My 28th Birthday & Birthday Haul


On February 21, I celebrated my 28th birthday. It’s crazy to think how much time has gone by. Now, I don’t really go nuts with birthday celebrations. I like to keep things low key but try to still have fun and do a few things I enjoy doing. Continue reading

Birthday Girl & her Birthday Book Haul



It’s my party and I’ll…buy books if I want to! That’s right—it’s my birthday!

Writing: My newest published piece

Writers are constantly trying to update their portfolios, especially writers who hope to publish their first book one day.

It proves to publishers their material is good enough to be published as well as tells publishers that the writer may have an established readership that will ultimately help with the sales of their first book.  No matter how small a piece is, it is always good to keep up with writing and get content out there so people can start recognizing you. I’m happy to say that I got a small article published today and on my birthday too!
