  1. Love, love, love this list!! I really want to share it but the picture isn’t coming up for me and I want to share with what I am sure is a gorgeous picture?

  2. My favorite is when people write with heart and thoughtfulness and sneak in some surprising humor. You had me at McSweeney’s and this was just awesome. Happy 2014!

    • Wow, Jean — thank you so much! This is everything for me. This is why I write. To have one other person say that my words affect them. The connection. The laughter. The yes.
