My oldest is graduating from high school this year. Where has the time gone!? Needless to say it’s been a very busy few weeks not only in planning and preparing for his graduation party (which is this Sunday June 7th), but it’s also been a busy time with going to graduation parties of all our friends who have graduating seniors. Many of these kids we’ve known since they were wearing diapers and in the nursery with our son.
It’s exciting to see my son and all his friends maturing and getting ready for the next stage in their lives. And it’s also fun to celebrate with the parents that we’ve shared so much with over the years. We’ve cried, laughed, and prayed hard. And now we’re going through this milestone of sending-our-kids-off.
In addition to partying with all the graduates, I’m also partying this week for a different reason. My ninth full length book, Hearts Made Whole, released on Tuesday, June 2, and so all week long I’ve been celebrating the occasion with giveaways galore!
Check out my “Afternoon at the Beach” giveaway where you can win a really fun set of items to take to the beach (or a lighthouse!) including a picnic basket, beach bag, beach towel, and flip flops. And a copy of my book, of course! There are second and third prizes too! So don’t miss out!
To celebrate the release of Hearts Made Whole together on this blog, I’m hosting one last giveaway this week! All you need to do is fill out the Rafflecopter form below and leave a blog comment by answering this question:
