In Others’ Words: Dream Come True
So yesterday … yesterday was about a dream coming true.
I sat in my office with my daughter, CJ, and watched the 2016 Christy Awards, which were presented online this year, and my novel, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, won for the Contemporary Series category.
I’m still grinning about that moment … and still not believing it.
And what’s even more fun is right before that, my wonderful friend, Rachel Hauck, won a Christy award for her novel, The Wedding Chapel. And yes, I jumped up and down and yelled for her!
Some additional fun news: I also found out that Crazy Little Thing Called Love is an 2016 ACFW Carol Award finalist. And yes, I celebrated that news, too, and also HaPpY dAnCeD with my friends who are finalists! You can check out the list here.
Do you want to know how I ended my day?
With my car breaking down on the side of the road.
Yep, real life trumps writing life all the time. Today, my car got a new radiator. All fixed. And I’m still celebrating what happened yesterday … and looking forward to tomorrow … both the dreams coming true moments and the real life moments.
In Your Words: I hope your days are filled with dreams coming true … and family and friends who are there for you to celebrate you when they do. And I hope those same family and friends are there when reality shows up, because it always does. What dreams are you chasing? What realities are you facing?
