thoughts & giveaway winner!
Thank you for entering my giveaway! The winner is ...
Hannah Rose! Let me know where you would like your copy sent, Hannah.
My brain has been absolutely fried lately. I'm a bit done in with lack of sleep combined with B's first birthday and getting the book published and available in varying formats. The Kindle edition is NOT working. For some reason the pictures are not showing up right now. We are working on fixing the problem ASAP.
Thank you so much for your comments on my desperate sleep post. The crib soother is helping some. I've been able to get longer stretches of sleep, which helps my mood so much.
I'm in a really strange place. I've achieved a dream - publishing a book - but the way it came about is not what I planned for my life. Obviously. I spoke with the owner of the bookstore where I used to work this morning. We talked briefly about how my life and career path has gone in a completely different direction than expected. And it's all because of one little girl's short life.
As I drove by the hospital where Charlotte died this morning I thought about how much it still hurts. Even after all this time. Even with a dream accomplished and my boy with his toes on the edge of toddlerhood sleeping quietly in the backseat it hurts. It hurts. It hurts. It hurts. Sending this book out into the world is really bittersweet. Thank you for supporting me and loving my Charlotte.
