    We wanted to wish everyone a very happy holiday season and to thank you all for your ongoing support. With the releases of her record and book, All Fall Down and Diamond in the Rough, it was an exciting year for Shawn—one in which she had the wonderful opportunity to catch up with so many of you, reacquaint with friends at radio, talk to some great writers and bloggers and make a video that included gorillas on unicycles. Who could ask for more?!

    And 2013 is already shaping up to be another great year!
