I’m SO excited!!!

I know that I have much to blog about.  If you saw my Facebook post not too long ago, you know that my ex showed up at my house.  Soon to follow is a post about that Twilight Zone experience.  I promise.

But for now, I would like to take a break from my regularly scheduled drama to share with you some exciting news.


If you have never read The Big Mama Blog, I encourage you to go there now and catch up.  Seriously, her humor got me through my divorce.  I read her blog EVERY DAY during 2008 to experience some joy through my pain.

And I will tell you that Melanie, aka Big Mama, is a beautiful person both inside and out.  I am so very truly happy for her.  If you have gone through rough times and border on the slightly bitter side like me, it’s sometimes a tad bit difficult to be happy for people.  It’s so much easier to feel jealousy and self-pity.

It’s not that way with Melanie.  Y’all, she deserves this.  This and so much more success that is surely coming her way.  She’s one of those people who can touch your life and you will never forget it.  I am lucky that during some very awkward teen years, she was part of my life.  We cried on each other’s shoulders about losses that we thought (at the time) were insurmountable, and we laughed a thousand laughs at stupid things.  I mean, some really stupid things.

Now I can’t wait to read about those really important years of her life as a mother.  A role that she was always meant to play.  A role that I know she’s perfect for.  I just pre-ordered her book, Sparkly Green Earrings, and I hope that you will too.

I really hope that Melanie doesn’t mind this post.  I probably should have gotten her permission, but I’m just SO EXCITED! 


  1. I agree her blog is awesome. And you know her?!?? So jealous – but in a good way! Can’t wait for her book to come out!

  2. Thank you!!!! This is about the sweetest thing ever. Love you so much!!!

      I mean it, Mel. I am giddy with excitement over this. I teared up watching the video.

      I am so blessed to have you in my life…near or far. Love you always!
