Sunday Six

From The Notorious Lady Anne (release date 2/11/2013)

He was insufferable, dictatorial, sometimes rude, with a sense of entitlement that being a prisoner would never banish.

He had dark blue eyes that saw too much and well-formed lips too quick to offend.

And yet, she was drawn to this irresistible, irritating, irrational man who willingly left his warm bed to help her tend a man he believed was already condemned to a watery grave.

“Emmaline.”

Her head jerked up and she quickly wiped the tears from her face.

Kitchen, Graduation, Editor meetings and Summer. Life as usual…

I’ve been absent for a few days. Okay, more than a few–more like ten. I’m so, so sorry. Life has been crazy and here are a few reasons why:

The kitchen remodel is finally finished!!! So I’ve been painting. Except we picked a color, began painting, realized we hated the color and had to start all over again. Blech. But the good news is that we love the second color we picked and the entire mess, er, project is complete.

Just in time for….

My beautiful daughter’s high school graduation. Oh, my. What a whirlwind weekend this has been. Graduation was beautiful and very, very emotional for me. I cried, I smiled, I cried some more. Then my lovely husband leaned over in the middle of the ceremony with tears in his eyes and said, “Remember when we sent her off to kindergarten.” That was all it took for me to really cry. But we’re so proud of her and a little relieved that she will be living at home while going to college. I’m not ready to let go just yet.

As if this past weekend wasn’t filled with enough festivities, on Friday I got to meet the wonderful Sue Grimshaw who just happens to be my editor at Random House. We had a lovely chat and talked about books, family, hobbies, books, books and more books.

So today is the first day of summer for the Cullen family. I’m still recuperating from the weekend, but plan on getting back to my blogging schedule.

Happy summer, everyone!!!
