Wow, it's been a long time since I've written. I hope you all had a great summer and did something fun and exciting and hopefully donated some time to a volunteer cause. Let me know if you did, I'd love to hear it!
I finished a book of mine that's coming out in January (more on that later, but it relates to the blog!) and of course did my mom duties to my three kids. My older daughter and son volunteered for their local church to help out at the camp with the little ones. It's nice seeing them start to understand the importance of volunteering. We're working on more things they can do. I know my older daughter is anxious to volunteer at an animal shelter when she's old enough.
I'll be back with more news about your favorite celebrities are doing. I have an article on Doug Christie coming very soon (it was supposed to run a few months ago, for those of you who are keeping tabs you didn't miss it!). I'll have some other news more organizations that need our help as well. If you know of something that a celeb is doing, let me know, okay?!
It's great to be back!
So what's been going on so far?
