Your Charmed Life

Your Charmed Life

Tomorrow is my swan song …

swan.jpgHi, friends — I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I would be giving up this blog at the end of my contract period. It’s not an easy parting, since I look forward to our chats, but I haven’t been able to figure out how to blog every day, have something worth reading every day, and still keep enough of the good stuff building up and churning inside my head for my next book and future books. Some people can do it, and I applaud them!

Tomorrow, Tuesday, December 15, for the final post, I’ll go back over the past year and pull out my ten favorites. This will be fitting: a Tuesday’s Top 10 to go out on. Also, anyone who is reading this prior to 8:30 p.m. Eastern time on Monday evening, please be my guest at tonight’s “Come Into Your Own in 2009″ teleseminar. The topic is “Let’s Get Organized,” and the guest expert is Elizabeth Quincy of A Matter of Heart Organizing. She wrote the lovely guest blog about staying sane over the holidays. Tonight we’ll talk about dealing with our stuff, our schedules, and the holiday season. I’ll also let everybody know what’s on tap for “Come Into Your Own in 2010.” To be part of tonight’s class, call in at 605-475-4800, PIN 120653#. We start at 8:30 Eastern, but if you’re on by 8:45, you’ll be there in time for the “entree,” Elizabeth’s organizing wisdom and her answering your questions.
If you don’t hear about this in time, or if you’re not free this evening, you can listen via the archives: 605-475-4849, same PIN 120653#. 
I don’t want to lose touch with you, and there are lots of ways we can stay connected:
  • You can subscribe to my free newsletter, The Charmed Monday Minute — the first part of the newsletter is a blog-like comminique, and the rest of it has q & a, recipes, announcements, all kinds of fun stuff
  • You can follow me on Twitter (my Twitter name is charmedlifelady)
  • You can be a fan on Facebook (there I’m VictoriaMoranAuthor)

Thanks, Victoria, I look forward to more newsletters because I’ve missed them. And quite frankly, the ads on this web site are annoying.

Victoria, I’m only sorry I missed this and got to it now but i do hope you or one of your staff find this comment. I have for many years now, about 8-10 or so, wanted to write you how much I loved your older “Shelter for the spirit Book” I once came across perusing bookshelves in the our small town library. I fell in love with the book; would read excerpts to my wife; would make notes and underline things in my notebook, and yes, I must confess, I turned over a few corners of pages too, like some treasure map so I could get the book out again and continue to read it, or leave nuggets for others. I must have checked out that book about 3-4 times over a year or so.
I tried to buy it but no one carried it. Although we have different spiritual persuasions I ate up so much of what you said about the home being kept simple, serene–it resonated deeply in my spirit and I yearned for making each things have meaning and loveliness.
I loved how you lived in that little place in Kansas city as a single mum, and how you faced the world in your circumstance. I feel like I sort of grew up with you and my only regret was that of course no other men would be interested in it, bu ti have since told about a dozen or more women about your writing and this book and now, “charmed Life” which i bought myself as guy starting out again with a lot if hurts from some things.
I have never read ANY author where I felt like I would love to meet them and just sit down and have a cup of tea with them but, Victoria, you are one such person I have felt that way with. I want to read that old book again, with its musty pages. So tactile, so soothing, so embracing.
Going to your site I am thrilled to see how you’ve really made it to the big time in a sense. You are truly a delightful person and an absolute encourager. I know you have a made a difference to many women with your simple nuggets of wisdom.
Thank you from one very appreciative fan– a young middle aged man.
If you are and your husband are ever in Colorado…..tea sometime, perhaps? :)
