My son is graduating from the 8th grade in a few weeks. I can't believe it. It seems like yesterday he was a baby. Now he's taller than me and proud of that fact. Personally, I'd prefer that he was still in the stroller. But children have to grow up. And seasons have to change.

Summer is almost here, and with it comes my break from writing this blog. However, I will be blogging at Cowboy Kisses, the first Wednesday of each month, beginning in June. Stop by and say hello, get to know me and the other fantastic ladies at Cowboy Kisses who love to write western historical romance. (

When Iím not blogging, Iíll continue to work on my current novel, visit with family and friends and enjoy those lazy afternoons of this great season. I will be on Facebook, so if any of you want to say hello, please find me at:!/JulieLence or at

Until mid-August, have a great summer everyone! Be safe. Be happy. Be healthy.
