Image
Hey peeps! What's up? Maryellen here, and I'm super stoked today because.....

I got tagged by Ashtyn from Just AG to do the AG Q&A Tag! Thanks so much Ashlyn! I'm really excited since I don't get the spotlight very often on ADU, so I hope you enjoy getting to know me better!

Now I was going to do this tag outside, but it ended up raining like cats and dogs, so instead,

I'll be doing it in my room!

I'm usually pretty busy since I cook and do dishes in my family, so when I get some free time I usually ether spend it in here or with my sisters.
