I know, I know – I'm a terrible blog to follow. Inconsistency has been plaguing me – honestly – since Oliver was born. As I look back I had a few successful runs, "Thirty Thursday," when we first moved to the metro...there have been times when this space has been filled with adventure. In general, however, it's been a daily reminder of how much I want to write, how little time I have to do it and how frustrated that makes me.
Summer is on it's crash course at our house. I don't even want next week to come. 4th of July is literally the end of the "summer honeymoon period" and suddenly we're on the down-slide towards "Back to School" and fall wardrobe planning. I can't have that yet. My skin is just beginning to bronze and Oliver is only beginning to gain confidence on the playground. I am 2 months away from both of my kids playing and me reading a book on the park bench...ok...maybe I'm fantasizing.
As our amazing garden grows like a weed (and the weeds grow like they're on crack) I am thankful for the anticipation of each bud, each climbing pumpkin vine and all the people who have split their perennials for me this year. I'm maximizing the sun in my yard and the "DEER FREE" zone I've acquired with a skillfully built garden fence.
Did you make it through those first three paragraphs? Here is what I meant to talk to you about today. I'm hiding it below some stuff you may not read because I'm a little embarrassed to have not shared it earlier. I don't have a book coming out in June. Memoir not happening. Publisher left in the dust. Lesson learned. Anticipation over. I have so much to share about this experience.
Here's my first advice to you. If you are holding a manuscript on your computer. If you have one in your head. Stick with me through July and I'll share my gained experience over the course of the next few posts. Don't click submit until you hear what I've got to say.
Sorry to have left you hanging. I was busy growing in every way but this. I leave you with Axel's success.
