Hi Jennifer, how exciting the baby is so near! I love twilight too (not the book, the time of day). It's melancholy but beautiful. If you have time to pop in before Sunday, I am having a giveaway at Tale Peddler. Would hate for you not to have a chance but understand if things get rather busy your end. Best wishes. xx
