Why I Was Gone in July…and Why You Should Be Here in August

The month of July has been, as they say, cray-cray. (Translation: crazy.)

Long story short, I had three weeks eaten up with preparing for events, traveling to/from events, attending events, and recovering from events — those events being a week-long Christian youth camp and a massive writers’ conference in New York City. It didn’t help that I expected to have access to WiFi at church camp and ended up with about an hour of Internet all week long. Being out of touch makes me a little antsy, and I hate not tending regularly to my email and blog.

However, I also learned that I need to let myself have some vacation time too. After my events were finished, hubby and I did a little sightseeing in the Big Apple and enjoyed some wonderful couple time together.

I’m done traveling for a while, and I feel terribly behind. But while my to-do list is full, my calendar is open for the next month — meaning it’s a great time to catch up.

So I’ll be catching up here on Hot, Holy & Humorous with a super-special feature — something I’ve never done before: A full month of blogging in August.

That’s right! Throughout August, I’ll be focused on my Summer of Q&A with J. Each weekday in August, I’ll post a reader question and my response. Then on Saturdays, I’ll feature a round-up and a check-in for what else is going on at HHH, as well as a giveaway of one of my books! I’ll start this Saturday, August 1, with a giveaway to one lucky reader of any of my three books in ebook format: your choice. Just watch for that post and instructions on how to enter.

That’s six days of blogging each week, people! Hope you’ll stick with me as we approach the last days of summer and address sex and marriage according to God’s design. See y’all starting tomorrow!

In the meantime…

What couple vacations have you taken this summer? What do you get from spending extended time away from home with your spouse?
