Until the cookies arrived and suddenly I felt better.

My sweet friend, neighbor and baker-extraordinaire Bridget, arrived with these:

Suddenly, I wanted to write seven more books.

It ended up being a really fun day shared with great friends!

My super supportive family was there to celebrate eat cookies.

I sold out of books and a bunch of t-shirts and jewelry to benefit the Mercy House!

Still don’t have a copy of my book? It’s being featured at the Bloom Book Club at (in)courage this week and THREE copies are being given away today! Or you can buy it here.


P.S. I hope you’ll join me on Monday at Grace Cafe (Blog Talk Radio) for a one hour radio interview.

P.S. S. Yes, I’m nervous. Like you had to ask.

:::You May Need This to Read My Book::: {Free Printable}

I put myself in time out the other day.

I needed it.

I was throwing a fit. I clenched my fists and even stomped my foot.

[Reason #207 I could never be on reality television. #208 We don't watch television]

It sort of made me want to read my own book, locked in the bathroom. Ha!

I’m getting ready for a Blog Book Tour (with lots of book giveaways) since my book comes out in just two shorts weeks!
