Keep it Simple!



Hello, friends!

Did you check out the video?

These beauties (Trailing Vinca) were $2 on the clearance rack!

Since the pots are too confining, I plan to transplant them into hanging planters and display them on our arbor.

Our Mandevillas are loving the high heat and humidity. So am I!

Marty the Mandevilla is exploding with fresh growth!

There are no words to describe the Balloon flowers.

Sentimental Blue Balloon flower…WOW! And it’s a perennial!

My orchids continue to put on a show!

Over-achieving orchid.


I’m still waiting to hear from Harlequin on my proposal.

Hopefully, I’ll hear something soon as they’ve assigned me to my new editor.

Recently, I received a surprise email from Woman’s World Magazine.

I sold another 5-Minute Romance!

A Sweet Start should be in stores the week of July 17th. I’ll keep you posted.

The busier my life becomes, the more important it is to keep things simple.

This might not look simple, but there’s a method to the bulkiness!

In addition, limiting distractions (a.k.a. social media), I write everything down in my planner, journals, plotting notebooks, etc.


For the planner junkies out there, I have this lovely Fringe calendar up for grabs.

Keep it Simple!

With an August 2022 start, it’s a great time for you to simplify your life.

This planner has everything I love.

At the start of each month, you can record your goals, birthdays, anniversaries, and a to-do list, plus additional room for notes.

Love this!

A monthly spread is a must for me.

I need to know what the month has in store.

Love to see the entire week ahead.

Plenty of room for each day.

Finally, a notes section at the end of each month. Another must-have for me!

A great space for additional planning.

If you love planners as much as I do, email me to enter the giveaway!
