It’s been a busy time, getting back into teaching the last few months and getting the house ready for our baby! 28 weeks and counting… I haven’t been nearly as diligent about my blog as I’d like, but I’m back to Friday Fictioneers this week, a weekly prompt provided by Rochell Wisoff-Fields on her blog, Addicted to Purple.

If you have time, check out my previous post about Three Line Thursday’s new Light Lines anthology, released this week!
