"What? Really? No." I said, when my friend Lily Be posted a photo on Facebook of this year's Newcity Lit50 issue, featuring myself and Lynn on the cover. I couldn't believe it then and I can't believe it now. I am amazed and humbled by the support and accolades that we've received since purchasing Women & Children First bookstore almost a year ago. Every day of co-owning a small indie business has been a struggle, but every day comes with a reminder of why we're doing this. Admittedly, some of those reminders have been larger than others, but all of them equally gratifying.
