A Mid-Year Resolution Check-In

Tuesday, July 5, 2016

Hey look, Louise kept all her resolutions. Rah, rah, Louise. (I’m sorry, did that sound sarcastic? Because it was TOTALLY SUPPOSED TO!)

She said, “I have realized that the party is not just to celebrate the novel being published—it’s my chance to say thank you to all the people that made it possible.” I love that about Louise. She’s a generous, caring…
