 PILOT HOUSE OF A STEAMSHIP - 1899

PILOT HOUSE OF A STEAMSHIP - 1899

Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas season and a happy, healthy 2016!

Since both of our family’s dogs recently had surgery (they are doing fine and recovering quickly), we could not board them and therefore had to remain home for the Christmas Holiday.  It turned out to be a blessing in disguise since we were able to have some wonderful, quiet days, hosting visits from some close friends and family members.  Christmas Day itself was spent at home with just the four of us: my husband, my two daughters, and me.  We opened presents, had breakfast (our younger daughter made us a cinnamon breakfast pastry that was a thing of beauty), and then took the dogs for a walk in a local park.  Mid-afternoon dinner was a relaxed affair, followed by some music-making (my husband is an excellent fiddler), and then watching some James Bond movies with family popcorn and candy.  A very enjoyable day.

Last weekend and this weekend, as we visited with friends and family members, it seemed that at some point during each visit, I ended up talking about how Frozen Voices is going to be published next year.  I guess I’m really excited about it!  This is literally a dream come true.  And everyone I talk to about FV is so encouraging and happy for me, it makes the experience that much more special.  I am so glad to be able to share this amazing journey with everyone and feel truly blessed.
