I can hardly believe it. Like always, there have been highs and lows. I started with the passing of my grandfather, and I’ve had the longest writing dry spell I’ve had in years. But, I’ve also had better health days and fun adventures with my family–we traveled to Colombia in the summer and I even managed to climb almost 650 steps up to the cima of El Peñol.
It was exhilarating. I want to go back.
And tucked between it all, I sold not one but two picture books that I’m so excited about and that I can’t wait to share with you!
This year, I’m thankful for it all–the good and bad, the laughs and tears. I’m thankful for family and for new opportunities. I’m thankful for the moments that make it all worthwhile.
