  1. I love this list so far! It’s been great getting to know you better these last couple of months … even though Facebook is taking up more time than either of us really should be spending. 🙂

    Just one question I can’t help but ask … on #33, was it more fun helping him into it or out of it? The romance writer in me is just dying to know.
