A Little About Holly and Hollybee Tells: updated July 2019

I am a mid 30’s blogger who started blogging over 10 years ago. I was college student for extra money and needed something that would work around school. This is my 5th blog and I really love what I do.  I do not have children, but I do have two kittens I treat as my children, they are very spoiled. I love to read, and enjoy reading all types of books, my favorite books are historical fiction, mystery/thriller and historical christen fiction. I enjoy following political issues and I really love a good deal. I am one of 5 children and I am enjoy spending time with my family.

I have been a type 2 diabetic since 2007 and I am very big on promoting truths about this chronic illness. I also have an anxiety disorder and love to talk on that also. I feel that more people need to be informed about both if these disabilities so that they know how to act around people who have them.
