10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week // Book Week

10 things that made me happy this week during an exciting week! // dreams-etc.com

  1. A fun weekend at The Palmer House Hotel with Ghost Stories Ink.
  2. Holding a book that includes a story that I wrote.
  3. A fluffy puppy. Little One’s hair is looking Cav-like just in time for the cold weather.
  4. Signed my first writing contract.
  5. Had an unexpected chance to ask Mitch Albom a few questions about The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto.
  6. Finding new ways to curl my hair. I’m loving the beachy waves look right now.
  7. Finishing two books I really enjoyed.
  8. Rain! Even though it was cold and there was a lot and I was out in it.
  9. A redirect on NaNo & a story that I’m really excited about.
  10. Getting business cards in a day! They’re about the quality that you’d expect, but I wasn’t thinking far enough ahead and wouldn’t have had them in time from my usual source.

    First of all, we bought the same blog layout- so fun!!! I always love seeing how people put different customizations in the same layout.

    That is so exciting that you were able to read a book with something you wrote!! When grad school ends, I have a huge list of books to catch up on that I haven’t been reading. Something that has been happy for me this week is that it ended up being a lot less fast paced than I was expecting. I had a lot of project deadlines and it went very smoothly!!

    I hope you add this to the positivity link up on my blog- it would be a perfect fit 🙂

    My favorite thing this week was starting my Christmas shopping. I’m very excited about Christmas and I have a few hand made things I”m going to start working on soon, that’ll be fun. 🙂

    That is truly a fantastic week! This is what the late night talk shows would call your best week ever!
    Congrats on the writing contract, on the book, on the conversation with Mr. Albom.
    All of it sounds awesome. Are you living in the Lego movie where everything is awesome? ?
    I hope this coming week ahead is even better for you, if that’s possible
