Hello Spring!


Happy Spring!

I know that saying that might feel more like wishful thinking than a true sentiment.

In the span of a few weeks, our lives have changed to the point of being unrecognizable.  At least, mine has.


I haven't seen my extended family in nearly two weeks, my husband and children are home from work and school indefinitely and instead of getting ready for my signings in Nashville and Chicago, I'm preparing for months of social distancing.


Thank GOODNESS for the internet, right?


I'm old enough to remember life without it and I can't imagine what I'd do.

I'm so grateful that for the most part, we can carry on as we always have - talking about books, and life and getting lost in the stories we all love so much.

I'm looking at all of the silver linings this week has brought.  Mainly that I'm spending more time with my husband than I have in years. 

We stayed up until 3am this morning looking at pictures from our wedding and laughing until we cried about the crazy days leading up to it. (I'll tell you all about it one day!!).


My kids are being incredibly mature, helpful and brave. They haven't complained once and if they're fighting, they're keeping it to themselves! My youngest lost a baby tooth this week - his 4th! 

We made a big deal of it, because I've decided that we're going to make a big deal out of everything.  Every single day that we're healthy and together is one big old silver lining in my opinion! I'd love to hear some of yours!


Let's keep each other lifted by sharing those "sun breaking through the clouds" moments.

I can't wait to read yours.
