Back to Work, Book Update, Hybrid Publishing and a Kickstarter

I took a bit of a break from blogging and constant social media posting over the summer.

My son starts preschool … Continue reading Back to Work, Book Update, Hybrid Publishing and a Kickstarter

Dealing with Grief and a Four-Year-Old

What Happened to the Cereal Box Toy?

I got a little tingle of nostalgia this morning when I noticed our box of Froot Loops proclaimed it had a Spider-Man figure inside. Now that sugary morning cereal has reentered my life, I'd been wondering when the toys went away. I still recall the days of choosing my breakfast cereal based on what awesome … Continue reading What Happened to the Cereal Box Toy?

The Not-so-Baby Shark at Atlantic Beach

I love to walk over to the beach in the evenings, after most of the crowd has left and the sun is starting to go down. I usually find some sea glass and a shark tooth, if I'm lucky. Last night was a little different. I found more shark's teeth than ever, just this time … Continue reading The Not-so-Baby Shark at Atlantic Beach

Enjoying Life Offline

I haven't posted since last week so figured I'd pop on with a little update. I've just been enjoying life offline and soaking up some family time. I didn't plan ahead, so I didn't have anything scheduled, but I know the blog isn't going anywhere. That's the great thing about blogging...as long as you have … Continue reading Enjoying Life Offline
