The Scream Heard Around the World

if you heard something (like a screaming woman) around 7:00 AM CST, it was me!
What an exciting email to wake up to
You're allowed to be shocked...I most certainly am!  But now that the shock has worn off (a little), 
I'm so, simply put...HAPPY :)
Here is a list of the 2012 Simple Stories Design Team:
