Thank You & A Little Gift

Hello Friends!

Since the release of the article above, I have received such warm and thoughtful responses to this initiative. I sincerely appreciate your support. I hope that you come by Skookum and grab a book. We have so many to give away. 

On another note, sometimes while reading I come across a passage that is so touching or timely that I like to write it down. I have journals full of quotes on love, regret, anticipation, and cheese! Yes, even cheese! I am Italian and a sharp Romano runs through my veins. I learned to journal from my mother who encouraged me to write and think creatively about my life. I would like to share this experience with you! 

I have left five journals for individuals visiting Skookum this weekend. I hope that they serve as a source of reflection and offer you the opportunity to keep a record of all the books that you'll be reading now that there is a Skookum near you! 

Thank you again for your kindness! I'll be decorating Skookum in the next few weeks! The month of love, cupids, and chocolate kisses is just around the corner!

Cheers and have a great weekend!



  1. Hey Jackie, love the comment about journaling. I have been doing that for years. I would also encourage anyone to do the same, it is especially fun to look back over the year to read thought that have inspired and encouraged on specific days. Sincerely Bettyann

    1. Thank you for your response Bettyann. I completely agree! I hope you visit Skookum to pick up a journal for this upcoming year. I know you're an avid reader as well so please feel free to leave a comment on the books. Bookworms love to read an authentic review. Hope all is well! Jacqueline
