      How was your month?

      1. I know right? And the romance was so incredibly sweet and amazing – I was totally shipping her and Brennan the entire time. My month was good! Busy, trying to get a grip on work and life, but good! Thanks for asking πŸ™‚

      2. Yes! Me too! And then when they kinda were not so friendly, it like AHH! XD I loved Jade too though… she’s adorable!!
        Good! Yeah, I feel like this time of year is always busy! πŸ˜› Of course!

      3. Also, one of my friends on Goodreads just followed you and I sent you a friend request because I had NO IDEA YOU HAD A GOODREADS!! πŸ˜›
        So yeah. πŸ˜‰

      4. Ha ha, yeah, I got it a long time ago but kind of forgot about it. I just kind of…reactivated it recently.

I love comments!! The only thing I ask is that you keep them clean. Thank you! :D
