  1. Was it hard to just pick 15? Sidebar - will you be home at all over Thanksgiving? Give me a call or drop me a line and let me know!

  2. Very difficult! I didn't want to bore my massive fan base ;) with an endless list though! I will be home for Thanksgiving! Let's meet up. I'm so excited!

  3. Hey Sarah! I just finished "Till We have Faces". It is seriously one of my favorite books now! I find the character Orual fascinating as sometimes she is a villian, sometimes a hero, sometimes without word, sometimes having the most important words- her constant thoughts swaying between the mortal and immortal. This C.S Lewis book was completely captivating!
