My friends, hello! I’m back.
For the past three-ish weeks, I’ve been writing my heart out on the proposal for a new book. It’s not a memoir, if you were curious, but that’s not to say it’s not personal and revealing, or that I won’t attempt another memoir someday. But like It Was Me All Along, this book has that years-in-the-making feel to it (I started taking notes for it forever ago). And maybe the best part is, I’m crazy about it. Crazy in that I love everything going into it, and crazy in a way where I’m consumed by the work so I lose track of time, and Daniel starts to worry. “…so you know the Bachelorette started already…right?”
After months of indecision, Daniel and I are finally getting somewhere with this wedding. And I guess the ‘somewhere’ part of it, was deciding to have a wedding at all. For a while, we thought about eloping. But then, when we chose not to, it was hard to find the right middle ground. Should it be small or ultra-small? Here or there? Will I miss anything if it’s not traditional? In the end, I think we found our answers. And it might be worth a whole wedding post.
Last week I went to the dermatologist to have my whole body checked for skin cancer–and two suspicious moles, in particular. All was clear on the skin cancer front, but I did manage to ask my dermatologist just shy of a hundred questions about skincare and anti-aging products. So now I’m curious; did you start using anti-aging products at a certain age…or do you use them at all? Any favorites?
