New Year’s Resolutions!


The Viking refuses to make New Year resolutions. A ton of people feel the same way. I don’t. I always make one—only one—resolution each new year. For me, making a resolution is an easy method of changing my lifestyle.

Last year’s resolution was to drink no more than one cup of coffee a day. Not only did I keep it, but I’m now at the point where I’m drinking herbal tea instead of coffee about three days a week.

When I told the Viking what my 2016 resolution was, he groaned. In 2016, I want to explore my local roots. That means I want to get to know Florida better. Here’s a list of the places and things that I want to do:

  1. Visit Dustin (rated as the best beach city in the U.S.).
  2. Go to Daytona—for the races obviously.
  3. Take a tour of ‘lake and wine’ country in central Florida.
  4. Spend some time in the Keys.
  5. Explore Sanibel Island.
  6. Have fun in St. Augustine (ok, to be truthful, I’ve done this city at least 4 times, but I loooove it, so why not?).


Do you make New Year’s resolutions? What are yours?


Merry Monday!

A Snoopy Merry Christmas!

Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love buying presents and I love giving them. So 10 random people from my new release subscriber list will get a gift from me between now and the New Year!

It’ll be something from Amazon that won’t involve shipping fees. It may be one of my books or a song or a movie. If you’ve listed your favorite decadent pleasure, it might be that instead!!!


So here’s hoping everyone has a wonderful holiday. I won’t be posting regularly – just to announce the winners and their gifts – until after December 30th as my wayward one has a birthday on December 29, and he’ll be in town with his fiancée, so I’ll be spoiling him rotten!

My very best wishes for a warm, friends and family filled Christmas!
