After some rocky times, the future is looking brighter for former Full House
star Jodie Sweetin.
Last November, Sweetin filed for legal separation
from husband Cody Herpin and later faced accusations of a substance abuse relapse
, but now Sweetin is looking forward to quality time with her daughter and says "things are going really well."
"[Cody and I] have managed to work things out a little bit better," Sweetin, 27, told reporters Tuesday night at the launch party for Op's new ad campaign at Mel's Diner in West Hollywood. "We share custody right now and it's going really well."
With another court date scheduled for August, Sweetin is enjoying spending time with the couple's daughter, Zoie – especially by the pool.
"I have my daughter so I'm getting her in the pool and she's so much fun," says Sweetin. "She's 15 months old and she's just cute and itty bitty and adorable and chubby in her little bathing suit. That's my summer fun, it's being a mom, and getting to play with my daughter in the pool."
In the meantime, Sweetin has wrapped up some more TV and film work and is devoting time to reading more scripts and the upcoming release of her new book, UnSweetined,
due out in November.
"I'm really getting back in the business and it's wonderful. Things are going really, really amazing for me right now."
As for the single life, Sweetin isn't too concerned with it. "Right now, my daughter is my main focus, but a girl's gotta have a little fun."
