Not about books, but you can see how I funnel romance into my writing…

 How Shopping Correlates with Dating and Relationships

I love, love, love shopping…well, for almost anything! I can never be trusted with a credit card. 😉 Most of the time I resist temptation, but now and then, especially if I have some extra money on my hands, I indulge in one of my hobbies – shopping for clothes, or even books.

But whether you’re browsing online or in the store, shopping for clothing items is a whole other animal. At least with a book, you can be sure you will usually end up a satisfied reader. The only issue, for me at least, might be a bunch of glaring grammatical errors, or so much head-hopping that I get fictional whiplash.

Shopping for clothes, however, is a different story.

Book Lovers Tag

I talk about my reading preferences on the I Love Romance Blog…

I Love Romance Blog

Here’s a fun post for all. This is a Book Lovers Tag challenge. I came across this great tag over at D.G. Kaye Writer’s blog, where she invited anyone to join in. I thought it would be exciting to jump into the challenge, as besides being an author, I love reading romance novels (hence the blog’s namesake)! So, why not?

Do you have a specific place for reading?

Mostly, I read in bed, but now and then I cart one of my books to the living room or dining room and set up shop. And if I’m feeling really adventurous (this helps if we have pleasant weather, which is never a guarantee in Indiana), then I’ll sit outside on the patio and read to my heart’s content. 😉 Now and then, I actually read on the Kindle app on my tablet, but I’m more of a paperback/hardback kind of girl.

There are many benefits to being a book lover. Maybe we have an unhealthy compulsion to buy books. Maybe we have no surface space not claimed by random literary treasures. We may regularly suffer from book hangovers, but by gollie we:

“The Cat Came Back”

I had to share this incredibly inspiring story! And I love kitties so…

Maisie

Greetings and meows, dear peeps and pets!
Maisie here, guest hosting on Jennifer’s blog today.

I thought it was high time I shared a little “cat tale” with you from five years back.

It was the Fall of 2010 and my sister Vivian and I, both three years old, had recently moved around the bay to Newtown with Jennifer and Paul. Up until then, we’d been raised as indoor city cats who rarely went outside unless it was in the backyard under vigilant watch by our owners.

While our soon-to-be permanent home on Perry’s Point was undergoing restoration and renovations, our little family had to bide our time in Mike Perry’s summer-house over near Barbour Tickle. As the weeks passed and our owners grew eager and impatient to move to the Point, they told us that once we got there, we would have the freedom to…

“Blessed” – a poem

A new love poem!

I Love Romance Blog

Blessed

 

It’s beyond words what I feel for you,

but I always try to capture it.

I can only say I feel…

blessed.

wordblessed

The way you draw me close,

holding me tight,

I’ve never felt so safe with anyone else.

I can only feel…

blessed.

 tumblr_mq5s6a3UbO1rjajhdo1_500

The way you speak those words,

professing your love,

saying you’ll always take care of me,

I can only feel…

blessed to have you.

dil

Looking into your eyes,

a fascinating mix of brown and green,

the way you kiss me and my eyes drift closed,

I can only feel…

blessed.

couple-kissing-bed

When you smile at me or give me that gaze full of affection,

the way we work so well together,

even when we link hands and they fit so perfectly,

I can only feel…

blessed beyond measure.

thankujw

Our hearts,

our souls connect,

our bodies were made for each other.

I can only feel…
