Good things happening all around :)

# 1- I sold DOWNPOUR!!!

Such an amazing achievement, the second of the two things on my bucket list. Downpour, the entire novel I wrote in less than a month after seeing a barista at Starbuck's giving a homeless man a cup of coffee. From there, I was possessed by these characters, Markus and Clinton, and a book was born. It should be out in November if I can get my edits done!

# 2- I saw this awesome "literary" tattoo today!

# 3- I'm trying my hand at knitting again... start praying now :D

# 4- I started reading "Vicious Deep" over a month and a half ago.

 It's a wonderful book, I just haven't had the time to read. I promise I will be finishing it soon! Can't wait to review it because it has been fun! Thank you again to Macy Beckett, the author of Sultry with a Twist, for loaning it to me!

# 5- And the best of all:

The first thing on my bucket list was to have a baby :D I need a new bucket list now!
(This also explains where I've been. Morning (see ALL EFFING DAY sickness is rough!)
We've been trying for three years, but I've wanted to be a mom since I knew that was an option when I was about 10 and started babysitting neighborhood kids. My husband and I were told that we couldn't have our own without a lot of interventions. We went to a few specialists and doctors. We decided to stop trying this spring and I started focusing on my health. I went gluten free in January and was working with  my doctor to get healthier. Apparently, it worked!

We're so excited and cannot wait to meet our little pirate-ninja baby in January!



    Imagine me jumping up and down wildly! (And because it's only seven in the morning, I'm not wearing a bra. It's not pretty, but such is my enthusiasm!)

    I'm so happy for you! Here's to a happy & healthy nine months, Mama!
