  1. Michele,

    The exciting news is that the book we sent you last month, “I Just Want My Kids To Be Happy! Why you shouldn’t say it, why you shouldn’t think it, what you should embrace instead,” recently won a Gold Medal in the 2008 Mom’s Choice Awards.

    I know you’ve been on a hiatus, but wondered if you’ve had a chance to look at it.

    (For a few laughs, go to YouTube to view our book’s video: Sylvia Strikes Again.)

    Please let us know what you think of the book.

    Thanks so much.

  2. Hi Aaron,

    Thanks so much for the book – which looks lovely – and congrats on your success. It’s certainly an important topic.

    I’m not doing any happiness-related stuff right at the mo, Aaron. But rest assured your title is at the top of the pile for my return!

    Best wishes for continued success with the book. 🙂

    Ciao for now,

  3. What a great site! As a firm believer in what you put your energy towards is what you manifest the most, it’s nice to see your emphasis on increasing and sustaining happiness. I’ll definitly be back for more. Also, It’d be great to quote one of your posts with your permission of course. Let me know.

    Remember life is short. Do your happy dance. Enjoy life.

  4. Thanks for your lovely comments, Denise! You’ve made my day. 🙂

    I’d be delighted for you to reproduce any post(s) – with a link back would be great.

    And let’s keep doing those happy dances!
