HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KAIT!!!!
If you have a minute, leave a comment with a birthday wish and show Kait how much we appreciate her and the work she does on this blog! A new year has begun for her and she is all ready to face it head on! Lord willing, it will be this year that we finish our novel, Scattered Tears. Isn't that a good goal to set?!
