Weekend Inspiration

Going to Bootcamp

This.   This Saturday.   Happy Birthday to ME!

I’m on Amazon!!

It’s raining here, a perfect downpour while the babies sleep and I’m up writing a post that seems surreal… Today a wonderful friend (thanks Andrea) happened to check Amazon.com and see that my book, A Heart So┬áBroken, is listed there and ready for sale.
