February is on its way out....

I do enjoy how the number of daylight hours continues to grow even though it means another month is slipping away. The sunlight gives me more energy. Though I’m already dreading when we ‘fall back’ in March. Loosing that hour always bothers me. 

We had a wonderful ‘cowgirl’ birthday party for our granddaughter yesterday.  Everyone was to come dressed as cowgirls and cowboys. Though it took some ‘dusting off’ of clothes hanging in the closet, Papa and I managed to attend in the requested style. 

Stop over at Sweethearts of the West for a bit of information about the love life of President Andrew Jackson and his wife Rachel. There’s also an excerpt from Inheriting a Bride and a chance to win a paperback copy. 

The class I’m teaching for Community Ed has been so much fun! My students are all writing very unique stories, and I’m learning as much as I’m sharing. 

My niece, who was married last summer, was featured in the local newspapers Wedding Showcase this week. I shed a tear reading the article. Such wonderful memories!

I’m deep into a new story. Set in Alaska during the great gold rush at the end of the 1800’s, I’m learning so much about what took place then and loving every minute of it. Herione Maddie is the daughter of an outlaw looking for a way to leave her past behind, and hero, Cole, self named Lucky, is looking for his future. They’re really butting heads right now. 

Embrace every day. You’ll be amazed by what’s happening!
