Good evening (or good morning… depending on your POV)! This week, if we were sharing details of our personal lives over coffee, mine would be decidedly decaf!
I’m writing to you while all curled up and ready for bed. It’s after midnight and the #JustAddTea Twitter party will be going down in less than 11 hours… and I haven’t slept yet…

You know, that stuff that makes the world go round, as they say.
