She's Grand!

Congratulations to Vauxhall Vixen Elyssa Papa for finalling in the NWIndiana RWA's Grand Beginnings Contest with Take a Chance on Me! I see chocolate and a handsome Brit in her future and ours.

Ely, I salute you!

Ohhh, Maggie!!!! Thanks so much! I'm going to have to pay you in kind... maybe I'll add some White Shoulders to your gift, too. LOL.

Thanks! It's been a very interesting week (started off really crappy and ended really awesome). Still can't believe I finalled and have been in a state of disbelief and happy dancingness ever since I opened up the e-mail.

Congrats and here's to many more celebrations to come. I just know we'll be celebrating "the call" very soon!

Terrio, it's never too late to party! I know Ely's thrilled and will be so happy you all stopped by to wish her well. She had a really great week last week, with honorable mention on an entry she submitted in the BookEnds First Hundred Words contest and a couple of requests for a full !
