First, let me be up front, I’m not a winter type of gal. It’s my least favorite season. By now, I’m sure everyone heard about the snowpocalypse that hit Buffalo last week. When I see pictures of all that snow it makes me shudder.Crazy!
In my little corner of New York, we’ve only received one light dusting so far. That I can handle. But since winter is inevitable, I tried to come up with five things I do look forward to about this season. I only came up with three (sorry!):
***My kids’ excitement when it snows. They love it (can they really be mine?). My husband will take the snow blower and plow a maze in the backyard for them to run around in—and they have a blast. I love watching them play.
***The holidays. For my family, we’re looking forward to Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Each year we host a sleepover kiddie New Year’s Eve party for our kids, niece and nephews. It’s a fun night of silliness and karaoke.
***Hot chocolate. What better way to spend those I’m-not-going-out-in-that days, than sitting on the couch drinking hot chocolate and reading a good book.
If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?
~Percy Bysshe Shelley
I’m sure she means this in a more philosophical,“light at the end of the tunnel” way, but it seems an appropriate reminder that nothing lasts forever—including winter. :)
Rachel Turner made a mistake—a couple, in fact. Ruining a surprise meeting with the front man to her favorite band is just the beginning. But agreeing to switch places with her famous sister may spell the end of both of their careers. With rumors flying and an unexpected invitation from Madame Eve, Rachel hopes she can put the mistakes behind her.
Attending an event to support a charity close to his heart, Mark Travis wasn’t looking for love, or even company—and definitely not with a fan. But when he puts in a hasty bid at a silent auction and wins the services of 1Night Stand, Madame Eve has something different in mind. A single evening with a woman she claims can fulfill his needs. But one night might not be enough.
Come morning, will Mark and Rachel’s unexpected one-night stand give them more than they bargained for?
