New and Exciting

I'm really not good at keeping secrets. I say, in all earnestness, "Go ahead and tell me. I won't tell anyone." But if it's a great, big, fun, exciting secret, it fizzes away inside of me till I feel like I'll pop if I don't tell.

Well, I've got two red hot secrets that I've been sitting on and the time has finally come that I can announce them to the world.

Number one, and most important, is that my daughter is expecting. She and her husband bought a house last year and with the nest all set up, she's ready to bring a little one into it. So look for a lag in blogging later this summer. And then some outright brag posts with lots of photos.

Number two, and very cool, is that I've been asked to be a contributing writer to a new online blogazine (did I just make that word up? I like the sound of it. Magazine + blog = blogazine), Simple Bites. Go ahead and check it out. Aimée, of Under The High Chair, is the editor and she's got great vision for this adventure. Simple Food, simplified life.





While you're there, check out my glamour shot as one of the contributors and see the elite company I'll be keeping. (I still suspect I got asked to join by mistake, but I'm not telling them!)

And be sure to visit Tuesday Feb 9th, as there's going to be a big grand opening give away! Free stuff! Woo hoo!

I'll let y'all know when I've got a new article up, but you'll probably want to subscribe to the RSS feed, so you can catch all the great tips, news, and conversations over there.

And tune in some time in August for the other big announcement - boy or girl!

Oooo, a grandbaby! How wonderful! According to my mom, it's about the best thing there is. What will you call yourself? Grandma? Nana? Grandmommy (that's what my mom goes by)?

Aimée said...

You're going to be the coolest grandmother. And August, what a great month to be born in. ;)

SO glad you are on board! Woot!!

Elle said...

Congrats!! Hard to know which is more exciting...although I'm such a baby freak that I would have to say grandbaby. But the blogazine is great, too. Your photo is glam. Maybe they will also ask you to write on the homeschooling blogazine? Will check it out tomorrow to see what you wrote :)
