You Suck E.Coli

Here is my pity party.

🎈

I have e.coli guys and it’s not fun, it’s terrible. I want to curl up and cry… oh wait I’ve already done that for three days straight.

This sucks.

Ok thank you for letting me get that out there.❤️

The Soundtrack to My Life

Have you ever heard a song and felt each note was a significant moment in your life?

That’s how I feel about the song, “Big Country” by Béla Fleck.

We played it at our wedding and every time I hear it, it resonates within me. Like a soundtrack to my life, images flash before my eyes. Beautiful, raw, agonizing, glorious moments flood me.

Do any of you feel that way about a song? You can comment below or write your own post where you can drop a video of the song. Either tag me or link to this post.❤️

Life Update: Happy Crazy Campers

Hi friends,

Miles and I decided we weren’t busy enough (haha) and we bought a 2003 camper. And she is a fixer upper!

We have big plans. Redo the sleep space, walls, floor, cushions, and curtains. Basically we are keeping the bones and the appliances.

Miles started demolishing the walls.

Big shout out to my crafty friend AJ who made the sign for us!

I’ll post more updates as we go!

Wish us luck!❤️

Writing Update: Pick Your Favorite

Hi friends,

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged anything about my writing endeavors.

I have four picture book manuscripts that I am going to start querying to agents.

For fun, could you please pick the project/pitch that is the most interesting to you? The book you would most likely pick up for yourself and the children in your life. Please answer in the comment section below.

A) Elsie Goes to Work

During summer break, Elsie goes to work with her mother at a greenhouse. One day, she sees the most beautiful rosebush and wants it for her own. One problem, she may have neglected the last plant her mother bought for her, and now her mother won’t buy her another. She strikes a deal with the owner of the greenhouse: if she helps for the day, she can have the rosebush. How hard can work be? The reward of a job-well-done smells sweet, and Elsie learns that hard work pays off in more ways than one.

B) Mrs. Irish

When Anna’s friend, Mrs. Irish falls ill, Anna must take charge by making the cure for her friend. Anna learns that her mysterious older friend is a witch, and her magic goes wacky when she is sick. Finding the ingredients proves difficult when Anna must deal with a cantankerous cat and rogue fairies that see an opportunity to wreak havoc. Mrs. Irish’s enchanted cottage has been turned upside-down and Anna must cure Mrs. Irish before her house crumbles around them.

C) Cinnamon’s Foal

Hayden and her friends await the arrival of a new baby foal at the stable where they ride. Everyone is surprised and saddened when the foals mother dies during the birth. The girls work together to make sure the new foal has excellent care. By helping the foal, the girls realize that they are healing themselves by caring for the baby who needs them.

D) Animal Diner

Miles learns at school that he can be anything. He knows that he is destined to be a great chef. Nothing can stand in his way. Miles realizes that it’s going to be hard to cook when he isn’t allowed to use the stove or that he can’t reach the mixing bowls. He isn’t even allowed to be in the kitchen without adult supervision. Miles reverts to making food in his backyard. Mud pies and worm spaghetti are fun to make, but Miles yearns for someone to appreciate his skill. Just when Miles’ dreams of becoming a chef begin to fry, a surprise dinner party gathers to enjoy the feast that Miles has carefully arranged.

(Yes, its a bit odd I used my husband’s name for a protagonist but it just fit!)

Have a great day everyone!
