Saving The Book Tart- Wrap Up (last day of contest!)

The Book Tart heroesI am feeling so blessed! Thank you again to all the people who’ve reached out to encourage me and share moving horror stories and kind words. And a BIG thank you to all the authors helped me with content for this blog, The Book Tart, during my Saving The Book Tart event!

And THANK YOU to authors and readers everywhere!

Wow! This has been a whirlwind month. The living room ceiling fell in and my life spun like a drunken top. I felt like my life was out of control and I needed some help.

Soooo an update on my life. I moved from Aspen to Colorado Springs on July 27th. My Bookstore Beau, one of my sisters and my brother helped me move. They were laughing at my shorthand on the book boxes. PNR/UF LR- Obviously paranormal romance and urban fantasy books from my living room shelves right? 😛

a few of my boxes of books!


Our living room ceiling was replaced the week of July 28th. We’re still waiting on the wood floors to be repaired/replaced and some of our personal belongings… but *Kermit flail* our house is livable again!



I’ve been settling into my life with my Bookstore Beau and enjoying not being long distance anymore. It’s so wonderful not to say goodbye and have to drive 250 miles away from him anymore… or to have him 7511 miles away like when he was deployed to Afghanistan. We’ve been having fun making the house our home. Though I’m not even half unpacked yet! He has to build me lots of bookshelves actually. 😀

I also just got a job! I had my orientation on Friday and start training next week. I’m going to be a manager for a big box store… Our dress code involves red and khaki. 😉

I’m breathing again and smiling.

Thank you thank you thank you!!! I am forever grateful for all the help and support through my topsy turvy drama. I’m looking forward to the future!

  1. I always say things happen for a reason. I’m sure if you and Bookstore Beau could make it through that mess, that’s a pretty start to a serious relationship! Congrats!

    Also, congrats for the new job. That big box is my favorite store! Love it there!

    Good luck on your new journey! 🙂

  2. Congratulations on your new job! I am so glad things are beginning to work out for you. Hopefully your life will be a lot less stressful in the future.
