Just got home from our Thanksgiving travels to find this wonderful surprise! Thank you Michelle and Lucy, for all your hard work in putting this together - and for choosing my story : )

I'm looking forward to some lovely reading over the weekend as I work my way through this incredible list of writers. Soon as I put the kids to bed and get my hot cocoa, I'll be all set for a perfect evening - thanks again!
