Around The Diaz House Lately

We've been swamped over here lately - like barely able to get our heads out of water, swamped. Two weeks ago, Peter Brown flew into town to present at my school and I dedicated many hours to his visit.

Last week was National Reading Day and it was the first year we decided to celebrate it big. When I say big I mean- book character parade, writer's workshops, guest authors, guest readers, creative writing contest, poetry sessions, Young Thespian Competition, Dr. Seuss land, and tour around Narnia - all in one day big. Talk about planning and prepping! All in all, it was a huge success, the students loved it and best of all, we made reading look cool!

Over the weekend, we took a day trip to Naples with the in laws, grabbed lunch, laughed at our puppies and did some shopping. Sunday was spent with breakfast, church, golf, grocery shopping, and invitation making. I've had several large orders within the past month, and have been working on putting together a master portfolio to show at upcoming bridal meet ups! 

Other Randoms: 
- Gari is 100% back to normal. No more tummy troubles. Thank God!!

- I am in love with Trader Joe's. 
- We've put new artwork up on the walls.

- We've been going through our Nespresso capsules like water with the many late nights.

Happy start to your week! Make it a good one!
