But little did I know, that crazy idea I had during the summer would be received so warmly with my Facebook friends. I started posting them daily there and got so many requests for a place to see them all at once. A book, a blog... a tumblog.
One day a book may be in order. But for now they can all be seen in one place at Lunchbox Awesome.
