My word for 2018 Is Persevere. I told my family and they responded with “are you preparing for a difficult year?” No, I’m not preparing for an overly difficult year, but I know that my goals will not be easily attained. I know that I’ll want to quit and convince myself it was a stupid goal and focus on something else. But I don’t want to give myself excuses. I want to Persevere. What’s your word for 2018?

I mean, I can remember my parents turning 30…forever ago. And now that’s me. I’ve been married… Keep Reading
Anyone who follows my blog and actually reads it knows that my favorite book is Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson. I mean, I slip it into at least 1/2 of my posts, if not more, right? It’s pretty much the perfect romance, so if you’re in the market, I highly recommend it. I just finished it again… for the 8th time. So I’m not going to review it again, but you can check out my past review HERE. I read Edenbrooke in… Keep Reading
Last weekend I went to the Storymakers Writing Conference, and let me just say, it was AWESOME. I love meeting new writers, I love meeting new mentors, and I love the classes. Really, I just love it all. Although, it’s quite the extroverted OVERLOAD for a very introverted person. It’s like socializing on steroids for me. Haha. But i survived and even had fun.
