3) My first blog interview with an author- Hi Megan Crewe! I read and reviewed her novel Giving Up the Ghost and was so terrified to approach her. I mean, I don't want to take up any of her time or anything. But what the heck? Maybe she won't even answer. And then she did answer and she was the sweetest thing. My first foray into the close knit world of bloggers and (for me anyway) YA authors and I was addicted!
One Page at a Time YA Reviews- I'd been going over to her site for ages and loved her to itty bitty pieces. Seriously, everything on her blog either made me smile or cracked me up so I decided to tell her in an email. Now we talk pretty regularly and she has been a lifeline for me. She is made of epicness.

7) Starting up Happily Ever Endings- Kinda of a little lame but let me explain. Every time I get a comment from someone saying that a HEE helped someone, it makes me feel good. I really feel like I found something no one else is doing that lots of people need/want and I love helping people out! They are a lot of work and I am eternally grateful for every single person who helps out by making them. They have already helped me several times. I'll definitely continue chronicling the ending to books in a series.
8) Getting my awesome bookshelves built- My hubby had been promising me since we moved into the house that I would get two very awesome bookshelves built into closets. He finally delivered last year and I am so in love with them. They don't fit all my books but a lot more have homes now than they did before.
