The Big Announcement!

If you’ve been following my blog/Instagram/Facebook you’ll remember that I said that I had a BIG announcement. Announcement day is finally here! After a long year hard work, I finally did it.  I achieved a long-held goal of mine and I could not be more excited to share with everyone! I’ve been keeping this secret from my friends and family for a YEAR!!! If you know me, you know how hard that is.

Anyway, back to the announcement…

As you know, I want to try to make each day special and out of the ‘bordinary.’ Now that I have two boys, I strive even harder to attain that goal. When you get caught up in the boring routines of daily life two things happen 1. Life goes by way too quickly. & 2. You don’t make as many memories as you can be.  I am not talking about anything grand here. Something as simple as setting aside a bit of time to either cook or read with your child can create memories that last a lifetime. One of my fondest childhood memories was standing on a chair next to my grandmother making meatballs, or baking Christmas cookies each year as a family. So I try to continue that tradition with my boys.

One day last year, I was picking up the playroom for the millionth time that day and I allowed myself to drift off into thought. I started thinking about jam. I don’t know why. Maybe I was wiping jam off of something. That isn’t really a rare occurrence in our house. Anyway, I started thinking about jam, and my boys and a little story started forming in my head. I started to imagine that story with images, and once it was in there I needed to get it out. I raced to my computer, typed out the story, and little by little started making plans. Those plans turned into pages, and those pages finally became a book.

That’s right. I wrote a children’s picture book. Not only did I write a children’s picture book, I co-illustrated and PUBLISHED the book all on my own. That book is available for purchase TODAY on It also features a recipe for strawberry jam from that you can easily make with your little ones.

I am so extremely excited to share this news with you.

You can buy the book here: ‘Sam Likes Jam’
