It has been a hot minute since I have blogged and wrote about what is happening in my life. Like many of you, 2020 was definitely a year. Even the first part of 2021 has been an emotional roller coaster ride. When the pandemic hit, I told myself I would enter the my writing cave and write. Of course, that didn’t happen as nearly as I wanted. Instead, I have really focused on spending time with family, friends and loved ones. I learned to cook new dishes and to enjoy the kitchen. It has been an adventure. I wanted to make sure that my mental health was in check, and I made sure that I gave myself time to exercise and mediate. This helped tremendously!

The biggest change for me this past year was teaching online. Good news is that I survived, and I have to say it was because of my kick-ass students! They worked their butts off and we got through things together. I kept telling them to breathe and they kept reminding me to do the same.

For this month, I am really focusing on writing and working on my craft. I feel rusty, but I know that I can crave out the time to share my love for writing with everyone.

Until then, hope everyone is well and healthy!

Off to write I go!
