I've been a long time fan of Susan Branch. I love her blog and I love her stuff. I'd buy everything she has if I could afford it but I can't & so I don't. But . . .on her blog yesterday she announced that her 2013 calendar was ready and in the store. I dashed over and saw that the shipping charges were almost as much as the calendar itself. The same thing happened last year so I didn't buy it but . . . this year I just couldn't resist. Me bad! I'm thinking that it could be my Mother's Day gift to myself. That would be ok, don't you think?
