    Yay! (I think that’s me–it’s HardesTy, but I doubt there’s a Larissa Hardesky hanging around, right?) LOL. Thanks so much! This was a wonderful experience all around. 🙂

      Yes, it is definitely you! I am a terrible speller and I looked up your whole name to get it right, then transposed it wrong. It’s embarrassing. Especially to Sudipta who is guilty by association.


  22. Thank you so much! Yesterday was feeling like one of those days until I got home and saw this post. 🙂 I’m so excited!
