Refreshed and Relaxed!

We had a fantastic time away on vacation. We drove north...north...north (stopped in Sudbury to visit the "Big Nickel" for a night before heading north...north...some more. When we got to our remote destination, I went a little crazy not having any internet, tv or even cell phone service, but it gave me the opportunity to do a lot of writing and spend much needed time with the family.

The weather was absolutely perfect, and the water was clear and gorgeous.This was the view from our deck, and this is what I looked at over my laptop everyone morning and every evening as I sat down to write. I gave myself this time for writing mostly because hubby and kiddo would head out then to do some fishing :)


We spent a lot of time soaking in the sun and splashing around. Since we got home last night, the puppy hasn't moved. She's collapsed at my feet with complete exhaustion because we kept her so busy!


But it's still nice to come home again even when you've had nothing but fun and relaxation, and what did I receive from the postman when I arrived? Check it out, aren't they gorgeous??


So it seems I have a few unexpected, limited print copies of FALLING HARD ....which means I want to give them away!

Leave me a comment about your summer's vacation here on the blog to be entered. A winner will be selected on Friday!

I didn't go on a vacation. Haven't really had a vacation for a couple years actually. But I know when I do get the chance to get away, it's like coming down off of a major high for me. I'm usually feeling down for a few days until I get back into my usual routine. LOL

Sounds like you and your family had a great time! The view was certainly pretty. :)

Thank you so much for the giveaway opportunity!

I will be spending the first two weeks of September enjoying my cottage with my hubby. Overlooking a small lake close to Algonquin
Park, it is truly a piece of paradise!

With a brand new deck, I hope to spend some time catching up on my reading...it would be great to add yours to the pile!

My vacations are totally the cons I'm going to this year. (Still bummed out you couldn't come to Lori Foster's). Headed to AAD in NOLA next month, and then two more for the year. :-) Hopefully I'll see you at one of them.

We went to Port Elgin ON for our vacation and spent our days relaxing on the beach, reading and in the evening sitting enjoying a bon fire. Also, in the evenings, sat down at the beach and watching the sun sets with my hubby and my dog. Lizzie. Very relaxing and enjoyable.

I have the 3 early books and would enjoy a paper copy of this book.
