Look What Arrived in the Mail!

I could not be more excited to receive and share advance reader copies for No Peacocks! And first thing this morning, I stopped by The Cathedral School of St. John the Divine and A.C.T. to drop off these long awaited copies.


The gorgeous flowers are from the AWESOME Barr family! Thank you!

While on the grounds, I couldn’t help but notice Phil, Jim, and Harry’s fancy new coop.


Unfortunately for me, it was a one-peacock day. I saw either Jim or Harry or Harry or Jim.


I can’t tell you which peacock is which, but supposedly ALL the children know which one is Jim and which one is Harry.

Have a great day everyone!
