Happy March!

Just a quick post to say “Happy March!” to you, dear readers!

Jell-Jell’s outfit has been changed accordingly, thanks to Jennifer (see sidebar, but also):

I’m so excited it’s March, because that means winter’s almost over. Of course, this weekend has been full of bitter cold, but not for long! Oreo says he saw some green today, and he wanted to share his discovery with you.

What does March mean to you, dear readers? Here’s to hoping it’s full of luck and green for all of us. 🙂

Happy Easter & Happy Earth Day!

Oh readers, I’ve missed you! Life has been SO busy and demanding of my time lately (how dare it?), but mostly good. Tonight, the waitress at my sushi date with Jeremiah brought me an entire pot of tea for myself, which I was more than happy to drink all of…

…but less happy to be experiencing that slow-release of caffeine, still. I thought I would jot off a quick blog post before sleeping/staring at my ceiling. 😉

I’ve fallen terribly behind in my blog challenges–so tonight resumes with “H” in topic (see blog title) and form (haiku) for A-to-Z and NaPoWriMo!

I hope you had a Happy Easter, dear readers! Mine was lovely: it started with morning Easter Mass with my family, followed by Easter celebration dinner #1 with Jeremiah’s family, then concluded with Easter dinner #2 with my family. It was wonderful to spend the day so meaningfully with so many people I loved–and the spring weather was just gorgeous!

This is my official Easter bonnet! 😉 Left to right: me, Jeremiah, Jeremiah’s mom, Sarah, and Jessie ❤

Easter Treats

By: Amanda K. Fowler

Eggs full of candy–
But unlocked sweetness inside
Your heart is the treat.


I hope your Easter was just as lovely, dear readers–and I hope you have a Happy Earth Day, too!

Thank you for bearing with me as I adjust to the demands on my schedule. I hope to bring you more posts soon! 🙂

Marianjoy Auxiliary Spring Luncheon

Now that they made the official invitations for this event, I can share it with you! Every spring and fall, the Marianjoy Auxiliary hosts a women’s luncheon. This spring, I will be the featured speaker. My sister and I will talk about the incredible journey that the traumatic brain injury I acquired took us on. Also, I will be reading selections from my upcoming memoir, Afterglow.

The event will be held at the award-winning Waterleaf Restaurant at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn. The elegant luncheon will be prepared by the culinary students of this top school. At the event, you can also choose to enter raffles for popular gift baskets! All proceeds will go to benefit Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital.

Wear your spring best and join us on May 9th! Reservations by April 30th required, but you can pay at the door.

If you’d like an official invitation mailed to you, please send me a message with your address and I will send one to you. I can also email you a copy.
