almost there...

I can't believe the day has finally arrived. :D

And before we actually get started, I wanted to say a big thank you to those out there working their butts off to keep Dewey's spirit alive in her read-a-thon. (You know who you are.) And to all the participants who knew and loved Dewey, while we're missing her fiercely, let's not forget that this is a day to celebrate her and all she did for us! And for those of you who never got the chance to know Dewey, just know that you undoubtedly would have loved her, and know that she would have been so thrilled that you decided to join in this day of fun and sharing.

Okay, off to feed the dog, cut the coffeecake, dish out the bowls of fruit salad, and decide what book I'll be starting with. Have a truly wonderful day, everyone!!!!
