This week is SOOO full for me, so I’m not sure how much blogging is going to happen.
First – Angela from Good Morning Girls was here in Ohio (from Texas) this weekend – so we had to have a bloggy meet-up Saturday night at my house. Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen and Clare from Peak 313 stopped by! And this is how sweet Angela is –she flew in from Texas with her three little ones in tow, then cooked up a meal for Janelle (whose husband recently had surgery and could use a meal) and brought it to our get together! I love how this picture captures the joy of giving and receving (this is a sincere photo – they weren’t posing)! Janelle, who is always cooking for someone was so blessed. This is an awesome picture of how sisters in Christ are meant to love in the family of God.
Then, I got my edits back from Thomas Nelson last week and they are due back this week. There are not too many changes…but I do have one chapter I have to completely re-write because it was almost entirely struck out. It’s the chapter about my mom! That surprised me because I was thinking that was a chapter you all might enjoy…but I think it’s my style of writing that was the problem. I went into autobiographical mode – so I’m gonna try to go with less stories and come at it from a different angle, while still sharing all that I’ve learned from her. So that is due back this week to the editors.
Then… the biggest part of my coming week will be on Wednesday morning when I leave for 5 days for a blogging conference called Allume (formly named Relevant). I am SO excited to get there and see all of my blogging friends. It is always an amazing ride there…actually it was last year at this conference when I met my agent to discuss the Reality Show I was considering doing. What was I thinking? lol! Anyhow…I came home planning to write a book instead of doing a show – good plan right? :)
I expect this conference to be a little more low key for me. This is my first conference to attend in years – that I don’t have to speak. It’s a bit of a relief to get to go and simply get filled up. I am going to be the Emcee during Saturday’s lunch for a Marriage Discussion with some awesome bloggers and that’s it. I am thankful for the minor role.
Have a great week! I will be posting a re-post tomorrow from last year’s conference and what I learned and the link-up will be up on Wednesday.
I can’t wait to share my pictures from the conference with you later this week!
