Yesterday I spent the day eating off the generous dole of others and searching for an appropriate party location for my upcoming 30th birthday. As such, my blogging had to take a backseat in light of the impending death of my youth (eleven days and counting . . . . tick, tick, tick, tick). These things happen. I have discovered the perfect birthday gift too! Look at what Andrea and Mark of Just One More Book received recently thanks to the largesse of one Hot Man of Children’s Literature #33. Lucky, clever, highly-talented duo. Now to figure out how to coerce my husband into getting me one of my own. Poor husband of mine.
