First of all, Happy Earth Day!!! Remember to do something nice for our planet today! Actually, do that every day, but especially today if you’re into holidays. As the sign that my kid is carrying at school for an awareness project, There’s No Planet B! So pick up some trash, plant some trees and let’s sing and hold hands!
Now for the countdown. If you’re reading this and you’re a parent, I probably don’t even have to tell you what countdown I’m talking about. It’s like we’re going along, going along and then BOOM, your schedule explodes with to do lists that fills the weeks in.
We’re in official end of the school year mode around here and the days are getting packed. Field trips, music programs, awards programs, it’s all going down and getting squeezed into the next 4 ½ weeks of school.
For seriously, 4 ½ weeks and my little 2nd grader will be a “going into 3rd grade”. I have no proof to back my claim up, but I think the school puts everything at the end of the year so that us parents don’t notice how old we’re getting.
But I’m to you school! I notice and I’m aware. Our babies are growing up and next month marks another milestone. You can throw all the field trips at me you want. I’ll still notice.
Just kidding…please don’t throw anymore field trips. We’ll pretend.
What’s keeping you busy these days?
And guess what! I have a new release! Cupcakes And Crushes released and I’m also over at Fresh Fiction today giving away a couple copies off my backlist. Pop over for a visit and for your chance to win!
Reviewers are calling Cupcakes And Crushes “small town at its best” “small town at its finest” “cute small town romance” read more here.
Sometimes there is enough sweet to make up for the bitter.
Years ago, a broken heart sent Annie Cookie running from home, and she’s never looked back—until now. Her grandpa’s broken wrist means the family bakery is at risk of losing two big orders. Reluctantly, Annie returns to Turtle Pine to help out, only to discover it’s not just seven hundred cupcakes she has to bake, but also a wedding cake for the half-sister who stole her high-school sweetheart. Annie left town to get away from her sister. No way is she getting mixed up with her again. Once the cupcakes are done, she’s outta there.
Back in high school, Cade Revlin hid his crush on his brother’s girl, but when his brother dumped Annie for another Cookie sister, Annie slipped through his fingers and out of town. Now that she’s back, he’s determined to give her a reason to stay.
He’s got one week to change her mind. Or she’ll be gone in a cloud of powdered sugar.
Warning: Contains small-town meddling, family drama and all the necessary ingredients for a second chance at love—if they have the guts to turn up the heat.
