Anniversaries and Skin Care

My husband Carson and I have officially been married for 3 years, as of yesterday! We were married at Shawnee Mission Park underneath a canopy of trees, surrounded by shimmering green shades of lush leaves and grass. It has been our tradition since then to return to our wedding site and have a picnic where we pledged our faithful love in honor or our special day.

About a year ago I found out that Carson really doesn't like picnics. Yet he continues to honor this tradition, he says, because he loves me and I love picnics. He admitted that he'd rather have had our wedding at BB's Lawnside BBQ in order to have a more tasty and bug-free tradition. But alas, yesterday we sat at a picnic table on our wedding spot, ate apple pie, crackers and cheese, swatted bugs off our ankles (Carson spit out a bug that has flown into his mouth), and quietly, in our own ways, renewed our vows.

Now that our anniversary has passed and my "keeping kids busy in the summer" e-book is complete, it's time to move on to my next project. My next assignment is about "becoming a better you: ways to keep your skin, hair and nails looking their best". Carson finds it odd, but I am really excited about this task. One, I will be able to learn all kinds of interesting tips about skin, hair and nail care as I research. I'm certainly not an expert, but I plan on becoming a bit of one as I go. This is a definite bonus to writing e-books. The process of researching and writing is challenging and fun. Gaining knowledge along the way keeps my mind growing and that is a definite plus!

If any of my blog readers have some unique tips about how you keep your hair, skin and nails looking good, please share them with me. I plan on making this e-book a fun, informative collection of tricks and tips that are not necessarily found in your typical glamour magazine. I invite and appreciate your input!

As I write, my two year daughter is sitting in her stroller, Dora doll in one hand, green, woven basket with flashlight in another, waiting to go on our morning walk. So off we go!

Hi Sherri,
Where can I get the E-Book on kids in the summer? I don't have kids, but I have a very special niece. . . .
Not that I have that great of skin, but my tip, which you'll probably see everywhere in your research is to wear sunscreen all of the time. I have a "daily" lotion with like 15 SPF, and whenever I go to the park or run, etc., I use the real deal 30 SFP waterproof and wear a hat. I've literally not been in the sun without sunscreen for years, and I think it helps me stay younger looking. I have friends who is a triathlete who is in her late 30's. She's got the body of 20 year old from all of the exercise, but she hasn't taken care of her skin, so her face looks like she is 50.
I think your blog is a great idea. Good luck!
