Happy Friday! Initially, I hadn't intended on posting today, but my son created something I promised I would share about. So I'm here to take a break from all things books and writing to be a proud mother.

Upcoming at The Lily Cafe #5

That was...a fast two weeks. At the start of my break, I thought I'd do a Google search for my blog. It's not something I do often, but, sometimes, I like to see what shows up.

The Lily Cafe Digest #16

Dear Readers, things are a bit bumpy for me and my family, at least until mid-June, but I'm trying my best to deal with it with as much grace and flexibility as I can.
