Hello from Seattle!
My last newsletter asked for recipes for my next release and the response was overwhelming! Thank you very much for all of your family recipes. I can’t use that many in the book itself, but will probably put a section in the back of all the recipes I received.
As I’m preparing to send Ella off to college in August and Emerson is about to finish her first year of high school, I’ve been thinking about seasons. Soon, Cliff and I will have an empty nest and the next part of our adventures as a couple will begin. So much of my identity is wrapped up in being a mother and stepmother. I can remember like it was yesterday when I was the mother of babies and now they’re almost fully grown women. It’s hard for me to understand how time went so quickly. I know I’m not the only mother who has felt this way.
Speaking of empty nests, Cliff and I are planning on moving out of Seattle once Emerson graduates from high school. We’re currently searching for our next place to live. We have some places in mind and will be taking some trips this year to visit them and whittle down our list. On April 24th we’re leaving for a two-week trip around the Pacific Northwest. I’ll keep you posted on what we see! If you’re interested in photos and updates of our trip, please follow me on Facebook or sign up for my newsletter here.
I have a super fun announcement! Moonstone, my psychic in the Blue Mountain Series, is going to have her very own advice column. You can send a note to: email@example.com to ask her a question! She’ll do her best to answer each one and she may include some letters in future newsletters or blog posts.
Have a wonderful few weeks. Much love to you and yours!
