Can I just say that this month was a rush of emotions, good and bad, ecstatic to frantic, super stressed to blissfully peaceful. The last nine days were the biggest mix of emotion but really this whole month has flipped me out and given me ideas for posts for weeks to come! Here we go in mostly chronological order... try to keep up, I barely did!

End of the month, that means it's picture time again. This month wasn't a race around Washington but it was full and busy nonetheless. The pictures are in no particular order because I can't figure out how to organize them but they're here.
I would have to say the highlights of the month were helping at Kinderfest in Leavenworth with my church and running the Oso Strong 5K. I loved quizzing the little kiddos on American History... you know America is 238, right? Most of them didn't. It is a joy and honor to help instill a little bit of American pride into the younger generation. And the race, what can I say about it? The best, most organized race I've ever been part of and it was put together by wonderful people I proudly call friends and and supports their community in one of its hardest times. I can't help it I have to say it... I'm Oso Proud of the community support I saw!
I promised a month of pictures so here it is. Best news of the month, the dream became reality. I signed! I signed into a contract with Booktrope for both "Waiting on Justin" and "11 Lives of Evelynne." I'm so excited for this next step in my writing journey and can't wait for it to begin! I am beyond happy but it feels like a dream! We're still looking at a 2014 publication though.
June was one crazy, wonderful, busy month to say the least. I feel like there was hardly a moment to catch my breath. It was truly one of the best and worst months of my life. So much good, and so much stress and sadness too. I know I wasn't always at my best but I gave it a good try. Nope, my life is not, nor will it ever be perfect but it is good, and I am on cloud nine with the writing developments. I couldn't ask to live in a better place than Leavenworth (and I'll add Wenatchee since I spend so much time there too). I love my home state of Washington and though I never intended to travel it from end-to-end last month I guess I did and I was impressed once again at the beauty of the area I live. The Cascades, the plateaus, even the coastal gray, it is all so special to me. Oso you make me proud to be a Washingtonian, stay strong!
