An editor at Wordpress just e-mailed to notify me that my post "Life, Death and a Dinner Table" was selected for Freshly Pressed. Pardon me while I repress the urge to jump out of my seat and scream, throw up and throw a parade all at the same time. I am honored. It's a geeky writer's dream come true. (And an item I can now cross off my bucket list and replace with something new.) Even more, it touches my heart that a post that is so near and dear to my heart was selected for this recognition. My grandmother (whose funeral is mentioned in the post) was a writer as well. In many ways, I believe it is just in my DNA. I know she would be so proud. So thank you, whoever is responsible for this.

As for those of you who have wandered here from Freshly Pressed page...Welcome! Hello! Please feel free to wander around, peek in the medicine cabinet and make yourself at home. But before you do that, we should get to know each other.

And there's only one way to do that.

Hi. I'm Amy. Who are you? 

ps: Now for something a little happier (and a whole lot sassier)!
