Who doesn't love....

Laughing?

How about crying?

What about at the same time?

Check out my contemporary romance, Baby & Bump....


At thirty years old, caterer Lexie Baump has a lot on her plate. With a business to run, she doesn’t have time for any added distractions. But one momentary indiscretion adds a little hiccup to Lexie’s plans. She’s pregnant. With no relationship prospects. 

But if Lexie thought fighting morning sickness while running a catering business was hard, enter Dr. Fletcher Haybee. Their connection is instant, and their love of vintage rock tee shirts and Elvis music is enough to bond them for life. There are just two minor problems. 

One: he’s dating her oversexed best friend. Two: he’s also her obstetrician. 

With events to cater, awkward OB appointments to endure, and her ever-growing baby bump making it impossible to close her jeans, Lexie has to find a way to curb her undeniable attraction toward Fletcher and focus on her new role as a working mother. But it certainly isn’t easy when its clear Fletcher himself feels the same magnetic pull toward Lexie. 

Can Lexie leave the gorgeous Fletcher for her best friend to chew up and spit out, or will she cave to her feelings and find love in the stirrups? Life is about to get messy, and we're not just talking about crumbs in the car seat...

Gratitude challenge: week 25

Can you believe I've made it this long??

Me either.

This week's topic: Education.

I guess the best way I could express gratitude for education is by openly wishing I had one. I mean, I don't have corks on my forks, or anything...



But I didn't finish college, and not a year has gone by since that I haven't regretted not applying myself in school and finishing it.

The idea of going back at 40 scares me too much. I could never do it.

So I push my kids.



I don't care whether it's a 4 year university, a community college, trade school, or online schooling. So long as they finish it and have the means to provide for themselves and their families, I'm happy as a clam.

I am very grateful for education.

What would you say....

If I told you about a book where the heroine is pregnant....



And she falls in love with her obstetrician....



Who has a fondness for Elvis....



Who is also dating her oversexed best friend?



Yeah. It's a mess. But it's also hilarious.

Gratitude Challenge, week 24.....

This week's prompt? (Oh, how I love this weeks...)

A book I've learned from.

Squeee! Love this one.

Actually, it's sort of difficult. Because honestly, I've learned from lots of books. Like...lots of books. Here are just a few of them:











Yeah. I told you. Lots.

But I would say this is the one that has had the most profound effect on me. At least in the last few years. When I read this, we'd very recently lost our daughter. And though our two stories aren't remotely similar...the author's experience profoundly touched me. If she could get through what she'd been put through, surely I could get through my loss. If her mother could survive her pain, surely I would survive mine. Her spiritual strength and faith were moving, and I strive to have faith like that in my own life.



I want to be like this woman. Which, I'm sure she would hate. (she seems to hate media attention--who can blame her?) But I do.

Anyhoo...this is the book I've learned from recently.

Buy it. You'll thank me.
