The Arrival of Elevate the Everyday

I cannot tell you how exciting it is to get a surprise visit from the FedEx truck on a Saturday morning. Especially when you're eagerly awaiting a special delivery like this.

Announcing the arrival of Elevate the Everyday: A Photographic Guide to Picturing Motherhood.

Delivered an entire month earlier than was expected, I am admittedly caught a little off-guard and unprepared. I guess I know now how my parents felt when I was born; as my mother was giving birth to me, my father nearly missed it, because he was rushing to buy diapers. I came so unexpectedly early that they hadn't even thought to buy diapers yet, or so the story goes. 

I feel sort of the same way. I have been getting prepared for this book's arrival and planned on "being ready" in mid-July. In other words, I'm not really ready now. Isn't that the way it goes sometimes? No due date is ever certain. That's just not the nature of the way things are born. And since birthing a book can be similar to birthing a baby, this all makes a lot of sense. 

I might not have all my ducks in a row (as I had hoped I would) but, the book is here, and the rumor is, it will be shipping to Amazon customers even before my author and promo copies are shipped out. Before my plans for the launch are in place. Before my website has been spruced up. Before all of my other big news surrounding the book can be revealed. *sigh* 

I guess the timing of things makes no matter. The rest will all come in due time. All that matters is the book is here and she is a beauty.

I am one proud mama.

I purchased a copy of the book and love it! So many great ideas that I wish I would have known when my kids were little.
