I'm in love with the Romanian covers of the After series 😍 So, I haven't been super active the last few days and I wanted to talk about it a little. At first I wasn't going to say anything because I'm usually the happy, super positive person but this last week, I've felt the opposite. My pawpaw (grandpa) is dying, he's been sick for a few years and we've had a couple close calls but this time it's happening and it's making me think a lot about my childhood, family, and life in general. Someday I'll share more with you. But a little back story that I know some of you know, my biological dad was killed when I was a baby and his parents were always a huge part of my life growing up. my Mawmaw passed away a few years ago and it was one of the hardest days of my life and now her husband is dying and it's sort of my only connection to that entire side of the family and it's made me think about family and life and our connections with people around us in a way that I never had before. I'm rambling now, but anyway my point was that I was avoiding the internet (mostly) because I didn't want to post a sad update or make anyone uncomfortable but then I remembered the thousands of you that I've talked to about love, life, deaths, friendships, divorce, heartache, and remembered that you guys are my family and it's okay to not be the peppy "hi guys! Everything is so great!" chick all the time. On top of my family stuff, the hurricane in Texas is devastating and it's killing me to watch my home state (I was born in Ohio) and moved to Texas right after getting married when I was 18, and it's been my home since. Friends of mine have lost their homes and their pets and it's heartbreaking. Texas is doing just what Texans do and humanity and kindness are shining through. If you can donate, please do. If you can't, there are other ways to show your support. Hmm what else? I got a sort of update on the movie stuff today and hope I can share soon, I know it's killing you guys, but it's such a slowwww process. It's killing me too! Also, I have a date for the first chapter of my next series (being posted on Wattpad) and it's soooonnnn. Like soon, soon. Eek. Wanna see the cover??
