New Book! Posted on 20 Apr 21:45 , 1 comment

So, I typically keep personal and business endeavors separate...BUT...I am going to share with you a really special, sentimental project that I have been working on for almost two years.

As some of you may know, I lost my mother to breast cancer when I was just ten years old. This has affected everything in my life. When I became a mother in June 2013, my life was sweetened. Thanks to my supportive husband and The Vak Shack, I am able to stay home with my children, which is especially important to me, after having my time with my own Mama cut short.

Shortly after my daughter was born I wrote a sat in a notebook for 2.5 years until I finally decided it was time to turn it into a children's book. And that's what I did! I am sharing to get the word out...I currently rank #135 on my Amazon category and my dream is to get to the #1 neat would that be!

This book is the perfect gift for ALL it is about how generations of love are passed on through a tune. It's really sweet and sentimental. So, if you know of any mothers (expecting Mamas count, too!) who have ever rocked a baby to sleep at night, or if you are a grandparent yourself...I would SO appreciate you passing this book along. I think you'll love the ending!

God bless you all. Thank you for your wonderful patronage of The Vak Shack since 2006...I am so grateful that I am able to own and operate a business here in the USA that allows me to stay home with my children (and pursue my dreams).

Happy Mother's Day!!
