Things I Love Thursday

I love office supplies…especially notebooks and ball point pens. I love that my friend’s dad follows me on Twitter and bought me a cool journal for Christmas, along with a note encouraging me to keep writing in the new year. And I love that on boxing day I had enough money to go up the street to Staples and buy myself some more pens to write in it with.

I also love…ending sentences with prepositions on purpose. Oh, and…
