  1. Preach it, girl! Preach it!

    I have very specific pen requirements, I definitely sleep with the phone or a piece of paper close just in case, and I DEFINITELY love and hate it most days. Loved these! Thanks so much for sharing :)

    The website looks lovely, by the way.

      I am glad you like the website. Thanks for reading and commenting! :)
