I’ve seen it too. I don’t think you even see it in the other people around them sometimes. I think this woman did a good job of trying to build him up and show him love on Facebook, etc. he’s straight up wired wrong. Who could look at their children while choking the life out of them. I once had a crusty Marine pastor who lived in Africa. He told young pastors that your primary goal is to keep your family together. Because if you can’t do that, your witness is gone to the Africans they served. Sent from my iPhone

And what does this news article ask? Was he bitter over his wife's newfound success? Um, do we care? The man is a monster. This feeds into... Continue reading
I’m so sorry to hear that. For me with a weakened immune system, it lasted about five or six days. Sent from my iPhone
It’s hard when you are a parent she want to volunteer. But I won’t take it again either. Some of us are more sensitive than others. Sent from my iPhone
Okay, I just have to say as an ADD person, I do listen better when I'm doodling. I'm not sure if it's the same. : )
It counts if that's what you want to do on YOUR vacation. : )
It's really interesting how quickly that has become a pertinent part of our lives to the exclusion of actual connection. I hope we can bring back the old days a bit.

July 24, 2018 From Fresh Fiction: The Fresh Pick is chosen by a group of readers and is never a purchased advertisement or promotion. We've picked this book because it appeals to us and we like to share our diverse... Continue reading

Full disclosure: I'm a wee bit addicted to technology. I rarely go anywhere without my phone. I listen to podcasts when I hike, I listen to music at the gym, I wear an Apple watch that gives me notifications if... Continue reading
You know, I wasn't tempted by a handbag at ALL. I was so happy with the food and the company and the sights that "stuff" didn't tempt me. I bought a barrette in Orvieto and a pair of shorts in Stresa, and I was good. I got some great gifts for everyone. My favorite being a "hot priests" calendar for my BFF. (We grew up Catholic and begged a hot deacon not to go through with the priesthood at his ordination. LOL)
The only place that was awful was Florence. Otherwise, even with the pope in, Rome wasn’t that bad. Sent from my iPhone
Their wine also isn’t very strong and all the food is locally grown. Sent from my iPhone

I've been back from Italy for about ten days, but my heart is still there. The Italians keep the same schedule as me. They drink espresso like water -- even after a late dinner approaching midnight. Here in Silicon Valley,... Continue reading

I'm crushed to hear of the passing of legendary designer Kate Spade. From my first iconic cherry Sam bag to this latest desire, I love everything she designs. I just ordered a new phone case that couldn't be more me.... Continue reading
Haha thank you. It’s out again today. Elle is making cut offs. Sent from my iPhone

So while I was at the Romantic Times Booksellers' Convention this weekend in Reno, I met Kathleen Freeman. Oh my goodness, I just loved her. And I thought, how does this cool chick write Amish books? Aren't they all bonnets... Continue reading

If you haven't read "Split Ends" -- it's one of my readers' favorites even though it's a stand-alone and doesn't have accompanying "friends" book. Either way, it's only 99 cents, so for less than a latte, you can get my... Continue reading

Superman with Christopher Reeve was probably the last superhero movie I saw. I'm not a big superhero fan, but oh how I loved these two together. Their chemistry sizzled. I just watched it about two weeks ago and sadly, I... Continue reading

Southern Charm used to be my favorite show, but it's like watching a "Mad Men" parody. The men on this show are useless. We see none of them work (except maybe Whitney who disappears from the show and makes random... Continue reading
Okay, I have to give my love for Naomie here. Was she a mean girl? Heck yeah. Was she totally out of line? Completely. Bordering on abusive? Yes. But I still love her because she owns that she's a psycho ex girlfriend. I have to say, I don't feel too sorry for Peyton because she has to know what she signed up for when they liked her on "Relationshep" and gave her a job. Naomie has lost her ever-loving mind over Craig and I want to see her get it back. Just like I wanted to see Kathryn stop looking like a crazy person over T-Rav. The difference though, is I think Thomas CAUSED Katheryn's crazy behavior by playing mind games with her. I think Naomie's issues are all her own. Craig is effeminate. I love him, but he's never going to be the man she wants him to be. His hobby is sewing for crying out loud. And Cam says he's not even good at it. Craig needs ADD meds and to get a job. That's just my unsolicited opinion. I think Peyton would eat him alive too. If he's going to like strong women, he needs to up his game.

I think I signed the contract for this book at the end of 2015. It feels like an eternity passed until this day is finally here. It's just in time for summer and your frothy beach read. I'm celebrating with... Continue reading
It's no secret that I love me some "Southern Charm" -- but the last two episodes have left me with this icky, annoying feeling. First, there was last week opening with that bed scene with Thomas and his new child... Continue reading
