Monday Mishmash

I wish I could say that I’ve been away from the blog lately because I’ve been crazy busy writing.  But alas, I have been too busy these two weeks to even write.

My middle brother got married!  The four of us are now all married and all have children, which is pretty cool.  Being a grown up isn’t always all that great; but being a grown up with grown up siblings with whom you are good friends is pretty awesome.

My cousin and her family stayed with us for a few days.  Good times were had by all.

My oldest brother and his family were here for a few days, and I got to meet my nine month old nephew that I hadn’t met yet.  My two and a half year old niece has grown up quite a bit since I last saw her; she actually talked to me and gave me hugs this time :-).  Seeing my brother and sister in law was really good too, though the time was short.

I’ve been planning and prepping for our upcoming family vacation.  Location and dates are not being publicized, but I promise to post pics when we get home.  I am excited to take our kids to a place they’ve never been before, and to surprise them with a few fun things while we are there.

Last but not least is that I’ve been prepping for the release of Lily’s Story!  One week from tomorrow is the official release date, and I am extremely excited for my readers to start receiving their pre-ordered copies! (If you haven’t pre-ordered yet, there’s still time!  You don’t want to miss out on the pre-order specials going on!)  I have a couple of release day surprises in store, so stay tuned for those!

Happy Monday to all, and I hope everyone had a great weekend!
