In the spirit of celebration, I thought it would be fun to share the three things I'm personally celebrating this week--and then I have a fun giveaway for one lucky winner--because what's a celebration without gifts?!?!
Here are the three things I'm celebrating:
1. Sunday, March 29th marks the second anniversary of the date I signed with my literary agent, Mary Keeley! (Mary is also Jaime's agent.)
I wish I had a bumper stick that said: I ♡ My Agent. Mary and I have been a good pair. One of my love languages is Words of Affirmation, and she's wonderful at filling my love tank! Since signing with Mary, I've completed three novels and sold two novellas to Barbour Publishers. I'm excited to see what the coming year will hold for our partnership.

2. Sunday, March 29th is also special for another reason! My twin boys turn five!!
My husband and I have been blessed with four children. We have two girls (ages 10 & 8) and the two boys. It's hard to believe they'll be five in just a few days! Next fall they'll start school... This Sunday, we'll take them to a waterpark, and then Easter Sunday we'll have both sides of our family over for brunch, an egg hunt, and cake!

3. I completed my fourth full-length novel this week!
This is especially exciting because I wrote the last 32,000 words in six days! My husband owns a landscaping and lawn care company, so I try to write the bulk of my stories in the winter months when he's home full time. A couple weeks ago, the snow began to melt in this part of Minnesota, and I knew he'd be going back to work soon. We agreed to devote this past week to my writing, and I had a good four-five hours a day to get the story on the page, with a final push of eight hours on Saturday. The best part? I love this story. :)
Your Turn: I'd love to know what you're celebrating this week!
