Today, I am thankful for…

A Week off from my day  job to teach some amazing, creative and energetic kids in my Young Writers’ Summer Studio (prompts & tips I used will be posted next week!)

AWESome list of helpful tips on setting goals for writers

The peace in my home since we banned all electronics until after dinnertime.

The beginnings of “clutter clear out” in my home – specifically my writing area.

Gorgeous cool weather and bright sunshine which added to a fun day lingering in Downtown Downers Grove with my two sons.
