Soon!

On Thursday, February 20th, 2014, I received a Facebook message from an amazing blogger friend (Sibyl Sheffey Lilly at Looking for a Break in the Clouds) and this is what she sent me… The word “soon” should have been enough to get me excited, dance a jig, and start painting a nursery, but it didn’t. …
