To the one who is the best mom in the world and the one who first made me a mom, ❤️ Thanks for an amazing Mother’s Day! We took Luci to her first musical and bonus @bethkirkp was in it! Sushi and ice cream to top it off. A definite win in my book. 🍣 And thanks to the world’s best hubby for holding down the fort at home while we had a girls day! 🍨 Tomorrow I can’t use the phrase “but it’s Mother’s Day!” But I did put it to good use today!
Whew! 🦓 Who knew how much energy first grade boys have? Oh wait, I knew what I was signing up for. 🦁 I’m beat but totally worth the one on one time with my guy at the zoo! 🦒 These last couple weeks of school are wrapping up fast. Soaking it up before I delve back into the book!
Today was one of those days to put into the vault. 🍎 My baby is officially done with preschool and we move onto the next phase of life. *cue the tears* 🏫 In other news, we have made our final preschool payment! In other news, we will be swapping said payment to pay the orthodontist. 🦷 Yep, definitely embracing today and how today was his favorite day ever! #schoolsoutforsummer
I love the feel of a book in my hands. When I finished my manuscript the other day, it felt surreal. It was still hanging out on my computer. 📚 Today, I got to see it printed out, all 70,590 words in its glory! 📝 Now, it feels real and I’m ready to start editing this beast so I can share it with not only the world but my children! 📖 They are chomping at the bit to get their hands on it. I wrote this for them and all the kids out there wanting a little adventure to prove their independence.
One of the best things about being a writer is that I get to read all the time. • It’s not always about researching but for entertainment as well. • This Land of Stories series is not only great for middle grade readers but for adults as well. • I love jumping into a world of fairy tales and transport myself into the book. • Highly recommend this series by @chriscolfer if not for yourself but your inner child. • I love that it’s something my kids and I can enjoy together. *One of the major reasons for why I wrote my upcoming novel!*
