I hope you are having a wonderful week! It's time for another Random Thursday and there are some news to tell. Meg is really busy right now so she does not have the time to host the link-up which is why Lin and Em asked me to help out. Of course I said yes because Random Thursday is always a lot of fun and I am honored that the girls asked me to join the fun. So yep, you can see my face on that banner now. I will miss Meg and I hope she will still find the time to link up as often as possible.
So here is this week's topic. My first topic as a Random Thursday co-host. As you can see, I am pretty excited. And also very touched because of Em's sweet welcome greetings.
