Fresh New Blog

Welcome to my new blog. It's probably no surprise that I find the written word precious. I've journaled for my children since before they were born. I always inscribe each journal before I write the first entry.My handwriting can be scribbly at times or really legible, but like the words on the page, the handwriting is part of the legacy.  It takes me several years to fill a book, and when they are full, I store them in a safe. 

Today I'm creating a different legacy. I can't say where it'll lead or what is next. I wrote First Spring for my youngest son. On a whim I decided to submit it for publication ten years later and luckily, Guardian Angels Publishing offered me a contract. Dylan is looking forward to his chance to co-autograph print copies with me. I know it's going to be a memorable journey for both of us.

Thank you for sharing it with me. I look forward to getting to know you better. Please introduce yourself and tell me what you love about the written word.

  2. Jay! Thank you for following me. It's a pleasure.

  3. Hey Margie! Congrats on the blog. May God bless your endeavor and enrich your life!

  4. Thanks, Jack! I know this is going to be fun. Heck, you get to play with crayons and small words all day!

  5. Awesome news on the book and the new blog. You're such a great mom to journal for the kids. I don't think either of my girls even has a baby book.

    Wishing you the best,


  6. Thanks, Janet and Cheryl. The blog is a tricky issue with pen names! Yikes. Working hard to make this work well. As for the journaling, well, I'm about the words. Pictures...not so much! They have photos in bags unfortunately!

  7. Margie,
    Congratulations on this newest publication. I hope you sell a zillion billion copies. Have a wonderful holiday season.

  8. Thank you, Norm. You are so sweet to come over and wish me luck.

    Blessings on your holiday and your life. You are a great friend.
