Life Lately: Volume 115

Happy Friday! I am starting to really feel intense emotions over my book launch which is four days from today. Next Tuesday, the world will see it and while I’m so excited to share it, it feels almost like letting your kid go out into the real world for the first time. I can’t explain why I’m nervous but I just am! When you put your entire heart and soul into a project, it just hits different.

I’m also working hard to secure more dates and locations for my book tour with Maine and possibly the Bay Area on my list! Check out all of my booked events including signings, meet and greets, and more.  I hope to meet many of you in the coming weeks.

This weekend I’m trying to focus only on my family and friends to take my mind off of the anticipation. We are hitting the circus, a birthday party (or two), touch-a-truck, and more.

If you need a fun Mother’s Day gift idea, if you buy my Garden Grown Chappywrap blanket this weekend, we will send you a free copy of my book! And if you need more Mother’s Day gift ideas, be sure to check out my gift guide.

Have a great weekend!
