January and February in Review

2016 so far has been something of a whirlwind experience. I’m back working at Starbucks to help pay the bills, but the writing keeps rolling in. I’m married now and my wedding night went viral. My writing isn’t slowing down, if anything, I’m taking on more than I ever have before. It’s stressful but absolutely fantastic. Looking forward to a year of new and amazing experiences, hope you’ll be along with this wild and crazy ride with me!
