Nothing like a book festival to get your blood pumping. And it was an over the top, killer balloon situation to boot. Everyone wins.
There is nothing in the world that Ari loves more than balloons. Sometimes I think she would do pretty much anything for one. I have seen her at street fairs completely oblivious to the world around her while trying her best, using all of her powers of persuasion, to obtain a balloon. She also loves [...]
I love reading. I love curling up with a book and losing myself for a few hours. If I don’t read before sleeping, I feel like I don’t sleep at all. There are a few books I read over and over again and they don’t get boring. One of them is The World According to [...]

I used to be obsessed on tiny beads and making stuff with wire. I have a wonderful book from Japan with patterns for all of it, but I never got very good at it. These are the only pictures that survive, although I think the actual cherry and cat are somewhere in an Altoid’s tin, [...]
