I hate roller coasters. I can’t stand that feeling of anticipation before the big drop. You know that moment when you’re teetering on the edge of the drop and you have no idea what’s ahead of you? And then you drop and for a moment you’re not sure if anything will catch you or if you’ll keep falling. I’m not even a fan of the Elmo Coaster because honestly, it’s so short it just makes me dizzy.
But today, on the twelfth of August, I feel like I’m on a ride. I made myself get on this big coaster called life. I’m sure it will turn me upside down and inside out but I also have a feeling I’ll have a smile after the first drop.
My new book, The New Ever After, is here. It’s here for you to read and love. It’s a book about life and some of the struggles that face moms…all moms. We all feel pressures from different things. Some of us work, some stay at home. Some have one child others have five. Some of us count every calorie and others eat every last bite of the chocolate cake. But we all have love and sometimes love makes us crazy and makes us do crazy things.
My editor and I have worked harder than I could have ever imagined to bring you this book. I’ve written. She’s dissected. We’ve spent countless summer hours working for towards this day and it’s scary to hand something over to the world. Something that you’ve worked so hard on. But that’s the ride I’ve chosen to get on.
My new book is about life. It’s about friends. It’s about being a mom and not always being perfect. It’s about love. And it’s about living life to the fullest because you never know when it’s going to disappear….
