Hello all!
Welcome to summer! I hope your Friday is excellent!
So, now that THE DARK STAR is out I can relax and enjoy work on the third in the series. I have four whole months of non promotion space here on the blog, so I thought why not get back to some posts Wishing For Horses style?

How about some recipes, book reviews, travel/packing, and craft projects? I could also dust off and post more of the Meet a Blogger series? Yeah?

To start let me share a very special summer time recipe! This comes from my husband, it’s our favorite cocktail.
