I'll admit to being just a little bit excited....ok, who am I kidding....a whole lot excited! Like, over the moon excited!
What's happening that would have me in such a state, you ask? Can you get a hint from the color of ink I chose?
Tomorrow night by this time our family should be welcoming a new granddaughter into the world. Kate Isabelle Ferrell is due to arrive tomorrow as they've decided to induce delivery. Our son and his lovely wife live about 2 1/2 hrs away, so it will depend on how late in the day the blessed event happens as to whether we make the trip tomorrow or Monday. We don't want to tire our daughter-in-law too much if she has a long day of it and is exhausted.
I'll post on Monday evening or Tuesday with the news, the stats and best of all, pictures! I hope you'll rejoice with me as I enter a new phase in my life--one I've been looking forward to for a long time--one of my kids presenting me with a child of their own. It doesn't get much better than that.

Swept Away by Mary Connealy--This One is a Keeper!
This is my first book by Mary Connealy. Let me preface by saying I wasn't sure if it would be something I'd enjoy. I'd heard reviewers in the past say Mary's style is romantic comedy and that doesn't fit with what I typically enjoy.
I was wrong.
The characters were wonderfully drawn and strong, and the story was interesting, not silly, with touches of humor that I could thoroughly relate to and enjoy. I LOVE historical novels set in the old west, and a romance makes it even better. I enjoyed everything about this book and will definitely be looking for others by this author from now on.
I would highly recommend this book.
