Blogger's Note:

Thanks Tania! I'm learning to do stuff in small bites but Some days I forget I don't have the big chunks I had this time last year!

Oh my golly Tania. Here is a really funny coincidence. Barbara was born in a town 20 minutes north of me and was here in the Berkshires at the Millay Colony on retreat. We had a sweet exchange. I will email you about guest blog posting. I hope your evening is lovely. I am so happy to be connected. xo S

Thank you for accepting. I enjoyed your blog post and your comments on my blog made me smile. I am packing up and heading to another beach town for a couple of weeks. Hopefully I will be very productive as there are a million things swirling around in my head that need to be released!

Hi, Tania,

Thanks so much--you're right, it IS nice to connect! Wow--what a busy house you must have. How do you find the time and willpower to write? I am still searching for that magic potion that will make family life, work, and writing all come together clearly.

I'll definitely check out your blog!

Thanks again,

Hi Tania! Thanks for the compliment! I'll share with the illustrator! My apologies that it's taken me so long to respond.
