On the First Day of Christmas…
Welcome to my blog. During this month of holiday celebration, be sure to stop by and leave a comment every Monday and Friday until December 20th. Every blogger will be giving away a free book during this first month.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking another blog. Another place someone wants me to stop and leave a comment. What makes for an interesting blog? Tell me what keeps you coming back to visit someone’s commentary on the world as they know it?
I’m hoping to give you short snippets of books that I’ve published, but also what I’m working on. This will be the place to see cover reveals, find out where I’ll be and just a place to hang. Oh yeah and I’ve been told I’m kind of opinionated, so I’ll try to keep that in check. Mainly I want to talk books, fun and occasionally sexy fun.
Today is my wedding anniversary. Nineteen years ago today, Don and I were married at Little Chapel of the West in Las Vegas, Nevada. Yes, we snuck off and went to Vegas and had a great wedding. If I had a choice, I would do it all over again.
This was a second marriage for both of us, so we didn’t want a big wedding, but we didn’t want to just go to the justice of the peace. So we went to Vegas and had a nice ceremony that took all of fifteen minutes, where you paid for every little thing.
So today to kick off my new blog and to celebrate my anniversary, I’m giving away three copies of The Christmas Bride.
Tell me what was your wedding like? Was it fun, memorable, beautiful or awful? There are wedding horror stories out there. Tell me about your big day. Everyone who leaves a comment will be entered into the drawing.

I had a nice, normal wedding, but it was not fun. I was too worried about every detail being perfect to enjoy myself.
Hi Kim, my first wedding was kind of like that. I remember feeling rushed and worried about all the little details. Once I had the hotel arranged it was fun. But the rodeo finals are always the first week of December in Las Vegas and I had a hard time finding a hotel room. We stayed at the old Aladdin, which has since been torn down and rebuilt.
Happy anniversary, Sylvia! I had a nice, normal wedding with Handsome. Pretty dress, bridesmaids (sisters), groomsmen (brothers), and great cake!
Sounds like fun Vicki!! You and Handsome have been married for many happily wedded years.
We slipped away to Vegas and got married. We had a blast ‘running’ away (after telling our families, of course). No expectations from others to worry about…the day was just about the two of us starting a journey together.
Hey Barb, You are so right we have a lot in common!! Where were you married in Vegas? We were married at Little Chapel of the West. It was so much fun going downtown and getting our marriage license and seeing all the sights down there. It’s all about the journey and some of us get there in a different way than the rest and that’s what makes the world an interesting place.
We had a buffet brunch & the food was excellent! It was small for a LI,NY wedding – around 70 people. It was probably the last time I got my husband to dance! 22 years & counting!
Hi Sharlene, It sounds like a wonderful wedding. Twenty-two years is a long time. My husband and I met taking dance lessons. We use to go dancing all the time, but now we’re just an old married couple.
Happy Anniversary! I am divorced and have been for a while now. Still doing the single thing. But when I did get married we had a small simple wedding. I was pregnant with my little man and didn’t want to wear a HEAVY dress so it was all pretty simple.
Happy anniversary! No story to tell
Sharlene Wegner, Kim V and BN100 you won the free book!! I don’t have your email address, so please in touch with me. You’ve won The Christmas Bride!
