Focus on Mom {October 2013} and a giveaway

October 14, 2013
Every month, Nicolette of Working on a Project and I challenge ourselves and you to get out from behind the camera and step in front of it. We ask you to think about capturing the simple everyday moments that years from now you and your family will treasure most regardless of what you were wearing or what kind of camera you were using.
This month, I am taking the lead in introducing you to our featured mom. Hilary is the mom of Lucy, a beautiful girl of the feline variety. As we have mentioned before, we want to include ALL moms in this monthly photo challenge and that includes those of furry “children”. Hilary and her husband Marc, have been friends of our family for a long time and her blog, Feeling Beachie, is the first one I ever read and followed. Hilary is, more or less, directly responsible for my own blog. 🙂

Hilary started her blog in an effort to see if she could take her writing to the next level. She had been thinking and dreaming about writing a book. Not just any book, but a book about her relationship with her very commitment-phobic husband.
Her dream finally became a reality last month with the publication of “Dangled Carat”, her memoir about one girl’s attempt to convert the ultimate commitment-phobic man into a doting husband with a lot of help from his family and friends.
I am so proud and happy of my friend and in honor of us featuring her this month, Hilary has decided to let us giveaway a Kindle copy of her book to a lucky reader!
Hilary not on blogs at Feeling Beachie, where she hosts the fun Follow Friday Four Fill in Fun blog hop each week, but started a second blog, Dangled Carat, yes, the same name as the book, about all things relationship related. There she features other bloggers and writers as they tell their relationship stories and also asks dating related questions. It’s interesting and fun to read what others have to say about their successful and sometimes, failed relationships.

You can connect with Hilary on her Feeling Beachie Facebook page, Dangled Carat Facebook page or her new author page, as well as on Twitter. She loves to connect and make new friends and is the sweetest person you’ll ever meet. We can’t wait to see her in a few weeks when she’s coming down to Florida for a visit.

So now it’s your turn! Get out from behind that camera and share your beautiful faces with us and then enter the giveaway for a fun read!

    I love cats (I’m a kitty mom to 4…and 3 dogs too, plus 3 human children) and Hilary’s book looks really interesting!

    • Susi October 21, 2013 at 2:22 pm

      Michelle, we are down to one cat, one dog, one gerbil and one hamster and as much as I love animals, I like the smaller numbers. For now, this is perfect for us, maybe in the future I’d like to get a big dog again, I just can’t imagine not ever having another one. 🙂
