Reading: Night Betrayed by Joss Ware
Listening to: Lullaby by Jewel
Making me smile: My tiny new bundle of joy!
I love new beginnings. I love the excitement and hope a new beginning brings, even when it’s mixed with that dash of fear of the unknown.
I love when I sit down to start writing a new story with wonderful new characters and an interesting premise motivating me to capture the story in words. Of course I always want to capture it perfectly and always fear I’ll never do the idea justice, never get the story quite right.

I truly love reading a brand new book – whether it’s by a new author or one of my favourites. I hope with each new beginning I’ll get a fabulous story with captivating characters and a wonderful happily ever after. I hope a fav author won’t disappoint and that a new author’s story will be so great I’ll have a new autobuy to add to my list.
Life is full of new beginnings: marriage, birth, divorce, new job, retirement, relocation, new house…the list goes on. No matter what the new beginning, you need to let the hope and excitement lead the way.
Last week I had the ultimate new beginning in my life – I welcomed my tiny new son into the world! Bub is doing amazing well (and is so incredibly cute…I’m biased, I know) and the new parents are negotiating the world of taking care of a newborn and interrupted sleep.

So, how about you? Any new beginnings (big or small) in your life lately?
