Hello everyone! You don’t usually see a Monday post from me, do you? Well, this was supposed to be done on Saturday, but I just had the most smash-bang busiest busy weekend anyway, so that did not work out.
So, here is my belated laundry list of recent happenings. I am also going to re-post some of the top posts of the month of January. Can you believe it’s February? Hallelujah – one month closer to spring! PA is having a brutal winter, very cold and snowy, and our North Carolina beach honeymoon plans are sounding very nice right now.
I bought my wedding dress on Saturday! This is the only peek you will likely see until June, so revel in it.
We got our first feedback for drafts of the upcoming Book We Are Publishing on Friday. It was encouraging and challenging. I have a lot of writing to do, but I am excited. The book is supposed to be a collection of creative nonfiction short stories about someone we know or knew. Unfortunately, creative nonfiction is not my strong suit. My story came out more creative than nonfiction, but this was only the rough draft. I take great comfort in that. Stay tuned for progress!
Now, the fun part. Whether you are new to my blog or have reading for quite some time, let me just say that I am beyond blessed and blown away that I have such a number of faithful readers. When I started blogging regularly, just a few months ago, I wanted my words to reach and resonate with people. I think all writers want that. But you know, writing can be scary. It can be hard to communicate your thoughts and feelings with the fear that people won’t like them, think they’re stupid, or even worse, never see them at all.
So I say a hearty thank you for reading my blog! It means so much to me and encourages me to keep writing. I’ve had great feedback from so many of you, and I am thankful for the chance to connect with people I would have otherwise never know. Thank you for that opportunity.
I also want to re-share some of my top posts from January in case you happened to miss them (or just wanna read them again… that’s okay with me :o). In Real, I recounted the story of how I got engaged and what a doofus I was. You don’t want to miss that. Rambles of a College Student was a big hit, which I don’t fully understand because it was just that. Maybe that’s why. Anyhoo.
Finally, check out I Read Harry Potter (and I didn’t tell my mom). This is to date the biggest post on my blog, which is so exciting! In this post I give my thoughts on the great debate between lovers and haters of the Harry Potter series and what my opinion as a Christian is on the matter. It could take you by surprise, and I am quite funny, so you should check it out! 😉
Well that’s it for today folks. Lunch is in a bit, and heaven forbid I miss that!
Stay frosty my friends!
