So, it’s been a while. I know. I look back at my last post – Oct. 2016! – and even then I’d said it’d been a while. And I explained what was going on, why I’d basically gone off-grid with my writing and publishing. So much has changed since then, and I’m happy to say, mostly for the better. After several months of struggle with giving up my home, depending on family more than I ever have, and pulling myself out of some of the deepest pits of depression I’ve ever been in (which is saying a lot), I’ve launched into … Continue reading

Hey! Remember me? You know, Kristie Cook, author, chocoholic, Supernatural and Gilmore Girls addict, night owl, needs-coffee-to-make-coffee, owner of this blog? Yeah, that’s right! I know, I know. It’s been a while, I apologize for the disappearing act. It’s just been one of those weeks months years.

I honestly don’t remember which came first – my obsession with purple or with Prince. I mean, purple’s been my favorite color for as long as I can remember.

When I sit down tomorrow with my family to give thanks for all of my blessings, please know that you will be close to the top, only after my Savior and my family and friends. I am so grateful for you and am glad to have you in my life, even if I’ve never personally met you. I hope you have a blessed day full of love and good times.

A quick update on the travels: It’s been…interesting. Last week, we stayed in a beautiful, (eerily) quiet place on Lake Cumberland in Kentucky. I absolutely loved it except I hardly ever had cell service and we had to go up to the office for wifi. I should have gotten a lot of writing done, but unfortunately, not quite as much as I would have liked. I was, at least, able to upload one of my campfire chat videos, so if you’re lost on what’s going on, you can watch that one here: http://kristiecook.com/my-first-campfire-chat/ On Sunday, we headed to the Great Smoky … Continue reading
