I have a lot to be thankful for. I live in a beautiful place, I have awesome friends and family and health and happiness and an adorable doggie. I get to do a job that is both fun and fulfilling for me. I am also especially thankful for MY DEAR AUTHORS & ILLUSTRATORS.
I am so thrilled every day that I get to work with such talented artists. Not only are you great at what you do, you are all great people, who I genuinely like and care about. I am really excited about your work, I am amazed by your brilliance, I think you are all cute and funny and charming (even when you are being neurotic). Even if I don't talk to you all every day, I really do think about you all every day, and it makes me glow with pride.
Now go eat a lot and rest a lot and get ready to smash it in December. We have an amazing new year to gear up for!
