Things are heating up over here and I’ll just share a few of them:
- I contributed to a book Never Will I Ever (then I had Kids)
- Modernish Mommas is finally gaining some traction
- I’m writing for three other sites: Lose the Cape, UrbanMommies and FitNoire. It really helps me diversify my writing while keeping what I write here the same.
- I’m finishing a health and wellness devotional.
I’m hoping that many more positive updates are coming. What about you? What’s really going on in your life?
