In the wise words of Thomas Carlyle…
Rest is a fine medicine.
Since I started blogging all the way back in 2009, I never took such a long, extended break as I did these past two months. And let me tell you, it was good for my soul!
We did a lot of swimming. We did a lot of playing. We ate a lot of ice cream. I learned to cook some Congolese recipes. We took our first family vacation (yes, first one) to Adventureland wherein Brogan rode every single roller coaster, even the upside down one. WE PASSED COURT AND BECAME A FAMILY OF FOUR. But we are still waiting on various procedures and governmental steps before that joyous day when we can bring our daughter home and actually LIVE as a family of four. I edited a novel. I wrote a novel. I wrote a novella. I read some pretty fabulous fiction. And I was able to share the cover of my upcoming release with dear readers like you on Facebook.
Let’s kick this new blogging year off in style, shall we?
Who likes coffee?
Who likes free books?
Who likes really pretty book marks?
Because I have all three and I’m in the mood to give stuff away!
I have 5 prize packages up for grabs, all of which include a $5 Starbucks gift card, a copy of Meg Moseley’s latest (Gone South), and a copy of my latest (Wishing on Willows), and these really pretty book marks.
What have you been up to these past two months?
Curious about the new blogging schedule? I will be posting once a week, every Monday, about writing or books or Jesus or romance or adoption or….basically, whatever strikes my fancy. My hope is that whatever the topic may be, you will be blessed and entertained!
