Phew, I feel like I say this every week – but what a week Dotties! We are getting ready for holidays around these parts – there are weddings to attend, sunshine states to visit and Winter leaves to crunch under our feet. We have had not one dull moment this year and it’s always keeping me on my toes.

This weekend though is filled with birthdays and snuggling inside from the cold and I can’t wait! What about you Dotties? Have you caught all of the fabulous blog posts we have shared this week?
