Happy Sunday everyone! What a week it’s been! My Daddy turned the big 5-0 this week so Liam and I headed home for a few days of visiting. In fact as you are reading this I am more than likely driving home to see my husband who we left since he had to work 😉 Overall it was an awesome week. It’s always nice to be home, no matter how old I get.  My sweet grandparents came up for a visit while we were here and I do believe my son wore them out! He loves his Granny and Grandaddy and you they don’t love him or anything 😀

With Christmas around the corner I’ve been feeling crafty and making things like crazy. (I’ll share a few next week.) Liam got to see Santa last week and I wanted something to put his picture in to display every year, so made that. I’m making some stockings because ours are very old and starting to fall apart, also a stokcing holder. No fireplace for us so we need something to hang on the wall, and my crafy dad is helping me with that.

I’ve been on a bit of a reading binge too. I finished the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy this week and needed something so I wouldn’t be depressed. As a result I’ve read three books in three days. Needless to say sleep has suffered and they aren’t too long 😆 I’ll share a few next week. What have you been up to this week?

Book Cover for "Hope Rising (Of Love and War, #2)" by Stacy Henrie

FROM A GREAT WAR, SPRINGS A GREAT LOVE In France at the height of World War I, American nurse Evelyn Gray is no stranger to suffering. She’s helped save the life of many a soldier, but when she learns her betrothed has been killed, her own heart may be broken beyond repair. Summoning all her strength, Evelyn is determined to carry on-not just for herself and her country, but for her unborn child. Corporal Joel Campbell dreams of the day the war is over and he can return home and start a family. When a brutal battle injury puts that hope in jeopardy, Joel is lost to despair . . . until he meets Evelyn. Beautiful, compassionate, and in need of help, she makes an unconventional proposal that could save their lives-or ruin them irrevocably. Now, amidst the terror and turmoil of the Western Front, these two lost souls will have to put their faith in love to find the miracle they’ve been looking for.

  1. I’m loving that cover for Love Like Crazy! I wish I had caught it when it was free. Oh well. I’ll be interested to see what you think of it when you read it. I really enjoyed Cruel Beauty. I hope you like that one. I just got the second book in the series for review a couple weeks ago and I’m looking forward to reading it (hopefully) soonish.

    My Sunday Post!
