Princess Unbound

I have another fun and quirky interview today — my hosts are the lovely bloggers at Pages Unbound. I also get to answer my favorite question: the “is there anything we forgot to ask you?”, or what I like to call The Blank Check. What did I decide to ask myself on this particular occasion? There’s only one way…
