Hello Wendy,
Last week you pronounced that your own blog "My Ordinary Life" is going private and if somebody wants to keep following you, they had to send you an e-mail. Unfortunaly I missed it. But I'd like to keep following you. Is that possible? I would appreciate it if you would let me know what you think about it.
Thank you so much,
Greetings, Judith
