Dear Diary: July 2015

Happy 35th birthday, Harry Potter! I hope all is well and your scar doesn’t hurt.

I’m feeling GOOD, friends. I am on vacation and OH, HOW I NEEDED IT. It feels like pouring restoration right into my body.

Here’s my July in a handful of pictures.

My basement is coming together, slowly but surely. Sneak peek:

I cut off A LOT of my hair (5-6 inches, I’d guess):

I finished writing the new scenes for my book and got them organized into chronological order:

july calendar 3

july calendar 2

I went on a retreat to Duluth. We watched Divergent and made Dauntless cake:

It was marvelous.

One more month till Truest is released.

It might be the vacation speaking, but I feel the best I have since, oh, March or April.

Tell me how you all are! What’s the best thing that happened to you in July??
