  • Birthday Countdown Part 2

    Part 2 of My Birthday Countdown…What I have learned this year (and week!)   August 17: (#8) I love being able to combine work and family time. A princess party for an author’s book and a 3.5 year old princess equals a fun (even if exhausting) day. And to think, when I accepted this job […]
