Dean and I are spending the day with my parents, and I am so excited to see them! I haven’t seen them in almost a year. First, though, we had a whirlwind tour of Walt Disney World (during a monsoon!). Please excuse the poor picture quality, but this is a shot of the new FROZEN Christmas display at the Contemporary Resort. It’s made of CHOCOLATE! I love the cute character designs and their happy expressions. This is my favorite holiday display this year.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for stopping by to read my posts. I’m also thankful for my family and my friends, and for the happy circumstances that landed Poppy and Bumble into our lives. Every day with them is a joy, watching them interact with their world and each other – I am blessed to have them.
What are you doing today? What are you most looking forward to as you celebrate the day?

Kicking off the holiday reading season, I picked up Can’t Wait by Jennifer Ryan because I liked the cover and because it has one of my favorite tropes. I can’t get enough stories with the heroine falling for her brother’s best friend. The setting didn’t hurt either; all of the action takes place on a ranch in Montana. While Montana would not be my first choice if I were to ever relocate (the winters last forever!), the whole ranch thing is so appealing to me that it makes me giddy. Working with and around horses all day long seems so much better than herding IT professionals on a daily basis. Read more

THE PERFECT HOLIDAY ROMANCE TO CURL UP BY THE FIRE
BY WINTER’S LIGHT
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Stephanie Laurens
Returns to Scotland and the Cynster Clan!
Combine romantic Scotland, the boisterous Cynster family, and a wintry storm, and you have the perfect recipe for a wonderful Christmas love story.
When all the members of the Cynster family gather together at Casphairn Manor for merriment and holiday tidings, they bring with them their faithful minders and teachers; including Daniel Crosbie, and Claire Meadows. Having met before, Daniel is determined this visit will allow him to show hesitant Claire that just because she is a widow, does not mean that love doesn’t strike twice.
Assisted by the younger generation of Cynsters, all aspiring matchmakers, together with the help of a wintry storm and unforeseen circumstances, BY WINTER’S LIGHT Claire begins to see Daniel for the worthy partner he would be.
Stephanie Laurens returns to her beloved Cynster clan with BY WINTER’S LIGHT. With all six families together for the holidays, she ushers in a new generation of Cynsters.
Combining love, holiday spirit, and a little bit of magic, Laurens once again weaves a tale that shows that true love can withstand anything life—or mother nature—throws at you.
