BIG!

I left you a little teaser yesterday about some exciting news at our house.

Wow. Who knew you all were so good at guessing? Thanks for filling up my inbox with your curiousity. But...

No, I'm not pregnant
No, we're not moving back to Arkansas. 
No, we're not buying a new house. Or a new car.
No, I didn't get a job.

The big news is that John's book comes out TODAY!

I'm so proud of him. I re-read the book last week and my heart is just bursting with pride for him! It's fantastic

He told me I could do a giveaway...and I will get to that soon. For now, I just want to rejoice with him at seeing a dream realized. 

It's like Christmas...in SEPTEMBER! Thanks for being happy with and for him.

This is HUGE!! Congratulations to both of you! In a way, John did give birth, so my comment wasn't totally out of line yesterday! ;)

Love you muchly.
