This year is the 10 year anniversary of Soaring Spirits International. 

This Sunday is the official anniversary day of when Michele founded the non-profit. 


July 13th weekend, I will be presenting once again, at Camp Widow San Diego. 

July 13th will be the 7 year anniversary of my husband Don's sudden death. 

July 13th, my book about his death and our life together and my life in the aftermath, will be officially released and available at the Camp Widow bookstore (hopefully.) 


September 30th I am having my Book Launch Party in NYC, something I have wanted to do since this whole thing began. September 26th, I will be 47 years old, and no longer the same age of 46 that my husband was, when he left for work one morning and never came home. 

We are in final editing this week, and the pressure is on. It is very important to me that this book be ready for Camp Widow, and that everything goes well in trying to upload it, add pictures, choose page sizes, shipping issues, money issues, on and on and on. I am not sleeping well, my stomach is in knots, and my skin is out of control with the dryness and blotchy patches and rashes that I always get on my arms, legs, and other weird places, when I’m stressed. 

I am honestly not stressing about whether or not people will like my book. I have worked so damn hard on this for the past 4 plus years, and I know it’s the book that I wanted to write. I know it will help people, and that people will like it. 

I’m just emotional and feeling the pressures of hoping that everything goes okay. 

After all this time, I still don’t want to disappoint my beautiful, dead husband. 

I want to make him proud, and I want the world to fall in love with him, like I did. 

I have so many things sitting inside of my head right now. 

I just want everything to be okay.

    Hi Kelly my husband also passed on 7/13. It will be a year next month. I was pregnant at the time of his passing. So now it’s my 2 boys and I. It’s been really hard but my boys help me push through. I would love to purchase your book. Please let us know when it’s available. Best of luck to you.
