Today I received a surprise gift, which I will share with you tomorrow. But today I am also grateful for the kind words of support from the fabulous Mitali Perkins:
"Happy Blog Birthday, Amy! Thanks for all you do to connect and encourage."
…my blog colleague, Diane Chen:
"Amy, I remember sitting near you at the first SLJ summit. I think we may have been the only ones with our computers out typing about the events. I have enjoyed your blog and how you constantly renew yourself with new topics. Thanks."
…and my faithful friend and esteemed author, George Edward Stanley
"Happy, happy birthday, dear friend! This is super! You’ve touched so many lives! Here’s to many, many, many more years!"
I also had some more Tweet shout outs:
