Books, Babies, Houses. . .oh my!

Posted on

So 2011 has already been a very busy year for the Bruce family! I have been so thrilled with the great response to my new novel Looks Like Love. I’ll be doing a blog book tour next month, which I’m very excited about. 🙂 The book trailer has been getting a lot of hits. If you haven’t checked it out yet, just click here. Thanks to everyone who’s already bought the book! Keep spreading the word.

Also, we’ve already bought a new house this year! We’re still early in the process, but we hope to  move sometime next month! Yay! I can’t wait. I’m one of those people who enjoys a certain amount of change. I like the opportunity to start fresh somewhere. But moving itself is never fun. You know, the packing, the cleaning, the packing, the cleaning . . . But once it’s all said and done, we’ll be settled in a new place with new memories to make!

And then there’s the most exciting news of all! We’ll be welcoming a new addition to the family this year! I’ve been trying to tell people slowly, and I finally just decided to make the announcement on my blog. We’re super excited! I’m 2 months along at this point and our due date is at the end of August. I’m already looking forward to decorating a new nursery and choosing a baby name. These past few weeks have been a little uncomfortable. Morning sickness and lots of weepiness, if you know what I mean. But we’re dealing with it. It’s amazing to me how things I normally can’t get enough of (Diet Dr Pepper, for example), suddenly aren’t my first choice. Instead, I want things like strawberry soda and cherry 7Up. We had our first ultrasound and were so happy to see that little heart fluttering.

So, I told you! 2011 is proving to be an exciting year already. So many changes and wonderful things happening. I’m thankful for all of it. And it’s only January! What about you? How’s 2011 going for you? As for the Bruce family, books, babies, houses . . . oh my! 🙂

  1. Brandy! This is so exciting! I’m happy for you guys. A new baby! A new book! Fame and fortune…, in time I suppose. We should do lunch one day.

    Also, I’m on chapter 6 of your book and LOVE it. I had to force myself to quit reading it last night and go to bed. I was busy doing law school apps and all that and then by the time I had a chance to read, it was close to bed time. Argh! Loving it so far. I hope to finish it in the next few days, depending on how much time I get to read.
