Hi, Emily,

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe when I was 7 or 8, all of Nancy Drew when I was 9, and Anne of Green Gables when I was 11. I know exactly where I was and how I felt when I read each one. Some of my best childhood memories!

Thanks for asking,
Jenn

“You know, I found a gray hair the other day. I almost broke the sound barrier rushing to the pharmacy to get some dye. Beth snorted. Oh please! You're a blonde-no one can see gray hair up there. Now, you get one down under, and then you can panic.”
