“Always remember to fall asleep with a dream and wake up with a purpose.”
Thank you all so very much for your support, encouragement, and sweet words on my last post. It’s appreciated more than I can say, and truly does help. You all are the best, and I <3 you — so much so, in fact, that I'm going to subject you to more bunny pictures. Hee. Apologies if you've already seen some of these on Instagram and Twitter. My furry BFF has taken over my iPod these days, but I do manage to snap a few other photos, too.
Hmm, maybe I’ll give this writing thing a try. It always looks like fun when Ma does it. Perhaps a book series about a bunny?
Jasper’s getting to be a pro at the selfie.
Who needs turkey on Thanksgiving when you can have hot chocolate instead?
I got a Jamberry gift certificate for my birthday and ordered some awesome designs. First time using it and I’m already in love.
Pondering the great, wide world.
It’s always a joy to visit with Nancy. Of all the GH fan events, hers are among my very favorites.
Music is power. Music is hope. Music is inspiration. Grateful for these songs which speak to my soul and remind it to keep on trying.
And a quick video, because what’s cuter than a bunny binky?

Meet Jasper Jellybean Jax, everyone! Tomorrow marks his two week “bunniversary,” but truly, it feels like he’s been part of the family for so much longer. He’s sweet and snuggly, but also so energetic, goofy, and outgoing (most of the pictures I’ve taken end up as a blur because he’s hopping and twisting so much!). I’m so glad to have adopted him, and I adore watching him explore his new home. What a love he is!

Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life.”

Report from the post-MRI appointment with my ENT. So, so grateful.
Free fudge brownie cream ice to celebrate the first day of spring? Don’t mind if I do.
And more snow to celebrate the sixth day of spring? Hey, at this point, why not? Let’s go for the record books!
This is what it looks like when I plan out the final ten chapters of my WIP ahead of time …
… and this is what it looks like when ideas explode into starbursts in the moment. Four and a half chapters to go!

M&G with General Hospital’s Tyler Christopher and John J. York!
“Sandy Castle” in Point Pleasant, to raise money for Hurricane Sandy relief.
Such a lovely start to fall!
Why hello there, friend.
My mom surprised me with a plaque that has the quote which inspired SOT. Love, love, love.
What’s up with y’all lately?
“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”
… can I go back now?
“Your story matters. Tell it.”
Like Aly, I have been spending a lot of time lately organizing and de-cluttering. If I’m not sitting down at my desk to revise, chances are I’m cleaning or sorting or rearranging. There’s nothing like revamping a room to give you a fresh perspective – that’s what HGTV tells us and I must agree. Part of my recent redesign includes hanging up and displaying a plethora of inspirational plaques that I’ve bought over the past few years. Here’s a sampling:
As you can see, most of my wall hangings are centered around writing, the seashore, and the beauty of dreaming big. How about you? Anyone else a quote and plaque fanatic like I am?
