The Fred MacMurray Blogathon is Here!!!

The Fred MacMurray Blogathon is here!!! I apologize for the lateness at getting this post up. My aunt decided earlier this week to come visit this weekend so I've been getting ready for her and I keep forgetting about my own blogathon!! So if I'm a little late in seeing your posts that's why.

P.S. If you share your post on Twitter make sure to tag @solidmoonlight and I will retweet!

P.S.2. Don’t worry if your post is a day or two late. I’ll be happy to add it 😊
