Derek’s birthday always falls on Memorial Day weekend, so we once again enjoyed a crazy hiking adventure to celebrate. We did several smaller hikes, but by far, the best one was our journey up to the summit of Mt. LeConte and Myrtle Point. What a view!
In the spirit of rebirth and new life, I separated and replanted my sago palm pup! Crossing my fingers he thrives on his own! #happyeaster #plantsofinstagram #palmtrees #gardening #garden
After baking all yesterday at the beach, it’s a good excuse to hide in the shade today and get in that word count. Editing sucks, but this book won’t get better by itself!
I am sooo ready for summer and now, so is my hair! Thank you, Julie Rose, for a great color and cut – as usual! #highlights #hairstyle #summerhair #lightforthesummer

It’s always a competition in the Bradley household! Derek and I had a fantastic 7.8 mile hike last weekend, battling the wilderness and each other LOL! #hiking #hikingadventures #woods #scenery #couplegoals
I don’t wear glasses often, but when I do, I can’t decide which I like more. Out with the old and in with the new? Or (more likely) keep them both? 🤓

I hope you’re taking a moment to enjoy this Labor Day with family, friends, and a load off from the usual grind, but when it’s back to business tomorrow, my best advise to getting started on a first book is to get excited about an idea or character – and just start writing. And don’t stop until your story is done. As the greats have said before me, you can’t edit a blank page.
