500 Pieces of Prudent Advice...

Are you familiar with the blog turned book "500 Pieces of Prudent Advice for my Baby Daughter"? I discovered this gem-of-a-blog a while back [post here] and loved both the idea and the advice given. Now, it's in print.

My friend Beth [who finally put a blog together- she's a great writer and you'll want to follow her] sent me this pic/text yesterday:

We're published! This was my contribution:

#157 If you want to leave a party and you don't have a good excuse, spill something on yourself.

Jaime's blog is a great read and I can't wait to own her book. My mom did something similar for me when I graduated from high school. She had the meaningful people in my life: family, mentors, teachers, other moms, etc... write me a letter with their advice and then she had it bound in a book. I love it and was humbled by the thought that went into it.
