When: This past weekend. Left early on Friday, drove ten and a half hours (darn traffic!) and returned late Sunday.
Where: Fayetteville, N.C.
Supplies: Mini Oreos, Twizzlers, Cheetos. Lots of CDs.
Who: Me, Mr. W, Son # 2, and Baby Girl
Why: To visit son #1 at his new home: Fort Bragg. And to meet his new fiancee. That's right-- son #1 is getting married! No idea when, but the proposal happened a few weeks ago, and we were thrilled to get to meet our future daughter-in-law (so strange to say that!), who is also a soldier. They're very cute together and very happy. Was able to actually go inside the barracks and see his room--great to put a visual to where he's living now. Cannot believe how big Fort Bragg is. It has three zip codes! Huge. Just huge.
It was a quick trip, but we had tons of fun. It's always great to have the whole family together--something I never ever take for granted anymore. And even though the rides were long, those are times to cherish, too. Even when stuck in (darn) traffic.
It's going to be a busy week--I'm working on the first Love Potion Shop mystery, trying to tackle some home projects that I've been putting off, also working on the print version of Trouble Under the Tree (coming soon!), and I WILL dig a book out of my TBR pile and lose myself in it (it's been much too long).
I wanted to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who's read Perfectly Matched over the last two weeks. The response has been incredible, and I couldn't be happier at all the wonderful feedback I've received. Big, big, big thank you! (Btw, the print edition should be ready by June 15th!)
Wishing you all a wonderful week! What are you reading? Have anything to recommend to me?
