Heartwarming Small-Town Romances and Thrilling Mysteries

Another Trip to Pierre

Hubby grew up in the small town of Pierre (pronounced peer), the state capital of South Dakota. The town of 14,000 (now) lies in the middle of the state along the Missouri River that marks the boundary between farm country and ranch country, East River and West River state politics, Central Time and Mountain Time […]

Aggieland Adventure

It happened again, but this time it was much better. Hubby and I attended a Texas A&M football game in Kyle Stadium in College Station. Last year, it was cold and rainy and miserable. This year was the opposite: sunny, warm, and lovely. We had a total blast! Last year, we attended the midnight yell […]

Gone South for the Winter (Almost)

Hubby and I made the trip south this past week. I won’t say it’s for the winter because we have to return to our northern home for a couple of weeks in December for meetings and doctors’ appointments. After that, we should be completely south for the winter. Last year while we were in Amarillo, […]

A Trip Back in Time

Last year, my two brothers, my sister, and I traveled to Gettysburg, Harpers Ferry, Appomattox, and Manasses battlefields. We called it the First Annual Siblings Trip, not knowing at the time whether it would an annual event or not, but it sounded hopeful. As it turned out, we all enjoyed it so much that we […]

Books and Salt Water

Earlier this month, I was blessed to spend a week with my extremely busy daughter aboard Royal Caribbean’s Voyager of the Seas. She had never been on a cruise, and I had only been on one to Alaska. I didn’t know what to expect in the Gulf of Mexico, especially considering there were still reports […]

It’s Fall 2023, Y’all!

Where has this year gone? Winter sped by. Spring was a flurry, and summer blew by like a whirlwind. Three quarters of 2023 over. The leaves are turning here, and football is on TV. That means it’s time for cooler temperatures and shorter days. I don’t like that last thing, but because it’s been happening […]

Cody, Wyoming and Romance Writers

If you’ve never been to Cody, Wyoming, you should plan a trip there. It’s a charming city with a lot ot see and do. Hubby and I were there for several days earlier this month (August 2023) for the Cody Romance Roundup, a book signing event, and we had a blast. As you know from […]

A Trip to Oregon

Time with family is always precious, and our trip to Oregon included lots of it. For three days, both of our children and grandchildren were together, something that is increasingly rare. Knowing that tends to make our time together even more special and appreciated. Hubby and I flew this time, using our frequent flyer miles […]
