Year in Review!

At the start of a new year it's good to look back at the year that just ended and remember the high points.

One of the high points of 2011 was that Hubby and I took two trips related to his work. One was only a three and a half hour drive away, but we stayed at a lovely beach cottage and met a lot of wonderful people. The other trip involved a plane ride (the first time we'd been on a plane in more than a decade). This trip was to a city we both were familiar with so it was a lot of fun. Both trips were weekend excursions but we enjoyed them quite a bit.

I even went to my 30th high school reunion. How the heck did that much time go by so fast? I'll never know. It was fun, but strange. I haven't kept in touch with anyone from my high school days. Some people looked exactly the same, while there were others I never would have recognized if they weren't wearing a name tag.

I also reconnected with an old friend this past summer after several years of no contact. It was wonderful to spend time with him and his family. There are no friends like old friends. You have so much history together. He was actually the one who introduced hubby and me, for which I will always be grateful.

Career wise, 2011 was a fabulous year:

That's a total of 7 new ebooks and 6 print books in 2011, including my first book for Carina Press (The Gift of Shayla) and my first historical (Lady's Minstrel, a Quickie for EC).

I'm looking forward to a wonderful 2012. I'd like to find a better balance in my life, get a little healthier and try something new just for the hell of it.

Hope your 2012 has gotten off to a wonderful start and that the year brings you everything good life has to offer!
