I did this to myself today…
Yes dear readers, THAT is a spray tan gone bad.
Very, very bad.
I asked for level 1, as in, the lightest possible spray tan. Not only did it go Puerto Rican on me, but it decided to put most of the spray on my face!
And here’s the kicker…
I’m going the Mom’s Night Out movie premier in L.A. on Tuesday. THIS TUESDAY.
Are you laughing yet? Every time my husband sees me he starts cracking up. My daughter said to me, “Well mom, you don’t have to worry about us calling you gray hair anymore, we’ll just call you orange face.”
Now for the good news: I washed my face and it seemed to take off most of the orange. I think it’s going to be alright…I think.
I’m really done posting now. No more for a good long while. K? K.
Alrighty friends, catch ya later!

Mmmm…sweet potato cake with my dear friend Logan who came to visit!
Most of you know that I have taken the year off blogging and public ministry. Today I thought I’d offer a little update, and then share with you two little happenings, if you will.
First, the update.
Time off has been WONDERFUL.
Glorious, I tell you.
I have been really enjoying my family, my home, my neighbors, and private writing.
But mostly, I have come to see this time as a time of centering. I needed to pretty much quit everything in order to get centered and clear. I’m only four months into my year off, but I can tell you that it is the best thing I could have done. No regrets!
If you feel like you’re going under, or you’re burned out, or you’re not able to give your kiddos the mama they need, I strongly urge you to consider stepping back and getting quiet. I know from experience it can take a long time just to get to a place where you can actually stop for awhile. There are jobs and commitments and on and on it goes. But if you can, or if you’re willing to ask the Lord to help you get to a less stressful place, a more unstuck, “I-want-to-enjoy-my-life-and-my-family-and-not-regret-my-life” place, it’s worth the time and sacrifice.
I am tickled with all the freedom I have right now. Bliss.
But I love writing, and I look forward to the day when I begin here again. 🙂
Okay, now for those announcements!
Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe is now an audio book! WOO HOO!
This means that if you’re the mama who can’t get a break to read, you can just listen to it while you do what you do!
