feel better soon!
