May 2014

Okay, seriously, I'm really kind of stunned that it's June. We're halfway through this new year. It kind of blows my mind! It also makes me sad because I haven't seen Macky (in person) since last year, and I don't want that to be the case anymore. Please continue to keep us in your prayers/thoughts as we struggle through this process.

Apart from that, it's been a great May! The sun's been coming out more and more, and my weekends are starting to fill up with fun outdoor activities. My best friend Bianca came into town to visit, and we watched some shows, did some cool things and ate all the yummy food. And of course, BEA happened! I loved that so many of my blogger friends, favorite authors and publishing contacts were all together in one space, and that I got to see them all and really just spend some time together.

I'm really looking forward to summer, as I'm sure everyone is! I'm hoping for some beach days, some park days and possibly some road trips. *crosses fingers* Happy June!
