Hello dear friends. It has been such a long time since I’ve typed a Sunday Coffee, so I’m a little nervous but I missed these posts. I’ve really missed blogging in general but trying to balance blogging with motherhood, college, kids doing school at home and all the other things that hold the universe up on a day to day basis became a bit much. Who knows what this year has in store and if things will be any better, but I want to make rekindle my love affair with blogging.
So I am currently on a break from school until the 11th of this month. I was accepted into my college’s Masters in Teaching program which I’m very intimidated, nervous and excited about. Things happen so fast. One moment I’m retiring from the military and becoming a stay at home mom and full time college student and in the blink of an eye my Bachelors is completed and I’m faced with what now? For about five minutes I was hit with the anxiety of, I’m 34 years old and am completely starting over, wtf! I did the military since I was 18 years old and now that phase of life is completely over. Honestly, I’m scared shitless to start over in a career that I’ve always wanted to do but veered from that path for a while. I’m really hoping that the nervousness will ease with now being in a degree program designed for teaching. *cheers to making moves this year*
Reading wise, I binged two romances by one of my favorite romance authors yesterday, Jill Shalvis. I have slowly been making my way through her Lucky Harbor series. I read books five and six so I’m smack dab in the middle of the series now and am antsy to see if I can finish the whole thing before school starts back. While I’m enjoying the series, I’m not enjoying it as much as the Heartbreaker Bay series which was my first series by her. This series is older though and in a lot of ways just feels different, hits different, lands differently than Heartbreaker Bay did. Lucky Harbor is a literal small town with small town antics and Heartbreaker Bay was in a big city that felt like a small town but one thing Heartbreaker Bay had that I’m missing with Lucky Harbor was the humor. Maybe that’s just something that came with time. Maybe I started in the wrong place? Maybe I should’ve started with the old and worked my way up to the new..I don’t know, what do you think is the smartest way to tackle an author’s bibliography? Start from the beginning and work your way forward or vice versa? I think starting with one of Jill’s new series is what hooked me! I fell in love with her as an author. I think maybe had I started with her older stuff, I may not have fallen so hard for her. I may not have been convinced..
