Aww…best Mother’s Day gift? The first year I held each one of these babies in my arms and could say I was FINALLY a Mom!
So, some of you may know, I love, love to read. Well, authors have lots of contests to win their books etc… One author whose books I love, sent out an announcement of a drawing that if picked, your name would be a minor character in her book. I GOT PICKED! But, instead of my name, I wanted to use Clarity’s name. I told her Clarity’s middle name too, (just in case) and sure enough, she said, “Great, I’ll work on writing in Clarity Faith!” I’m so pumped that my little girl will be a character in a book. Ok, a very, very, minor character, but STILL. So get ready to purchase this book everyone! Please! It’s title is “A Bride For Keeps” by Melissa Jagears. She’s a Christian Historical Fiction Author. http://melissajagears.com/
Here is what she wrote to me in an e-mail this morning.
(First e-mail) Shelley C. is the winner of my Character Naming Contest!
“I got just the perfect spot for you (or someone else’s name if you choose) in A Bride in Store where you’re being kind to my frazzled hero.
Congrats, how fun.”
Ok, so don’t forget, “A Bride in Store” due to release September 2014. You can pre-order now. heehee
I’m one happy momma! This character sounds just like my Clarity Faith, being kind to someone. Perfect!
Well, my sweet hubby has turned 40. I still see him as the handsome 24 year old I met who swept me off my feet and married me less than a year later. But, just to clarify (because I’m sure it’s crossed your mind) I’m way, way, waaaaaaaay younger! heehee So, don’t expect to see my 40th birthday celebration anytime soon.
Our little Buddy has really grown these past 2 1/2 years at his pre-school. The video is of his Spring Recital! Enjoy!
Elliott and I decided to change things this Christmas and instead of giving Clarity and Emeryk “things” we chose to “make a memory”. We’ve been “making memories” with grandparents as their gift for the last few years and why not continue the fun! And WOW did they have fun!!! Enjoy the video.
