No matter if you’ve been coming around these parts for weeks, months, years or if this is your very first TT rodeo, everyone is welcome to link up below. {Pay attention – this is a special edition.}

HB banner Just like last year, I’ve decided to go all fancy and stuff and put together a tour video. I really like doing them this way – it’s so much fun. This go around, I’m a little nervous because I’m making my vlogging debut in it! Please don’t mock my southern drawl {haha!}…. oh and don’t miss the bloopers at the end :) I promise not to cry if you laugh at me! {I’m also sharing this at The Nester’s Home Tour party, too}

Since this is a special edition of TT – we’ve got a giveaway – WOOT WOOT!!! So let’s learn about the sponsor: Becky at Good Neighbors Candles.

HB sponsor Becky’s candles look and sound soooo yummy! And, who doesn’t love candles, right? With hot chocolate, candy cane & butter pecan – OH MY! –  so many more to choose from – they’re perfect for gift giving or even keeping all to yourself :)
