Editor’s note

{Some of what I've been up to...}

What a summer! I could show you my never-ending, color-coded task list to prove that I've been busy, but I'll spare you the details. Suffice it to say, I've been busy! But. Busy on good things and all of it related to FAMILY, which is what my life is all about.

I recently saw this "float" in a small-town parade and it got me thinking - what a great family reunion activity! Make a statement about what YOUR family is all about and then enter your display/float/sign/whatever in the local parade. No parade? No problem. Display your creation on your lawn or march your own parade around a parking lot. Sounds silly? Yeah, maybe. But "silly" is a great thing for bonding families.

My kids have a new cousin! To celebrate (well, and to update our pictures), I made a digital photo book of all their cousins. This is the cover - isn't it awesome?

It's just one more way of helping my kids know their cousins. Each page features one child with pictures and little facts about them.

Last month, I mentioned that a new e-book is in the works. This comprehensive last-minute planning guide is still in the works and it's definitely something to get excited about. If you don't have a lot of time to plan, can't spend a lot of money but still want a quality event, this e-book will be the perfect solution!

It even comes with a list of things to take with you. So... with just the e-book and a few basic supplies, you'll have everything you need for a variety of games, activities and tips for your family reunion. Watch for more information soon!

As always, I welcome your comments and feedback - simply reply to this email.

I wish you all the best,

{Add meaning. Make memories.}

P.S. How could I forget to tell you?? Home and Garden Television contacted me to see if I could help them find a family for a special feature show they're doing in November. How cool is that!? Some of you sent in your application and I wish you the best of luck!
