So now, in my mind, she will always be known as the Warrior. She will one day be sixteen and I will still call her the Warrior and she'll have no idea why. Remember my post on finding the perfect endearments? This is how they come to be -- some random event that sticks a name in your mind for forever.
It really was a fanstastic Thanksgiving with eating, reading, playing games, hanging out, sleeping, movies. I couldn't have asked for a better time! And I'm so thankful for so much in my life that I don't even know where to begin. I'd list them here but I'd be afraid of forgetting someone so just know that if you're reading this, I'm thankful for you :)
P.S. I just saw that Sharon (of Sharon Loves Books and Cats -- which is an awesome blog title) is giving away an ARC of The Forest of Hands and Teeth (link to contest). I really wish I had a few extras to give away here, but this is the next best thing! So if you're looking for an early read, head over to her site! Thanks Sharon!
