I haven’t been updating my blog lately. Heck, I’ve been pretty much MIA since November. But I have a really good reason. Actually, reason-s. The first being, I’m pregnant! Yay! So, a lot of my energy has been expelled just trying to get through my daily routine, working for my real estate team, handling the social media for the real estate academy, and getting through the holidays. It’s been a complete whirlwind of nausea, extreme hunger, and fatigue. I knew it was going to be a struggle, but this time around I have my 2 year-old daughter and she adds a whole new level to the experience. And, seriously, the struggle without caffeine is real. My production levels have dropped considerably since I had to give up coffee. Oh, and I keep having dreams about drinking. I don’t drink much when I’m not pregnant, but I’m having dreams about drinking at least once a week like it was my #1 hobby. What’s up with that?

The second reason is that every year I volunteer to do the social media marketing for The Dolphin Dip which happens every January 1st in Surf City, NC. It was a big success this year. We had well over 5,000 people and raised a large amount of money and awareness for Autism Support and Programs and Share the Table. Both fulfill very important roles in Pender County, and I hope that residents continue to send support their way. Every year, I wish I could put more time and work towards The Dolphin Dip, because it does such good, but it happens so quickly that it seems like there’s just never enough time to do it justice.

Finally, pre-orders for Quintina are still happening through the crowdfunding campaign on my website. There’s only 14 days left, so make sure that you pre-order NOW. If I don’t reach my goal, it will be a long time before I get Quintina published. So, please share. Let’s make this happen!

So, as a result, my blog has been neglected. Now that the holidays are over, I’m working back into it. This is the first step!
