Release Day for Love Finds You at Home for Christmas

It’s release day for Love Finds You at Home for Christmas and I’m so excited for y’all to read it!

There are 2 stories in the book–one historical and one contemporary. I wrote the historical, entitled Sweet Southern Christmas, and the fabulous Gwen Ford Faulkenberry wrote Small Town Christmas.

Our stories are related–the same family, just years apart.

Very fun!

Romantic Times Book Reviews gave it 4 stars and had this to say: Here is a wonderful book by two gifted authors. Both stories hold a common thread with the Hamilton family and the small-town feel of Arkansas. The book gives the reader a feel for true holiday sentiments, friendship and delightful romances.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year…

Well, it’s about that time! I LOVE Christmas. In fact, I even have a special Christmas section in my planner that starts in August and helps me make sure I do all the “Christmasy” things I want to do. Yep. I’m one of those kind of people. I like to do crafts (paint ornaments, make wreaths, etc.), bake (I’m having a marathon cookie bake tomorrow), and shop for just the right gift.

But this year, since all my belongings are in storage, I only pulled out my very favorite decorations. And rather than pull out my tall pre-lit tree from the storage building, I opted to put up 3 small pre-lit trees. Small, but still very festive.

I finally got my cards mailed out this week–I did photo cards this year. I couldn’t resist. Every card I got from my college friends was a photo card, usually featuring their small children. Since I don’t have any children to feature, I figured I’d put me and my dogs. And of course, me being me, I printed a few different cards just for some variety. I won’t actually post the cards, but see the pictures below!

Merry Christmas!
