The Best Policy

I was recently tagged as a recipient of the Honest Scrap award by Allison at Lemonade Life. First I’d like to thank the academy, my agent, the rest of the cast and crew, the writers…..kidding.

Secondly you have to tag 10 people with the award. Ok, simple enough. Let’s do this. Continue reading
