Empty Nesters

Yes, we are empty nesters once again. The baby birds are all grown up and off on their own. I took this picture on Tuesday and when the grandkids came to see them on Wednesday, the nest was empty. The kids were sad to see them gone, but had enjoyed watching the process. 
We had a fun and busy week with a family reunion with my father’s side of the family. It’s always so much fun to see those we haven’t seen in years and catch up on how everyone is doing. It’s also fun to meet in person all new additions to the family. 

On the writing side, I’m happy to announce The Mail Order Brides of Oak Grove released today in print! This is the first book in the Mail Order Brides of Oak Grove series. Several additional books will be released in 2017 and 2018!

Enjoy the upcoming long weekend!

The Robins at the Robinson's House

All four eggs hatched. (The last one hatched the day after I took this picture, but I feel bad disturbing Mama so I haven’t clicked another picture.) Our grandson dug a bunch of worms and ‘relocated’ them to the flower bed in front of the sauna so the Mama Robin could have easy pickings. Then, being four, he stood under the pine tree that she’d flown into waiting for her to go get the worms.  And was disappointed when it didn’t happen before he had to go home.

On the writing side…The first book in the Mail Order Brides of Oak Grove is coming soon! Kathryn Albright and I have had so much fun with this series! 

Sweet, sassy and double the trouble when twins Mary and Maggie sign contracts to become mail-order brides with every intention of escaping before the actual wedding!

Be kind, be happy, be yourself!
