  • Rand told me this was the first weekend in a long time that he didn't spend at his computer. We could barely remember the last time we went to Bainbridge, but holy cats did we pick a good day for it. #randaldineselfie #selfiesonaboat #bainbridgeisland
  • Dinosaurs.
  • I am absolutely blown away by @somekindofalibrary's gorgeous photo and review of my book. I'm near tears on the lightrail right now (it's been an emotional week). Thank you so much, Renée!
