While everyone else will be counting down the seconds for the big ball to drop in Times Square at midnight, I’ll be counting the days until my first picture book, The Dandelion’s Tale, is released (March 11th, by the way). Just 2 months and under 2 weeks until I can share something I wrote for my girls when they were little with so many other children.

I have a very strong feeling that 2014 is going to be a life-changer, and I can’t wait for it to come. In our house, the ball has been replaced by a glowing dandelion head.

Happy New Year to everyone!

Now, count down with me. December 31st. January 1st. January 2nd….
