Because I haven't been baking as much lately (totally keeping my resolution!), I sometimes scrounge up something for the kids to have for "dessert". One night a few weeks ago it was candy canes off the Christmas tree. That night, after putting the kids to bed, I came down to the kitchen and saw Evie's lunch box sitting on the table, like this:
For some this might just look like a cute little note* from my daughter, but it was more than that to me! It was proof she'd been reading this book:
That's because this book is about a girl whose dad challenges her to write one thank you note a week (in hopes of working an attitude adjusting miracle), and she does. And her name is Pepper Spicer, as Evie accidentally signed. :) It's a fun book; the second by author/blogger/friend) Melanie Jacobson.The first was The List, which I wrote about here.
And, since tomorrow is Valentine's Day, I'll do you a favor and tell you about a sale on her newest book, out next month!
Twitterpated is available for pre-order and TODAY AND TOMORROW you can get 25% off by entering the code: WKNDSALE. That is a seriously great deal. So get out your credit card and tell your husband he's getting you a great LDS chick-lit book for Valentine's Day. I did.
And no, I haven't read the book yet, but I've read her other two and it's impossible that this one will not be awesome.
*Notice Evie's Polish writing and never-taken-a-spelling-test spelling. The question mark after the "sencierley" isn't because she wasn't sure she was sincere, but because she knew she massacred the spelling.
