    Oh, and your interview is up and running. :-)

  3. Hi Jess, thanks for the award.
    I too am a sucker for Disney movies. Naturally I love Beauty and the Beast but also The Lion King. I cry every time I watch that. Oh and The Sword in the Stone. That is an awesome movie.

    I think your blog looks fabulous btw so I'm following you now :-)

  4. Thanks so much for the award, and congratulations on getting it yourself!

    I'm intrigued by that collection of snow globes. I buy my partner a new snow globe each Christmas. I love them!

  5. Thanks for the award, Jess! I'm working on an acceptance post.

    I love the movie Love Actually and I love traveling also. Living in London for a year for graduate school was the best thing I ever did and gave me many chances to travel throughout Europe. Excited for your upcoming trip to the US.
