Posting today is extra special for me as I’ve just returned from one of the greatest launch parties I’ve ever attended–for Debutante Danielle Younge Ullman’s FALLING UNDER. Not only do I love this book, I had the honor of blurbing it. As a former Deb and Founder, I felt a bit misty watching Danielle read last night. If any of you get the chance to hear Danielle read, take it….

I Could Have Danced All Night by Founder Tish

I’ve never been one for drawn-out goodbyes, especially when I have children and dogs running into the room full of delicious ideas, like blueberry pancakes and long walks in the snow. I just want to say to my fellow founders, I’ve loved getting to know you all. It was heaven having others to share in the publication process. I wish you the very best and hope we’ll stay in touch….

Blue Jeans, Baby by Founder Tish

A good friend told me today that she’s never met anyone quite so obsessed with jeans as me. My answer was that if anyone else had had the wild and wooly denim ride I’ve had over the past two years, they’d be every bit as manic. It began with what was supposed to be a one-time denim splurge–a pair of gorgeous, faded black, boot-leg Sevens that cost more than all…

Where’s the Living Room? by Founder Tish

We’ve never had a living room before. Well, technically, the room came with the house, but other than lining one wall with our dream floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, we’ve always pretty much ignored the room, only stopping by to search for a book, or store a hockey bag, or display the piano I swore I’d learn how to play but eventually wound up selling. The room was a glorified garage. One evening,…

Beginnings in Bayfield by Deb Tish

I like this week’s topic, beginnings. I’m all about beginnings. The first bite of a hot dog cannot be topped. Nor can the very first time you put on a new t-shirt or take a sip of icy cold lemonade or drive your first car. First kisses always made me weak and don’t get me started on crisp new journals that open with a crack and a promise. I’m not in…
