We’ve had a lot of excitement around these parts since I last Life Lately’d. Last weekend we took a little day trip to Lake Compounce with Amalia and her pals and had the most fun day I’ve had in ages. I’ll share a full blog post about it next week, but it was one of those days that made me feel like a little kid again, rushing down water slides with a giant grin on my face.
We also had our town fireworks last night which is always super fun and slightly stressful because the beach is packed to the gills and it’s a late night for the kids. But definitely all worth it. I love a good firework. On the plus side, I didn’t drink so don’t have the killer hangover I had after last year’s fireworks show.
On the work front, I got to see first drafts of my book cover and seeing my name on a book was kind of mind-blowing. It made everything feel so real and exciting!
Have a great weekend!
