    You are one busy girl, lady! I hope they are treating you like a queen today.

    It was fantastic meeting you and Patrick at the Blue Donkey, I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay. I felt like I made a new bff – then got stupid ass cold feet and did not call you to hang out while you were still in town. (Am working on my apprehensivenissity. ;0 ) Love your blog, your fine sensibility – completely impressed and inspired by your work ethic. I will be sending you some of my writing.

    Love and Happy Mother’s Day!
