The news ….

January 31, 2010

Many of you had asked what the news was…most of you thought we had some pregnancy news to share. Unfortunately, not! The good Lord knows how much I have been praying for this to happen and at times patience has reached its limits. We feel blessed to have Niko and at 4 1/2 years old he’s been asking a lot of questions, and one very specific “am I ever going to have a brother?” My heart aches at the unknown….

The news I was referring to is something I have been working on for a while now – a book, dear friends. You heard that right! The amazing Kate Woodrow of Chronicle Books (San Francisco) approached me last year asking if I would be interested to work on a book with them. I had never imagined I would be working on a book especially with such a prestigious publishing company, and until the contract was finalized I was still half dreaming. The whole process has been very rewarding and I couldn’t have asked for a better challenge and a more incredible team of people to work with. What’s the book about? You guessed it…Silhouettes! I wish I could share some images but since we’re not in publication yet, you’ll have to wait a few more months. I must say though, it feels so good to have put the deadlines behind. Look for the book in your local bookstores this Fall. Goodness, it feels surreal saying that!

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who have been giving me so much support over the last couple of years. Many of you I have met through the blogging world, and a few of you I have had to pleasure to get to know in person. You are wonderful and so kind for listening and encouraging my efforts with starting a home based business while being a mommy. Thank you, guys!
