The Friday 56

Hi fellow 56'ers!

I'm at work... literally on break at the moment... so please forgive my empty post.



Leave your 56 and book beginnings post urls in the comments and I'll visit you all this weekend sometime.

Thank you for sticking with me through my life changes that have affected my reading and posts. 💜

Happy weekend to you all!

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.
