Celebrate Little Victories

Today I was scheduled to drive to Long Island for the Book Obsessed Chicks (BOC) 4th Annual BBQ on Lido Beach (link). Unfortunately, my husband's shift schedule is a challenge so I will have to cancel.  I am sad to miss Kimberly Rocha - she is the very definition of a romance enthusiast.   She is one of the creative forces behind MY BOOK CRAVE (link):

  4. You sure keep busy, Kim!!! Today we are celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary - going to a movie and dinner.

  5. I'm so excited that Robert Galbraith's new book is out.

  6. My little victory is while practicing for my yellow belt in martial arts, I realized that I know a lot more than I actually thought that I did. :D
    I am becoming confident in myself!

  7. I have a new fence. It is a thing of great beauty.
