Celebrate the Small Things - Reboot edition


Hello! I'm sorry I've been remiss in posting the last few Fridays--life's been busy. 

This week, I'm trying to look at my stressors in a different light. I have some deadlines fast approaching, but I am blessed because deadlines mean I have a contract. We're moving soon, but we are fortunate to have a lovely home, and we never have to worry about Little Roo not having a safe place to sleep. Sometimes I slip up and revert back to being stressed, but I'll keep working on it!

Today, Mom and I are going to our local library to see Susan Wiggs and get books signed. Should be fun. The rest of the weekend is all business--packing and writing, yippee!

What are you up to this weekend?

Celebrate the Small Things - Gardening edition


Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!

I don't know about you, but I had a pretty decent week.  I managed to get a fair amount of work done, and I also took a night off and went to bed early so I could catch up on some sleep.  I had a nice swim date with a friend (which Little Roo enjoyed immensely) and it was good to catch up with my friend and her mom, even though I did get a little sunburned.

Mister and I have big plans this weekend.  Our side yard is in need of major attention, so we're going to spend Friday and Saturday evenings gardening. It will be hot, but it needs to be done.  Then we need to start packing...

What are you up to this weekend?  I hope you have something fun planned!

Celebrate the Small Things - Catch up edition


Hello, everyone!  I'm sorry to have missed the last few weeks of posts, but time simply got away from me.  I'm happy to report we're all doing well, and I've got lots to celebrate!

My latest book, Enticed by the Operative, releases in digital form today and in print on Tuesday!  It's the first book in my Doctors in Danger miniseries, so I'm pretty excited.  Here's the back cover blurb, if you're interested:

The lives of a beautiful surgeon and her DEA agent protector are at stake in this thrilling tale!  
On a medical mission to South America, Dr. Olivia Sandoval hardly expects to be threatened by a drug cartel. To save lives, Olivia agrees to transport drugs for them. When DEA agent Logan Murray appears as her partner-in-crime and rescuer, Olivia's relieved…and drawn to her knight in shining armor. 
Logan jumps at the chance to guard a beautiful woman and bring down a drug ring. After all, neither he nor Olivia are looking for forever love—just justice. But one kiss changes that as they go on the run. When taken hostage in the jungle, they must not only defeat the enemy—but also escape with their lives!
I'm also happy to report that I got the edits back for Dr. Do or Die, the second book in my Doctors in Danger miniseries, and I managed to write a fairly decent synopsis for the third book in the series--at least, I thought it was decent.  Keep your fingers crossed my editor likes it!
I have some book giveaways going on at Goodreads, and I have some guest blog posts next week (complete with giveaways!) so please watch this space--I'll post details as soon as the links go live!
It's a holiday weekend here, and Mister has Monday off.  I think we're going to spend some time with family, which should be nice.  We may even have a date and go get pedicures together--I had to twist his arm to get him to go the first time, but he realized he likes the way it makes his feet feel so it's been a lot easier to convince him to go again.
What about you?  Any big plans for the weekend?

Celebrate the Small Things - Musical edition


Happy Friday!  Sorry to be a little late in posting, but the day got away from me.

This week, I'm celebrating my recovery from the sinus infection from hell. I still have a few sniffles, but I feel loads better compared to this time last week.  Hooray for modern medicine!

Today, Little Roo had her first music appreciation class.  She had a blast! We sang songs, chanted, danced, and they had several kid-friendly instruments for her to play with.  She even played alongside a little boy and his sister, which is huge because she's normally a watcher rather than a player. The class meets every Friday until August, and I'm excited to go back next week :)

We don't have any big weekend plans--just errands and the usual weekend stuff.  What about you?  Tell me what's going on so I can live vicariously through you!

Celebrate the Small Things - It takes a village edition


Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a better week that me--I'm sick.  I think it's a sinus infection, and it's the worst one I've had in years.  It's really knocked me out, and I'm so lucky that my Mom lives nearby, because she has been a lifesaver the past few days.  She's watched Little Roo while I napped, and she's the only reason we've made it through the week.  If I'd been on my own, the baby would have been parked in the pack-n-play in front of the TV all week.  I honestly don't know how single parents survive, and I hope I never have to find out!

Fortunately, I got my book turned in before falling ill.  And I'm happy to report that I'll be writing another Colton family book, which will be released next May!  I had a blast writing Colton Baby Homecoming, and I think this book will be just as fun! :)

Any big weekend plans?  I'm hoping to regain my sense of taste and smell soon, and I'm also hoping to feel well enough to attend a free symphony concert on Sunday with the family.  Little Roo loves music, and I hope she'll enjoy it.

Hope you have a good weekend!
