I was so excited to find out that I had been matched with Foodie Penpals creator, Lindsay, for the month of September. I had a blast participating for the 1st time last month, so I got right to work when the penpal matches were sent out. I love reading Lindsay's blog The Lean Green Bean [...]

I'm so excited to share today's Makingmine feature!
