I am still here. I write this as a reminder to myself even more than a notification to my readers.
I have been writing so much these last few months, just not blogging. I have missed this.
I find myself thinking of this blog often. I think,
“What do I want to write?”
“What is there to say?”
“Do people really want to hear a housewife’s take on kids and married life?”
“Do I really want to talk about kids and married life?”
“Should I just post works here? Try to get feedback?”
Lots of questions. And with full disclosure, I didn’t come to any definitive conclusions.
With the exception of this: I want to write and I want to write here.
I want to write about whatever I want. This blog doesn’t need to fit under an umbrella that only touches on certain topics. It can be all encompassing. I have no control over who reads, who shares, who cares. But that isn’t why writing has ever mattered to me. Writing has been my lifeline since I was a child. When I was 7 and used writing to help me grapple through my father’s death and throughout my life going through every other hardship and joy. Writing is home.
So here it goes. Continuing the act of saving myself. Using my God-given talent to spend time with myself…and hopefully you all as well.
My word for 2018 is Wonder. My word I pick is always intentional and thoughtful. I try my best to map out the year I want to have, the year I envision and then I set out to pick the word that will best help me stay my course.

I want to see the world through a different lens, perhaps a psychedelic one. I want to see the good in all. I want to feel that glimmer of extraordinary in everything. I want to make intentional choices for myself that bring me wondrous things. I want to inspire others to seek their own wonders. That was my plan. It most certainly still is.
But somehow, it is nearly March. How is that possible? Is anyone else shocked by this?
I feel in times such as these, when we have fabulous notions and ideas but we let time slip by (or rather it squeaks by on its own), the best plan of action is a PLAN OF ACTION! A purposeful intention that is also a regimented intention.
I vow to check in here each week, we’ll say Wednesdays- I call them:
When I write this little blog of mine, in my little space on the internet- I will report to you the wonder I have seen, felt, tasted and discovered. I challenge you all to go find wonderful things as well.
Hey there! Lots of exciting things are happening as we get ready for SUMMER! My blog is going to get some much needed attention and posts so I hope you are ready! Many fun activities for the kiddos that I will be sharing, some updates on me and my weight loss/gain journey, some information on the planner I have been using and how it is helping me organize our family of 6 and of course, updates on the book and its tour and special launches! I am also looking to have some guest bloggers/writers on here for you guys so if you have a great story to tell or a message you want to get out, send me a comment and we will try to work something out!
Today I wanted to just check in real fast to share some exciting news! No Cheese Please is on SALE from today until June 30th!!! This is super exciting and is happening to make room for… wait for it… the launch of No Cheese Please in PAPERBACK being released in July!!! I cannot begin to tell you how thrilled I am to be sharing this news today!
Hopefully you will all act fast to get your hardback copy while it is being offered at this special rate. Please note there is some issue with Amazon shipping and it the combining of shipping is not working. If you want more than one copy (and I hope you will), feel free to go ahead and purchase on Amazon and I will refund you the shipping. 🙂 Or of course, you can always email your questions and orders direct to DarnWritePublications@gmail.com.
The sale price for the hard back is $17.00 and will be good for June only. Then it will return to its original cost.
