We had a mashed potato bar at my wedding in 2009. To this day I am told that it was the best reception ever. There is no going wrong with mashed potatoes

I loved this newsletter. And your book jewelry.

I also am a fan of New Kids On The Block. My brother and sisters are 8, 10, and 13 my senior. Growing up, we had a VHS of the NKOB concert. I watched it over and over and over again until I knew all the lyrics and choreography. Not many of my friends listen to NKOB, let alone know who they are. I like to think my knowledge and love for them made me stand out.

What MM said! I click on these the minute I see them in my inbox. You, Jacqueline Woodson, and Nancy Paulsen all in the same room? My idea of heaven, by the way, as a reader (and teacher of college children literature courses)!
