2016 was complicated: I had a 1-year old running around, I lost my writing mojo, I got frustrated with the industry. I just wanted to curl up in a ball and quit. And I suppose you could say I did that. From July until November 1, I did exactly that. I stopped writing, I stopped marketing, I stopped everything. But then my husband said something to me: "What's your definition of success?" I took it a step further and asked myself if my definition had to be the same as everyone else's?

I know lately I've been starting with a quote, but the tagline for the movie is so fabulous, I had to use it! This movie has been a family favorite for years. My sister and I quote this movie often and even though it's been years since we've watched it (at least for me), we can still quote it pretty well. I heard it's on Netflix right now, so I think I'll be adding it to my weekend activities!
