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.
Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday, Dear BLOG, Happy Birthday to you!
Today is my blog’s very first birthday! I can’t believe it! This experience has been so amazing. April 13, 2015, I began this little blog called The Memoirs of a Housewife. Had you told me that in exactly one year I would be boarding a plane to go out West for a book tour for a book I wrote and I published, I would have thought you were being overly optimistic. Yet, here I am at 2:00 getting ready to head to the airport to do just that!
I am so thrilled I listened to my true core self about my desires and wants in this life instead of listening to my self-doubt and fears. We only have this one life. This isn’t a “practice life”. We don’t get any do-overs.
I feel so amazed that it has been a year! Many more to come as I continue to fall further in love with my husband and my Studious, Clever, Dapper and Spicy. Much more self-discovery and self-enhancement is coming your way. Life is happening here and it is a blessing. I am thankful for it all.
I am reminded of these smart words from Karen Lamb that I thought to myself one year ago today when I was nervous and hesitant to hit the “Publish” button on this blog for the first time. “A year from now you will wish you had started today.”
Well, I hit “Publish” and now a year later, I am so grateful to have no regrets or wasted time. Get on with your getting on, people. Life is happening here. It is a blessing for sure!
I’ll check in from the Wild West Book Tour! XOXO
