Living Fearless

906F4016-4311-4757-807B-B576AFF7C386

Okay, not quite “Fearless” as in totally without fear. I mean, fear is a good thing. It keeps us safe and sound, and makes us question our choices so we’re sure we’re making the right ones. Of course, you don’t want to fall into the trap of being too fearful either, so I’ve been taking …

Update June 2016

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged anything! Yikes. Here’s a quick update of what’s been keeping me busy. WRITING: Let’s just say this school year got away from me. It feels like I did a lot, and nothing, all at the same time. I worked to get books ready to re-list after …

#WriterWednesday — Writer’s Life — Exercise

jogging1

This year I’ve done a lot of reevaluating and reorganizing of my time. I always feel so busy writing, editing, promoting, planning, etc. that I don’t feel like I have any extra time left in my schedule for anything else. While my kids are at school, that’s my writing time. How could I take time …

IMG_8514

So I’d heard about this whole Stitch Fix thing once or twice before and finally decided to give it a try. I mean, my friends who use it and love it couldn’t be wrong, right? Last month, after looking in my closet and not liking much of what I saw, I figured it was time. …

#RelayForLife

Aunt Judy and me during our trip back home to visit her over Easter break.

I don’t usually post about personal things going on in my life, but today, I am. Back in October of 2014 my aunt Judy was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung and Brain cancer. I wrote a post about it back then, but could never bring myself to post it. It was just too…real. But here’s …

Hey! How’s it Going?

I feel like I’ve been MIA from my website for a long time. Sure, I’ve had a Friday Reads post here or there, a recipe or two, even a cover reveal (So pretty!), but not much news from me directly. Of course, I love all of those other things, which is why I put them …

One of the things I love most about fall is apple picking with the family. And every year we say we won’t fill the bag. Then every year the bag of apples is overflowing by the time we get to the car. I usually have plans for what I’ll make and start right away. This …

Poolside Paperback Reads

photo-25 copy 3

One of the things I love most in the summer is going to the pool with the kids. But they usually last a lot longer in the unheated water than I do, so I usually get time to lounge in the sun with a good book. This year, I bought a couple of paperbacks so …
