Dear, goodness, if I never see mountains again, it will be too soon! Fall has hit early in Colorado, and the leaves are already changing to vibrant orange, yellow, and red. There is even snow capping the peaks at higher elevations and blocking out the view of your windshield as we cross over the range. It’s an eerie feeling driving over a snowy mountain in a state that doesn’t believe in guardrails.
The ride back to Denver over the mountains is bittersweet. I’m so happy to be going home, but leaving my newly wedded friends two thousand miles away hurts me. I have the curse of waking up entirely too early after a night of partying, so the morning of our departure, we pack up and hit the road for our five hour drive back to Denver. It makes me sad not to be able to say goodbye, but the memories of the night before will be all I need to carry me through until next time.
It was my second time off the East coast. My first time in Colorado and it’s time zone. My first time to the Rockies and seeing the Rio Grande. The furthest from home I have ever been. The longest time away from my daughter I have ever spent.
And the biggest moment of my best friend’s life thus far, getting married.
It was a huge trip full of amazing experiences and moments to remember for the rest of our lives, but as our flight lands, I am so happy to be home!
I can’t wait to see my little girl and feel her little arms and legs wrap around me in the biggest monkey hug her little body can give me! I can’t wait to hear that little voice and see that sweet smile when we pick her up and bring her home! Anticipation is driving me nuts!
One week people! In less than one week, we will have the next season of GOT!
I’m over the moon excited! I cannot wait for the continuance of this series as I have so many questions, and so much anticipation for what is to become of these characters. Let’ be honest, I think we all want to know what is going to happen between House Baratheon/Lannister versus House Stark and maybe House Targaryen, but it may very well be versus, too. Not to mention the looming White Walker battle! So much to cover, so much giddiness! Hurry up!!
All the while, I’m also silently agitated that this season is only going to be seven episodes! What the actual eff?! How are they going to fit everything in that will need to be covered as the pre-face to the FINAL SEASON in seven episodes?! There will not be any time for filler or facial expression captures. It is going to have to be BAM, BAM, BAMMM!! Action, movement, continuous scenes driving the story forward in order to capture everything they will need to in order to bring some type of closure to the series.
All I am going to say is, they better not end it how they ended Black Sails because I couldn’t even bring myself to write about it. I want real closure, real fictional justice and a happily ever after. Do not give me this open ended crap! Like what happened to Madi? Who took possession of the island? Close the darn series, and let me live my life without questioning what is going to happen to Jon or Daenerys!
Sorry, bringing back my sanity now. Stupid Black Sails..
I will be posting weekly about the episodes in hopes that we can get through this maddeningly short season together. I can only image we will be left with more questions than answers, but by golly, at least we will have each other!
New season of Game of Thrones to begin July 16 on HBO.

The Alyeska Ski Resort and Spa near Anchorage, Alaska is known for its beautiful mountains, relaxing environment, and delicious dining, but for Kayleigh Wilson, a trip to the frozen tundra was meant to offer so much more. After a past full of pain, she lived her life based on how little she had to feel, so when her brother offered a weekend trip to the resort where no one even knew her name, she jumped at the opportunity. For Kayleigh, this trip was exactly what she needed to put herself back in the game of dating and romance, but she never planned on meeting a man who could actually alleviate her past and allow her to experience every emotion she had shut off so long ago. Benjamin Thomas, the man who awakens her heart from hibernation, is full of his own pain, but in his mind, some secrets are better left unshared. As Kayleigh faces her past and confronts Ben’s, she fights to keep herself from falling back into the darkness of unfeeling, but it may be at a price she isn’t willing to pay.

Another week closer to the release of my latest novel, and I’m getting so anxious! I’m not one to rush the holidays, but the sooner December gets here, the sooner Alyeska is yours.
I’ve been thinking lately about how long it has been since my last release and all that has happened between The Shoreline and Alyeska. It has been a long time coming for me to complete another book, but with a growing family and full time career, I am happy to say that this one took its sweet time to develop into the gem I am dying to push out to you. It finally came together, and all the pieces it took to finish this puzzle have fallen into place save one. THE RELEASE DATE!
OK, I can’t take it anymore. This week, I’m giving you a sneak peek into this wintery romance, just so you get a taste of the excitement coursing through my veins. This quick glimpse into Kayleigh’s journey to Alyeska Ski Resort and Spa will be the last straw you need to reach my level of eagerness. Get ready, darlings. You’re in for one steamy ride!
