    It was a HUGE honor. Please keep congratulating me but the truth is Tara, aka Weird Wolf, is the one who should be getting the accolades. She worked so hard on the piece and did such and awesome job putting it together. If you get a convo asking if the video team can come visit you- SAY YES!

    Wow, the timing of your visit, like you said, but wow. Seriously, wow. So where can we find 5 acres of land I can rent for $22 a year, in Brooklyn?!!

    My family and I visited with Susan and her four legged family and what a delightful experience it was! The animals are clearly loved, the yarn is spectacular, and the idea is brilliant. She adds so much to our Summer home on the Vineyard.
