By Sassy Cabot from the Read ’Em and Eat Mysteries by Terrie Farley Moran
So I guess everyone knows that before my BFF Bridgy and I moved to Fort Myers Beach and opened the Read ’Em and Eat Café and Bookstore, we lived in Brooklyn, New York. Much as I love living year round on a gorgeous beach where the temperature goes from warm to hot and back to warm again, I sometimes miss the change of seasons. Especially when I look at the calendar and realize that tomorrow is the first day of Spring. Back in the Brooklyn days, I always had so much fun each Spring looking for signs of grass bursting through the ground and buds popping open on the trees.
And when Spring arrives it brings color and exuberance. I used to write poems and stories in my journal about the renewal of the fields in Prospect Park and the Norway maple tree that stood at the curb in front of our house.
So to celebrate Spring, I am giving away this gorgeous journal to one lucky commenter. To enter please tell us anything at all about journaling or perhaps mention how happy you are to have Spring on your doorstep. Giveaway closes at midnight your time, Thursday, March 21st.
It is always great to talk to you. If you want to follow along in our adventures, you can find us in Well Read, Then Dead, Caught Read-Handed and Read to Death.
