I love writing these posts for you. You don’t read them regularly but I’ve been putting them up here on the blog, both as missives to you and reminders to me.

Surprise Party for a Tween: What I learnt

Throwing a surprise party for a tween can be challenging, especially when you’re a Type A person like I am. Things need to be planned down to the last, agonizing detail and nothing can or should go wrong.
