What was the one experience that completely changed your life? What happened? How did it change your life?


Cocoa, candy canes and cookies for all!

Cocoa, candy canes and cookies for all!

write meg!


As you read this, I’m probably three sheets to the wind on hot cocoa and readying myself for a very fun, family-filled holiday.

Whether you’re visiting from near or far, in summer or winter, with a candy cane or without, I’m wishing you a very happy holiday and extending a warm, heartfelt merry Christmas to you and yours.

I’ll be back soon with my end-of-the-year “best of” reading list — always a personal favorite! — and new book reviews! After, you know, I’ve actually read some books. My mind has been everywhere but on novels recently, but I’m hoping that will change soon. I’ll give you the latest on wedding plans and photos from the holiday, too.

Santa hugs and cookies to all, and to all a good night!
