FRIENDS

I really, really want to dance in a fountain with my girls. Y’all know what I’m talking about: The opening credits to that wonderful, iconic TV show FRIENDS. Three guys, three girls. Dancing, playing, having fun.

Some weeks ago I was enjoying conversation with my Mississippi bestie, whom we’ll call SuperGirl, and my Georgia bestie, whom we’ll call Paige. Yes, that Paige, of Paige’s Plantation Part One.

“The more we work to help others,
the more we begin to enjoy the life we’re living.”

I raised my heavy-lidded gaze from the laptop screen and the quote on the coffee cup stared back at me. Like I really have time!

My eyes shifted to the blinking light on the phone, the sure indication that yet more messages were waiting for me.

I turned my phone so I could … read the rest. . .

FIVE THINGS FRIDAY: Finding the Write Gift

On this week’s upcoming Firsts in Fiction podcast, we’re talking about that very subject. Over the last week, we (and by we, I mean Aaron, Al, and myself, along with our merry media elves) have posed this question:

HOLIDAY GIFT BASKET GIVEAWAY: The Essence of Chocolate

Y’all know how I love my chocolate, right? I know. You love it, too. But I didn’t really love chocolate until I won this great Holiday Gift Assortment from Scharffen Berger last year.
And thus began my greatest Love Affair with chocolate. [I’m very pleased to announce we’re still on our honeymoon!].

This summer, Scharffen Berger sponsored a giveaway for these delectable Artisan chocolate bars. Who can forget Wendy’s excitement when she won?

“Maybe one of my favorite days ever! Look what came in the mail !”

I’ve spent the better part of the last year finding ways to enjoy … read the rest. . .
