My oldest daughter, McKenna, and her company, Urban Botanic, were featured in a local magazine, Utah Valley Magazine. Twenty years ago, you'd have to take my word for it. But thanks to the miracle of the internet, you can actually view the entire magazine or just her page.

I won a prize in the Read Together Challenge. I really, really recommend that you participate in this if you can. It is so worthwhile and can really strengthen your relationship with your children. Megan and I are having lots of fun reading and discussing our books (New Moon—Meg, Me; Uglies—Meg, Me). We challenge each other to read more. I haven't even turned on the TV in two days! McKenna and Melanie are also starting to read some of our books. I can't wait to talk to them about them.

Tristi Pinkston, fellow Reading Thing participant and blogger extraordinare, is running a Summer Special on her Scentiments products—order $15, get two lip balms free. I am really liking the grapefruit facial wash, scrub & moisturizer. And I LOVE her lip balm—I can't decide whether I like the Vanilla Banilla flavor or the Buttercream best.

The Whitney Awards are looking for sponsors. If you have an interest in LDS fiction you might want to consider contributing. They'll accept donations of any amounts. I just sent a check.
