  1. Jana, thanks so much for including one of my posts this week--so unexpected, given my surname-specific work on the current series (okay, well maybe somebody else might be researching Kelly or Stevens).

    I know others have said this before in comments, but thank you so much for continuing to post your list of noteworthy articles. It makes for a handy reading list of "The Best Of" for the week and helps us to find great bloggers we might otherwise miss.

    1. Hi Jacqi,

      You're so very welcome! And thank you for your very kind comments.

  2. Jana, it's so kind of you to include my post in your Fab Finds this week! Thanks so much for reading - and for the welcome motivation your mentions provide. Like Jacqi, I love reading your list an can't wait to scramble off on my iPad that night to catch up on posts I may have missed.

Keep up the fabulous work!
