If you're a missionary mom like me (a mother whose kid is serving a 2 year mission for the LDS Church), then you understand the title of this post perfectly. This is my son's second Halloween from home. He was out just a few months last Halloween. I take great joy in knowing that for the next one, he'll be home. Today was General Conference for the LDS Church and while listening to some very uplifting talks about life and trying to be a better person, I spent my time crafting this little number. He'll give most of the candy away (cuz he's nice like that), but I think he'll enjoy the graphics and know that I've been thinking about him. Hopefully, it will make him smile. I had a blast putting it together, kind of like a scrap book for The Nightmare Before Christmas. Enjoy! Feel free to copy away!
Do you have anyone far from home that you're thinking of and worrying about? Let's talk! I'd love to hear some of your care package ideas!

The mother of the bride must've gone insane. I do happen to know she slept in so long the day after the wedding that her husband was really worried about her;) But she's okay, just got tuckered out.
Here's the update: I just finished correcting all the line …
Crikey, as my youngest would say, it's been almost two months since I've posted.
Well, that might explain why it's so popular. Lol! I'm admittedly a terrible blogger. I use it more as a journal to keep a record of what's happening with writing, the publication process, and to show-off the reasons why I haven't been chained to my computer this summer, like every good writer should.
Writing news first: Last I checked in, I had hired an editor to do the final proof reading and formatting for my prequel novella and Book 1. I have struggled with a title for this first in a series. We both just call it Meg's book, because it is about a princess who sneaks out of the castle to help the people of her war torn country. She goes in disguise (of course) and adventure follows, the most exciting of which is meeting a ruggedly handsome soldier that she thinks is in her father's army. Connect the dots on that;) Yes, it's a rather large case of mistaken identity. I…
