I’ll be teaching at this FREE writing workshop in Ephraim on Saturday. Check out the amazing presenters and classes here.
I have been missing from the blog world for quite some time. Life is CRAZY-hectic around here. I’ve always said we function in Controlled Chaos. That statement grows truer and truer over time. Anyway, thought I’d share one of the things we’ve been doing.
