I have a house full today. My father and stepmother are staying with us for the rest of the week. My mother and stepfather, sister and brother-n-law, nephews, and daughter's boyfriend are all here to spend a few hours with us on this blessed Christmas Eve. I wanted to take a quick break from the Holiday madness to wish those of you who celebrate it a Very Merry Christmas! I hope that you all have a wonderful holiday with friends and family and Celebrate life to it's fullest.
We are going to take a ride out to Petit Creek Farms to view the holiday lights from the car and probably hit a few neighborhoods as well. This is one of my favorite times of year. The only thing missing is the snow. Yes I said snow. I hate the cold, and the snow even more, but this is the only time of year that I really wish I had a blanket of it in my front yard. I love all of the beautiful lights that sparkle throughout the night, the Christmas Carols, and just spending time with my family. This is the first year in several years that I have had all of them in one spot, and better yet in the same house (even if I need a bottle of wine to calm my nerves...lol). I am truly blessed this Christmas and can only hope and pray that all of you are as blessed as I am.
The books that I review on this blog have, in most cases, been purchased from bookstores or I have received through contest wins. In the event that I have a book that has been given to me free of charge from the author or publisher in any way other than winning it in a contest I will place a label to that affect with the actual review. I place my thoughts on books on my blog to share with other avid readers, and gain nothing more than the enjoyment of sharing the love of books with other like minded readers.
If a link to the author's website or a buy link for any book should appear anywhere on my blog it is there strictly for convenience. I do not receive any monetary gains by placing these links on my blog.
