A Good Year

I can't even put into words how happy I am there is an entire year between me and 2013. It was such a hard year for so many reasons. *shudders*

But 2014 was a huge blessing as it brought to life two dreams: becoming a published author, and becoming a mom!

This past holiday season was such a fun time, and I know it will just keep getting better!

So what does 2015 bring? No new book on the shelves (next year, though!), but I may or may not be already planning first birthday photos...

As for goals, getting in better shape is a yearly goal that never really happens. But I like what Miranda Hart says in her book Is it Just Me? when she jokes about writing a diet book. "Chapter one: Eat a bit less. Chapter two: Move about a bit more. The end."

Writing wise, I'd like to finish at least two of my WIPs this year. I've been very distracted with ALL THE SNUGGLING (and rightfully so), but I won't sell another book if I don't write one!

I also want to be more crafty (more artistically productive, not like, sneaky).

Do you have any goals? Do tell!

Here's to an amazing 2015, y'all!


  1. man, that baby is some cute. She just keeps getting cuter.
    My goals are some version of the same goals every year: read books, write books, lose weight.

  2. Those are the cutest pictures ever!! Love what you did with the Bumbo chair, too, to make it blend in. Very clever.

    So glad 2014 was better than the year before. Hope 2015 is even better!

    Happy writing!

  3. I love Layla pictures and her precious chubby cheeks!!!
    Ahem...switching back to adult voice.
    My goal is to write another book this year, rehab all injuries so I can finally pass my Junior Freestyle Test (at age 35...eeep). Age is just a product of the mind, right?
    I'd also like to do start some kind of creative writing program for youth in the Birmingham area. Maybe team up with a library. It's in the works.
    And read more fabulous books.

  4. that kid is a spitting image of you :)
