perfect idea! I would love to take a swim in what you have to share...and aren't books and magazines the best presents to get? (and give!!)

this makes me want to make a similar offering, to keep this going.

Blogger Jg. for FatScribe said...

did someone say "giveaway"?! lovely idea for a thoughtful, interesting gift basket to a friend or two, no? As I am currently moving (not chronicling the, ahem, adventure like you and your daughter did!), giving away a substantial portion of my library is befitting as well.

don't have to enter me into the drawing, Tina. just wanted to say "hey," and another great post!

oh. I would, I would very much like a box of magazines to drift away with now. Oh. I would so very much need it. Do not know what to do about myself, not where to go, feels like I am blowing up.
Just got told by this boy I am so veryvery very much in love with, that he has met another girl...who he really likes, so we can not be.
oh. how much I believed in this.
and, how lost I feel now.
