Well, this is it! The year is winding down but first, the holidays! So let me wish you all Happy Holidays and to those who celebrate it like my family does, Merry Christmas!
With the usual Christmas tree spot having been turned into the LilDude’s distance learning station, there will be no big tree so we’ve settled for a small Christmas tree on the dining table for now and paper snowflakes that LilDude made along with other decorations he’s taped on the walls all over the house.
Heck, even I’ve learned how to make these paper snowflakes and my goal is to make this:
I actually haven’t seen the series but I don’t care. I love this snowflake. And yes, I’ve read all the spoilers so at this point, I don’t think I need to watch it at all lol
I actually have no idea what to make for Christmas eve yet but I’m sure I’ll figure it out eventually. First, I’m trying to hit a deadline – more like a surprise New Year’s Eve release. If I make it, there’ll be a new release. If not, well, just pretend you didn’t just read about it. Deal?
I know I’ve been writing about my writer’s block and depression for most of this year but I actually feel a hundred times better now. Maybe it’s the winter solstice or maybe it’s because it’s the Great Conjuction when Jupiter and Saturn come together to form this bright star. Or maybe it’s because I met some unexpected friends along the way who helped me through the dark times.
Whatever it is, I’m glad to be back with a happy heart and a brighter outlook. It really feels like night and day, another proof that time does heal all wounds – or at least make you forget what caused the ruckus in the first place.
I hope you are having a good holiday wherever you are. I am grateful for you and thank you for stopping by to read my blog.
As my gift to you, I’ve got a heartwarming Christmas romance for you. It’s my first holiday story, inspired by a trip to the Christmas tree lot with my little guy (who’s not so little anymore!), and you can download it for free.
THE ACCIDENTAL CHRISTMAS
When a marriage of convenience ends in scandal, single mother Cameron Thomas must now make a life for herself and her son in a small seaside town where years ago, she’d been happiest.
But even as she struggles to adjust to a life that’s far from the lifestyle she once knew, it’s forgiving herself that’s turning out to be the toughest thing to do, made even harder when she crosses paths with the man whose love she gave up so long ago.
This is a 10k word holiday story about love and forgiveness inspired by a trip to the Christmas tree lot with my then-five-year-old son who was determined to choose the perfect tree for our house. I hope you enjoy it!
