I’ve been a bit sparse here of late because I’ve been swamped with the holidays and trying to finish the next book, Mad About the Duke. But with the new book on the shelves—yes, how could you have missed the new book???—How I Met My Countess, I’ve made a few trips outside my usual soapbox here and have visited a few other blogs and would love for you to stop by and leave comments there and hint . . . hint . . . there giveaways over there. Yes, prizes for commenting.

So you’ll want to stop over at Romantic Crush Junkies and Book Talk with J & J if you want to be part of the action.

So now, I am off to bake a cake for someone’s birthday. I baked one for a funeral yesterday, so today I think I need to make one to celebrate another year of living. And thank you to all of you for making it so very heartwarmingly worthwhile to get up each day and do the one thing I’ve always wanted—write. As for me, I am taking today off. Twenty years ago today I met my husband. He was the best birthday present I ever got. So we are shipping the kids off to school and make a day of it. I tried to talk him into dueling manicures/pedicures, but he nixed that idea.

So, what would you do if you and your DH/SI/Partner-in-Crime had an entire day to go out and play hooky? And that’s hooky, not nooky. Gads, I can’t turn my back on you people for a second!

    If I had one day to play hooky I would love to go to the beach and enjoy the sound of the waves crashing against the shore or go for a nice picnic in the park. Thankfully my birthday is in the spring and not the dead of winter. Whatever you end up doing today it will be special because you are doing it together. Enjoy your day!

    First CONGRATULATIONS!!!! *_* 20 years! and Happy Birthday!

    and I agree with Tracy, a day at the beach. Living in France, I was picturing a day in Deauville with an over-night stay in the hotel Normandy.

    Happy Anniversary! Read and loved “How I Met my Countess” as I knew i would! Thank you again! Hope you had a great day! My DH and I would probably go sit in a coffee shop and talk or go explore a bookstore and have a good meal somewhere. We are both introverts.;)
    Thanks for the laughs!
