Hello, friends! And happy July! My planned two weeks off from work social media turned into six, but I appreciate your patience as I enjoyed a much needed brain-break from Catechesis Books. .
During that time, @jessblanchardstudio
and I FINISHED book five and submitted the final print files. And let me tell you, it was down to the wire. My gracious editor let me alter parts of the text a mere four days before final submission 😬 but I know the book is better for it. .
My husband and I also enjoyed a few days away together for my birthday - just the two of us - in the greatest city on earth, NYC! What a delight to travel by train kid-free and eat dinner at a restaurant later than 5pm. 😂 I returned refreshed and so so ready to hug my babies. .
The rest of my "down" time has been spent working my two other jobs and trying to thoroughly enjoy summer freedoms with my kids - splash pads, zoo, kid's farms, children's museums, playgrounds, nature centers, pool, and the good, old-fashioned playdate with friends. .
Rest can be a challenge for me, trusting that things will carry on in my absence. Time away is a good reminder that God doesn't NEED me to do anything. Imagine my surprise to hop on to this account after weeks away to find my following has somehow grown! Silly me. I am definitely looking forward to being back online with you all though! .
