Summer Days Gone By

Alas, another summer has come and gone. Here in Georgia, the children have been back in school for over a month and everyone is bemoaning the heat and eager for autumn to arrive. Not me. I’m a summer girl and still in mourning for the passage of yet another season. I refuse to believe that Christmas is only 110 days away.

I had a wonderful summer, one filled with family, friends, travel, wonderful meals, and so many good books. It flew by, it really did. I enjoyed myself. I relaxed. I slept. I daydreamed. I contemplated my present and future and I finally made a few decisions I’d been putting off. Continue reading Summer Days Gone By

Mary Kay Andrews, My Kids, Gronk & Summer Plans

Hey There! Popping in with a quick post about this and that.

First, I have another book giveaway, which I personally always think is exciting! I had the privilege of reading an advance copy of Mary Kay Andrew’s latest novel, The High Tide Club. Y’all know I’m a huge MKA fan. Last year I got to interview her for a Books of My Life post and I was invited to her book launch party (she lives in Atlanta). Thanks to her publicist, I have a copy to giveaway. All you have to do is leave a comment below. Keep reading though, after my brief review, I have other stuff to share.


36336690When ninety-nine-year-old heiress Josephine Bettendorf Warrick summons Brooke Trappnell to Talisa Island, her 20,000 acre remote barrier island home, Brooke is puzzled. Everybody in the South has heard about the eccentric millionaire mistress of Talisa, but Brooke has never met her. Josephine’s cryptic note says she wants to discuss an important legal matter with Brooke, who is an attorney, but Brooke knows that Mrs. Warrick has long been a client of a prestigious Atlanta law firm.

Road Trip Reunions

Over the years I’ve written a lot about my love of travel and the benefits of embarking on our epic (in my mind) family road trips each summer. I have insatiable wanderlust! One of the things that fuels my desire is that we get to visit family and friends on our trips. I’ve lived in many places, and of course we live in a time when people move often and far, for work or school. My friends are spread out from sea to shining sea. I also have a really tough time letting people go. I’m pretty good at keeping in touch, and my Christmas card list is long (and distinguished, lol). I often joke that that once you’re on my list – it’s tough to get off it. Continue reading Road Trip Reunions

A Currently Post for April


Happy Spring!

As I’m sure many of you know, April is Autism Awareness Month. Shame on me, as it is April 12th and I have not shared a single blog post this month! The new job has been a bit of a time suck, and then we had spring break (more on that below). Slowly I’m getting back into the game and will have quite a few posts in the next couple of weeks. Please be patient with me if you get more email update notices than usual, it’s just an April phenomenon – I promise.

I have three Autism Angel posts coming up, as well as a new essay I wrote about autism. I submitted it to a bigger site, since it’s Autism Awareness Month – fingers crossed that it gets accepted. If not, I’ll post it here. In the meantime, here’s a list of the more popular posts I’ve written about autism over the last three years: Continue reading A Currently Post for April
