"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."
 ~Sir Winston Churchill

This has been a long time coming. I wrote three books, published them, and then disappeared. Well, sort of disappeared. I became something greater than a writer. I became a mother. For three and a half years I have loved and nurtured a small human being. She is bright, beautiful, and teaches me more about life every day. I love her more than anything else in this world and even though I missed writing full time I knew my place and new purpose in life was to be a constant source of guidance for my daughter. The time has come that she has entered preschool and so, I have time again to delve back into my second passion. 

Writing.

And oh how I have missed the feel of a keyboard under my fingertips. Yes, I dabbled with some paragraphs here and there over the last three years, but time always escaped me. My ideas and characters were pushed to a corner in my mind and told to sit patiently and wait for the right time. The time is finally right. The ideas that were jotted down and stuffed in notebooks have been pulled out and dusted off. I am working on two novels. One (secretly already in it's second draft) is a contemporary YA. The other is a fantasy my mind has created into a twisted version of Sleeping Beauty. 

I am excited. 

So happy to be writing. Enthralled to have the time I can dedicate just for my books and muses. I have missed this part of my life so much. Welcome back, me. Welcome back. 

I will be posting here more as well, now that I have time. I missed you guys.

XOXO

Birthday Bliss

I turned thirty seven this past weekend (cringe), but I had a blast doing it!

My husband and daughter made me cards (I prefer these versus bought cards). I love that they take the time to make a card each year, it makes me feel extra special. Although, this year kiddo's car was a "flat card", her words. She didn't want to fold the artwork. I totally get you, mini me.

Saturday I had a kid free day with a friend and we spent hours laughing and thrift shopping. I found some great treasures and even a pair of bright flowery running shorts. I will take a picture of said shorts as they embarrassed my friend and she vowed NOT to be seen running with me at our next race if I wore them. I took that as a compliment and a challenge. =P Later that night hubby and kiddo took me to dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (they aren't open on Sundays).

Sunday I finally checked out one of those bar/painting shops. Five girlfriends and I drank, laughed, painted and had a great tim…

#Writemotivation Week 1 Update

It is that time again! I missed March =(, but I am back with a vengeance for May! Here are my goals for this month:


Spring Break 2017

Kiddo is only in preschool, but their preschool still had spring break. The teachers needed I break and I can totally respect that. Here are some pictures of our week:

Day One:
Made a homemade chalkboard for outside. I decided on a smaller piece of wood that I could move in and out of the garage and not have to worry about leaving it out all year and deal with weather damage. So far it has been  a huge success but a major pain in the butt to clean. I little cleaning research and I will be golden.

Day 2:
Working in the garden. Kiddo and I love working in the garden and she even planted her own daisies that she is now responsible for. She loves going out to check on them every day (we planted seeds so she is eagerly waiting for them to sprout) and when it is watering day it's sheer bliss for her!


Day 3:
Dance Class (no photos because they are pretty strict about that at her dance studio) and after lunch some good playtime at the park!

Day 4:
We must have partied too hard the first …
