  1. Good morning, Leigh! Great to learn more about you. Being from Canada, I had to look up Paula Deen. I'm thinking my family would like it if cooking her recipes was my favorite thing to do, too. ;)

  4. Leigh - What happened to the other 11 books? Are they stored under the bed, or in the lineup as future releases?

  5. Leigh, I love the top photo. It shouts confidence. I used to store books under my bed, but my shoes demanded more space.
