Sometimes it is necessary to disconnect in order to connect. And, this weekend I did just that. I restrained from checking any of my social media or other online accounts and simply lived in the moment. I visited my children in Kentucky. Only saw my son for a short time, but we all had a lovely dinner to celebrate my birthday which is this upcoming week. Then, it was girl time with my girl for the rest of the weekend.
I stayed Friday night through Sunday morning with my daughter and it is just what the doctor ordered. I know it's not easy on Mr. Reuel to have me gone, but I SO needed this time away. We talked, ate, shopped, had a few drinks, and simply enjoyed seeing each other. It was perfect.
We started our Saturday at a local coffee shop where I was able to have some of the treats that my daughter makes at work. She works for the bakery who supplies Heine Brothers' coffee. My daughter personally makes the rugelach and they are so darn good. Then, it was off to 'Build a Bear' where my daughter bought me my first ever. 'Louise is a starving artist who loves dragons and chai tea.' After we made our bears we spent the rest of the afternoon shopping at various locations. For once I didn't go crazy with the credit card, but I did come home with some new Funkos and other items.
I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to be heading down to Kentucky this weekend to see my kids. My daughter invited me for a girls' day to celebrate my birthday, and, of course, while I'm there I get to check on my son who just recently moved down near her. Not to mention, my new-ish son-in-law. It's still a bit strange to think of my daughter as a married woman.
I won't be writing much over the next couple of days, but be assured I am working on my next projects. I have a pretty aggressive schedule that I'm hoping to tackle this year so I can get more releases out to all of you. Speaking of releases... Have you checked out all of my current ones?

I am the worst blogger in the history of bloggers. LOL It has been almost an entire year since my last post. A lot has happened. My son graduated high school, my daughter graduated college and got married, my son moved out on his own, and I have released several stories. I'm super excited about all of the changes in my author life, too. I met the most amazing person ever, my critique partner, unbiological sister/twinsie, and business partner -- S. E. Isaac. It's strange how you can meet someone and immediately click. My husband and I were like that. My PA and I were like that. And, now S. E. and I. She has been instrumental in helping me to focus on my writing and my author business. I feel confident a lot of things I let fall through the cracks in the past, will no longer suffer the fate of the forgotten toys. I'm going to share some links below. Would love to have you follow me and my friends that I list below.
