Everyday Life: Books, Babies & Other Goodies

by Tammy Strobel on August 16, 2012

{Photography helps me see the world differently and enables me to be less sad about my dad’s death. Since I’ve been taking so many photos, I decided to begin a new series on the blog called  “Everyday Life.” The series showcase’s images from my everyday life. In addition, it fits perfectly with The August Break. Enjoy!}


The final version of my book arrived in the mail a few days ago. It’s so pretty! I can’t believe it will be going out into the world on September 18th! A big thanks goes to New World Library, Logan, and my family for making this possible.

I wish my dad was here to celebrate this moment with me. But I know he’s floating around in the clouds smiling. Last night, I had a dream about him. He was smiling at me and I gave him a monster hug. In the dream, I hugged him for as long as I could because I was afraid to let him go. He said, “Tammy, what’s wrong? I’m okay. Don’t worry.” It was such a comforting dream.

And speaking of writing, I’ve been writing essays for my blogging book tour this month and focusing on my writing class. Luckily, I have a few helpers who are keeping me in line . . .

Also, I’m still eating well . . .

Finally, we’ve been spending a lot of time with friends. Last night we had dinner with our buddies Heather and Dave. They had twin boys about a month ago and they are adorable!

What have you been up to this month?
