Welcome Dear Friend,

I hope you enjoyed a grand summer! Did you travel to any exotic destinations or hang out at home and enjoy precious time with the kids or grandkiddos? We logged in quite a few day trips to the mountains a couple hours away from our house and one trip to beautiful San Antonio. Other than that, we stuck mostly to home and we’re gearing up for another European trip with my parents in a few weeks.

Who loves autumn? Raising my hand here. It’s my favorite season. I enjoy all those plump pumpkins spilling over the steps of front porches, cheering for the Carolina Panthers, the sound of dried leaves crackling under my shoes, and hanging out with my family. And when the first scent of burning firewood drifts in on a brisk breeze, I know it’s time to pull out the sweaters and kiss summer farewell. Unfortunately, we’re not quite there yet in the Carolinas. Soon, I hope.🙂

I’m aiming to release Roping the Daddy, the third and final book in the Kester Ranch Cowboys series, on Tuesday, October 11. Yay! I don’t want to tell ya’ll how many times that book’s been yanked and stowed. So many interruptions, but this fall, Kierra and Hawk will finally experience their happily-ever-after. Christmas on Mistletoe Mountain is next in line, and if all goes well, you’ll meet Kane and Syd somewhere between Thanksgiving and December 1st.  ❄ A snow storm. A cozy fire. Two hearts that desperately need grace and healing. ❄

So, what’s going on with you? Any travel plans? New job? New house? Any additions to your families, babies, grandkiddos or pets? Click on over to the contact page and jot me an email or click the about page and link up with me on your favorite social media site. I’d love to get to know you better!

Thanks for stopping by, dear friend. I hope you’ll come back often. Enjoy autumn!

With all my love,
