Goal #335 - Check

So one of the things that I realized after this retreat is that I need to accomplish some of my goals!!! lol! One of my goals that I had before I get married was to write a book, actually two...but the other one is still in the works! I realized that I could keep procrastinating on this book or at least get something started and start writing! So yesterday I started the "Dear Natalie" blog
Basically, a couple years ago one of my sisters friends parents had a party for the girl. The party was basically welcoming the girl into womanhood, a whole bunch of women came and brought words of encouragement for her for the coming years and how to be a Proverbs 31 woman! I decided to write a little something for her and it ended up being 3 pages of notes!! I thought after that that I should write a book for girls from someone who had just been through what they are going through! My sister Natalie is having her "Welcome to Womanhood" party soon so I decided to start this blog for her and other girls around her age just to help them out! Check it out! And even though most of you probably aren't teen girls...well maybe you are!!!...I think some of it will still be relevant for all of us! Have an awesome day everyone!!

But DJ she doesn't have to pay a mortgage right now!

But I guess I can give her a little credit, she made enough to take me out to a really nice restaurant on my birthday.

with all the stuff she's doing lately to move in the right direction.
i'm thinking roughly a year from now a mortgage will be no problem at all.

I love the idea of this book. I have a girl who is about to turn 10 (YIKES) and we are already talking about modesty and purity and trining bras. If you do ever get this book published I would be first in line for a copy.
