Summer Updates!

Can you tell time got away from me? I was praying for the end of May (in my last post) and somehow I manage to find myself already in July! As they say, time flies!

The last month has been filled with packing/unpacking from our camping trip, daily swim lessons for three at-first-timid swimmers, my daughters annual ballet recital followed by her very first dance compani audition (I think she made it!), a sudden urge to purge our home of all baby gear, followed by a massive garage sale and then major heartache (on my part) once all my baby stuff was gone, two birthday parties, constant time spent on the boat/lake, a zip-lining trip...and a partridge in a pear tree.

Needless to say, we've been going constantly since my kids got out of school! My house is a disaster and summer doesn't feel like much of a "vacation" but hey, we're having a good time. :)

The reason I'm popping in today is to congratulate my sweet friend, Keli Gwyn on the release of her very first book! (Which took place a few days ago on July 1st!) A Bride Opens Shop in El Dorado is at the top of my to-be-read pile. Actually, I keep picking up other books, reading a page, and then putting them down because I should be receiving my copy of Keli's book in the mail any second now. And that particular story has priority over the towering stack on my nightstand. 

Keli is a delightful person and a brilliant writer! Her book has already received many stellar reviews, and I can't wait to add mine to the pile. I highly recommend getting yourself to the nearest bookstore and picking up a copy. Or if you've progressed passed bookstores, click over to Amazon (or one of the many other book buying options) and grab a copy there.

You can be sure I'll be raving about this book again once it arrives! Actually, I'm off to check my mailbox! :)

Happy 4th of July everyone!


  1. Sounds like you're having a great time this summer! Great to hear how you're doing!

  2. What a fun summer, Lacie. Love hearing about all the neat things you're doing with your family. These are memory-making years, and I'm glad you're filling them to the brim with awesome activities.

    Thanks for the kind words about my book. I hope it shows up soon. At least it didn't have to travel far. =)

  3. Awesome, summer, Lace! I'm excited about Keli's book too! :)


I'd love to hear your thoughts too!
