So Much to Be Thankful For

Happy Turkey Day! Today, I'm feeling quite thankful for...

Bookish/bloggy friends whose kindness, humor and generosity stuns me daily. I love you guys and have been so blessed that this blog led me to so many great friends. I couldn't do this without you.

• The folks at the Story Studio here in Chicago and my teacher M. Molly Backes, who encouraged me to begin work on my own novel (!!!!!).

• Publishers who have graciously sent me some of my favorite reads this year.

• Living and working so close to Tara, who is always willing to join me for an adventure (from Naperville to NYC, trapeze class to sign language school). I couldn't ask for a better partner in crime.

• A book club that, despite my many objections, continues to push me outside of my reading comfort zone. (I will read Game of Thrones this week. I will. I mean it. Kinda.)

• Authors who wake up every morning and write write write, despite all the fun things happening on TV and the interwebs. Your dedication wows me.

• My family, husband and best friends, who brag about my blog to everyone they meet. I couldn't ask for better cheerleaders.

• And, last but not least: you, dear readers.

I'm beyond thankful to each and every one of you for visiting You have no idea how much your support, friendship, book recommendations and conversation fulfill me!
