Happy Hobbit Day!

Good morning, all! It's so crazy to be making a post this early in the day. Usually, I post late at night when there's actually time to sit down and write. But today is a special occasion because...today's HOBBIT DAY! Just in case you're wondering, I did not make this up. It's actually a thing. Just google… Continue reading Happy Hobbit Day!
