It's summertime and a big time of transition for us. For the first time in several years, we are not doing year-round school and will have a traditional summer break. We have a new baby. And my sister/supernanny is leaving to go to grad school. What's a mom to do?!
Listening to this week's episode of the Hope*Writers podcast gave me some good ideas for how to spend this uncharted block of summer months with my five little monkeys home all the time.
First, to me, summer is a time to read. And read. And read some more! So that's what I'm going to do. For the summer, this blog will mostly be about what I'm reading and reviewing. I hope you get some good ideas for summer reading, and I'd love to hear what's on your to-read list!
Next, I want to improve my writing, and I've made some summertime goals to make this happen. I want to spend some time refining the purpose of this blog. I have a wishlist of technical blog improvements that are out of my skill set but just right for my sweet husband while he's on parental leave(!). And I want to read the books about writing that are patiently waiting on my Kindle.
Finally, I have a few big blogging projects for the fall that I want to work on during the summer. Most of this content will be adoption and motherhood related, so be sure to stick with me if you're interested! (You can check out my facebook page or subscribe in Feedly to stay connected.)
