Hello, friends! I’ve been offline quite a lot these last couple of weeks (for happy reasons). End of the school year, out-of-town visitors, and my post book launch/tour need to plant my feet firmly at home have kept me away from screens and mostly outside. Lots of walking and gardening (this is a little vignette I added to one of the beds in my back yard). Most of all, I’ve been catching up with the people I love in person. It has been BLISSFUL and very much needed as I transition back into the regular rhythms of our family life.
I tend to be either/or when it comes to Internet breaks — either I’m ON or I’m OFF. And I never seem to plan for it — I just drop out of sight for a while. Great for my mental state; not so great for my inbox! But I’m back now, in my relaxed summer way, and I’m so happy to greet many new readers, and check out the #parenthacks you’ve been posting.
I’ll get back to hack-sharing on Instagram and Facebook with a special focus on DADS this week, and I’ve also got some book updates for you (including an upcoming event in LA this summer), which I’ll detail shortly. For now, I just wanted to say hi, thank you for hanging here with me and wish you a happy start to your summer. I hope you are finding some sunny & blissful moments of your own.
