We’ve Opened Subscriptions!!

So last Wednesday we were finally able to open up subscriptions! Yay!! Oh my gosh I was so excited but also really very nervous that I was going to hear crickets. A lot of hard work has gone into getting this ready but I was preparing myself for it to take a while before anyone clicked over and joined in my little party.

20 Facts About Me

I got married on Halloween last year. I do like Halloween, but that's not why we went for that particular date. It was just the only Saturday the venue was free at that time of year. I wanted an Autumn wedding. As suggested in number 1, Autumn is my favourite season. I love the changing colours, the slight crispness in the air and pumpkin pie!! I was born in Winchester and went to university there. It is still my favourite city. I lived abroad for a few months when this song was released and it made me totally homesick. Wessex Boy by Frank Turner The Cathedral Grounds really is the best place to sit with friends on a sunny day. My current box set binge is Warehouse 13 (second time around... and what?!) Much to my husbands pleasure I have recently become a fan of the superhero movies. Me of three years ago is probably shaking her head at me right now. I am LOVING the Avengers movie. Captain America is my favourite, I mean... come on! I love food, I am not one of those girls that goes out for a meal and claims "I couldn't possibly eat all of this" after two bites.

My love of Italian food is how I found myself working as an Au Pair for three months just outside Rome, in a town called Frascati.
