Happy Birthday!

Frosty the Snowman said, "Happy Birthday!" when he came to life for the first time. I've always admired that choice of words ever since I was a kid. Call me crazy, but I'm also coming to life in this blog, in a manner of speaking. Seemed appropriate.

I'm also currently huddled under the blankets in my bed for two reasons, 1) it's freeeeezing in my house, and 2) my daughter is asleep in her crib next to my side of the bed and I don't want the glow from my phone to wake her. Glamorous this life I lead.

So a tad bit about me, I'm a wife and Mom of 2 awesome kids and a dog. Seriously, I won the lottery on that end. I'm giving my small ones cutesy nicknames on this blog, for obvious reasons. Robin is 4 and he's obsessed with superheros. Kitty is 2 and she loves babies and animals. Kitty was born with a very rare congenital syndrome known as Kabuki Syndrome. Please visit to learn more if you are curious. It's been a terribly challenging experience. But we love our strong girl and she amazes me daily. I'll probably speak more about her later.

I'm an avid reader. Currently I'm reading Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas. Highly recommend it!  I'm always looking for good books to read, so hit me up with your recs. I'm on Goodreads too. I enjoy painting, cooking, playing make believe, singing when no one is listening, daydreaming, and ... drum roll please... Writing! That will be the primary focus of this blog. Mostly my thoughts on all things writing, with some other randoms thrown in just to mix it up. Intrigue, I know. I'm a Bond villain for sure.

I'm in the process of writing my first novel. Well, I say "first" because it's one that I actually intend to have published. (eeep!) I have other unfinished works in my computer, but no one should probably ever read those. Ever. :) So I will probably talk about this WIP (work in progress) from time to time. It's too exciting not to share. The entire process has been eye opening, challenging, and absolutely a dream come true. I've been wanting to be published ever since I was young. I don't remember what age I decided to become an author. I just know I will be. Someday. Please? :)

If you've stuck around so far, then I think we might be friends. Stay tuned for more rambling thoughts from me.

And follow me on Twitter! @Bebravejules

I should think of some cool sign off saying or something. Now accepting ideas. For now, happy birthday!
