Autumn is filled with color and I love driving country roads where the trees are filled with crimson, gold, and autumn hues.
So much has changed along with the scenery. This past year I became the mother in law of a darling girl that married our eldest son, a grandmother of the cutest little baby girl you ever did see, and just learned I'm to be a grandma again! There is lots of excitement happening up here on the mountain!
I also started going back to school, and I'm loving the opportunity to expand my mind and writing skills. it's wonderful to get to explore the world from a student point of view again. I've always been passionate about learning so this has been great fun.
Of course, with all these changes, I'm also still writing. It's been an amazing year with Good Dog Aggie, receiving the Maryland Blue Crab Award, and Aggie the Brave becoming an Oregon Spirit Award Honor Book. I look back and I am just so amazed at this journey, and am so, so grateful for my writing life.
Wishing Everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
Take pleasure in the words and worlds all around you.
