Here's to a Brighter and Happier New Year!
Happy New Year! Don't you just love his smile?? So Sexy!
I know I'm a couple of days late in posting this phrase, so I apologize for it's tardiness. For the past couple of weeks, Chris and I have been homebodies. We did go out to eat on New Years Eve, but otherwise we celebrated it at home together quietly. Neither one of us really wanted to go out this year. 2009 was a very difficult year for both of us, and both of us were ready to see the New Year start.
I want to take a moment and thank all of my friends who have left me a thoughtful message about the loss of Daisie. That meant the world to me. It's been very hard for us to come to grips with, but we're getting better. I still have moments that I forget that she's gone and I look for her. Those are the worst because then reality sinks in and I remember that she's gone. We've decided to look into adopting a sheltie who needs a good home. Both of us are missing our girl, and we think this will be a good way for us to cope with her loss. Thank you again, for your compassion, friendship and support. It means a lot to me and I'll never forget it.
Now on a more positive note, I'm getting ready to start writing again. I've taken a couple of weeks off, and I'm just about ready to get back on the horse, so to speak. I'm not sure which story I'll work on first, but I'll know more once I get started on it.
In the past few days I've read some great books. The Best Gift by Shawn Lane was great! I fell in love with one of the heroes...Malcolm is such a sweetheart! Whew! he's so sexy and humanly complicated. God, I loved him! Let's all pray that Shawn will continue to grace us with updates on her lovable characters. I'm hoping she might even continue Malcolm and Dusty's story someday. I would love to see how everything comes together for them.
Shawn is still the best at writing about characters that I absolutely fall for. If you haven't read The Best Gift yet, do yourself a favor and read it! It started my New Year off great!
I also read Silver and Gold by Devon Rhodes. I've been following Devon's blog now for a few weeks and I'm always entertained by it. She's very personal and favors us with lots of sexy Eye Candy when she can. I really enjoyed Silver and Gold. Abe was a scene stealer to me. So cute and sexy! I know Devon had a blast writing about him! I'm hoping that she's going to write more about Abe and Geoff...surely she wouldn't tease us with that short novella about them!
Here's to everyone having a great week! I know that better times are ahead for all of us! See you soon!
