happy winter! & update

i'm still in shock, as of today there are over 134 comments on my book cover! what the what!? i'm thrilled that you voted took the time to share all of your ideas/thoughts/opinions and suggestions! i feel so lucky and even more excited than ever about this book!

E V E R Y O N E !

i'm happy to report that we've taken your feedback and finalized the cover! yay! i'll have an update on that tomorrow morning, along with an sneak peek of the new and improved book cover. but for now, we are headed out as a family on a little christmasy adventure. this is the first day off for us to just relax together in, oh, about 7 months! i'm actually declaring that my "maternity leave" is starting today! (just means more relaxing on my part!) we'll be picking up some last minute pressies and enjoying our time without worrying about grading, students (my husband) or writing, editing, or art shows (moi).

it's pretty chilly here in new england now, no snow yet, but as you can see, ada is ready! she and nigel are looking forward to sledding and making snow angels soon... ; )

ada turned 7 months on the full moon solstice (yesterday)

see you here tomorrow

  1. I can't wait to hear about the book.. it's on my wish list.... I so want this one! hugs to you and happy holidays! hugs fr Fargo, bonnierose

  2. Warmest wishes to you and your sweet family and OMG - it is Ada's first Christmas!!!!!

    Such a special and magical time ... and hold onto your heart - each year it gets even better! This year my girl is over the moon with excitement; she's been talking to our house gnome, Fred (you do have a house gnome, don't you? gotta get one - they are very handy folk) and whispering to him to make me a picture and to tell Santa she's been very good ...

    Can't wait to see the new cover! I couldn't decide myself ... I loved the original but see the wisdom of the newer version. It will rock I know!

  3. xoxo to Ada! Wishing y'all a very sweet first Christmas together!

  4. Merry Christmas to you, Sarah! :) Have fun relaxing and snuggling your little pink lamby-girl. (She looks so huggable and cute in her fuzzy-soft snow suit!)

  5. What a cutie! I want to kiss those sweet cheeks! Merry Christmas to the 3 of you. I can't wait to see your book!

  6. thanks friends! yes, she is very huggable and cozy in her new snowsuit!
    lis- yes, i'll need to figure out a gnome too! how sweet! : ) glad to hear it just gets better and better. we figure that this might be the only christmas in many many years that we can get away without any presents under the tree at our house! we're not scrooges, it's just because she doesn't understand the whole santa part yet, but also because, ahem, she's getting plenty of treats from everywhere else!! we're over flowing here with ada stuff!
