I’m feeling super special today for a whole bunch of reasons.
1) We are homeowners again. My mom signed away our lives and fortune (hah!) last night, and Marcus and I are now proud homeowners of a brand new home in Annapolis. Though we still haven’t seen it in person, everything about it feels right, and we know that this we be the home that we raise our family in for years to come. We are very excited.
2) I am writing again. I’ve taken a bit of time off from web writing recently, and am back to editing my book. After a failed relationship with a potential editor, I’ve decided to edit my novel myself and with the help of some friends and family. It’s changed my timeline some, but I think I’ll be happier with the results this way. After all, it is my baby.
3) I’m almost done knitting Arwen. After months and months and months, the end is in sight. I expect to finish her up and be wearing her by the end of the week. I’ll blog about her and our relationship in more detail later this week…promise.
4) I’ve been nominated for a blog award by, not one, but two readers.
Other than returning the award to them (which I, of course, do!) I really want to send it to A Bright Future. I went to college with the author of this blog, and we lost touch over the years. But after finding her blog, I check in with it every single day. She is very real–going through some struggles, living, parenting, working, and being honest about it all. I love that about her. I get bummed when I check in and see that she hasn’t written anything new…seriously. I love her blog…no doubt about it.
So, today I’m feeling special, and I hope that you are, too!
