The above is one of the prime examples of why I love the blogosphere.  Allyn of All Things Ami so kindly created this illustration of me AND for me, expressing all the inspiration that I derive from books and reading!  I only wish that my eyes and mouth were that cute in real life and my hair was always perfectly draped around my face.  I've mentioned time and time again how I've been impressed with the creativity as well as generosity of those bloggers that I have "met" and this original piece from Allyn is a perfect example of why I love blogging and the blogging community.  I look forward to the smiles that this illustration will charm out of people and am off to find a frame for it.  Thanks again Allyn!

I hope your weekends were full of such pleasant surprises as this!
