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!
