It's hard to believe that summer's almost over.


But it's been a great one! From two weeks in Hilton Head, to many weekends spent boating and sitting by the campfire, my new hobbies of birdwatching and astronomy, bike riding through our beautiful city, and an upcoming trip to Las Vegas, this has been a wonderful summer spent with family, friends, and my loving husband and pets.

I hope yours has been great too!

Another recurring theme through this summer was, as Rihanna would say, "work work work work work." 
I've had a lot of irons in the proverbial fire and a lot of awesome opportunities, too.

Please read on to learn more about what I've been up to.

This week, sent a camera crew from California to follow me around for a day. We filmed from 10-6 on Tuesday, so that they could see what life is like for a writer and advocate with rheumatoid arthritis. The 3-minute video should air sometime after Labor Day. Stay tuned!
