 Reception tonight at #2015scbookfest says semi-formal. So glad I remembered my Star Wars purse.  Look what happened in my garden overnight.  Is your co-worker as cute as mine? I think not.  Happy New Year from the #schuurhounds.  Someone is exhausted from "helping" me with the Christmas cards. #schuurhounds
