Just returned from a Highlights workshop, a week in the Sierras with family, the Los Angeles Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators annual conference, a week and a half in Maine with my husband’s family, and a long weekend with my family. It’s been a month since I’ve been home longer than the amount of time it takes to do laundry and repack my suitcase. For various reasons, I’m mentally exhausted, so before I post anything exciting (or unexciting as the case may be), I’ll leave you all with a reblog of Britt Skrabanek’s August Life Enthusiast post, highlighting yours truly in 750 words (or fewer). If you’re not familiar with Madame Britt, she majors in enthusiasm (when not writing or doing yoga). Looking forward to catching up with you all over the next couple of weeks. it may take me a few days to get back into the rhythm of “normal” life. Cheers!
Last month Eden Baylee discussed how diversity makes life meaningful and how fortunate we all are to live together in this unique world. In my monthly series, The Life Enthusiast Chronicles, lovely individuals of the world share how life inspires and energizes them.
Today I’m happy to bring you babies the fantastic Jilanne Hoffmann from San Francisco. Reading Jilanne’s blog always makes me smile, because she’s a smart cookie with a rambunctious spirit. A children’s book author, she brings a sense of play to everything she writes.
I also love our blogging conversations, and I will never forget the time she left me a comment with a link to a video about Tao Porchon-Lynch, the world’s oldest Yoga teacher. I cried in my coffee that morning.
Jillanne is a natural Life Enthusiast, so it’s a real treat to have her here.
Connect with Jilanne on Twitter.
