How could I have not mentioned this sooner:
My nephew called me to talk about Harry Potter Book 7 after he finished it. I adored our conversation. He's smart. And he knows it.
I've been working on my sister essays. While I do most of my writing via typing on Mimi the Mac, I have been making revisions on paper using my Kate Spade pencils. I adore these pencils. Entirely because they are Kate Spade.
