Blah, blah, blah...

Hey, word.

Summer has been crazy crazy. We've been out of town off and on since school got out. I started revising a book, then went out of town, decided to revise a different book when I got back, then went out of town again, and finally decided that it just ain't happenin' this summer! Last summer I wrote a book in six weeks and this summer I can't even keep up with my house and kids. 

I was feeling bad about it every time we packed our bags to visit family or go camping...until I realized that this is what summer's about for my little kids. And they need me. And I need them. Let's face it, I will always be able to write, but my kids will not always be little. They won't always want to talk to me and they certainly won't need me to feed them, dress them, wash them, bandage their owies, etc. for the rest of their lives. As of right now, it's for the best. 

I can't wait to jump back into the writing world when school starts, but until then...keep it up, keep it real, and keep it goin'. 

Have a great summer!

Great Strides Walk 2014

Here are a few pictures from the Great Strides walk this year! I had a great time, met some awesome people, and loved being a part of it all!


On your marks, get set...GO!




This is my great friend, Sara. She's taught me so much about CF. It's because of her my book came to life!



This is our team captain, Regan Kate! She's the sweet girl in the middle. My whole story was inspired by her life and struggle to breathe every day. I hope they can find a cure soon!


I've learned so much about other people and have come to gain a better appreciation for what I have :)

Summer, summer, summer, summer

Think of the movie High School Musical 2 when they chant the word "summer" over and over again. That's what I'll be saying all morning since this is the last day of school for my kids! I'm not sure who's more excited, me or them. 

Exciting updates for June 4th. First, I'm almost done with another round of revisions on my current WIP. This is my year of revisions, and I can't wait to make some of my manuscripts shine!

Also, Leigh Covington interviewed me on her blog today. Check it out here.

Hopefully I'll get a post up about the Great Strides walk I participated in last weekend. And I also need to post about the writing conference I attended in April! So many exciting things. 

Thanks for stopping by. Be safe this summer and remember to read!
