Every story deserves a happily-ever-after.

…there you are.

And here I am! I officially “arrived” in my new town last Saturday night, and have spent the last few days doing… I’m not sure what. Oh, well, on Monday I wrote a blog post for the Rockville 8… on Tuesday I did some cleaning, shopping and cooking… Wednesday my husband and I went out driving and looking at the pretty sights… and today I’ve gotten a little writing in. So there, that’s been my exciting week.

I have to say, it feels bloody weird not to have a job to get up and go to every morning. The idea of working from home, writing full time, is  enticing but scary. It will involve that thing that I so sorely lack: discipline. (The very word makes me shudder!) But hopefully I will rise to the challenge, and take advantage of this opportunity. I know it’s a blessing to have this chance to really make a “go” of my writing, and I’m going to try not to waste it. The internet here can be a little spotty, but that’s probably a blessing too, as it helps keeps me off of social media (and away from Netflix)!

It’s been raining here for the past few days, so I haven’t had much of a chance to take pictures. But I did get in a few good shots, so I’ll share them with you now. Surrounded by so much beauty, I’m going to have to up my photo-taking game!

Deepest and never-ending gratitude to the men and women who serve. Our freedom is built on the foundation of their strength and fortitude.

“How important it is to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!” – Maya Angelou

Well hey, friends! Been a long time. Thanks for bearing with me while I’ve laboriously made over (and over, and over) my website! I hope you like the result. Of course, I’m going to keep tinkering with it (I’m a compulsive tinkerer), but generally speaking, this should be the end of re-designs for awhile. (Yay!)

There are a few other changes on the horizon. The biggest is that I’m moving at the end of October. Yes, I know, I moved last October (wrote a little about it here). And no, moving every year is not going to become a thing with me. (At least, I hope not! Or not until I get my tiny house on wheels: then I’ll be moving all the time! *smiles wistfully*)

Last year’s move was only a distance of three miles. This year’s change of residence is over a hundred miles: away from Northern Virginia, where I have dwelt lo these many moons, to the Shenandoah Valley, one of the most beautiful places on Earth. My husband has been working out there for the past two years; I’ve stayed where I am while my sister finishes her Master’s Degree. Now that she’s almost done with school, has a full-time job and a place of her own, it’s time for both of us (all of us) to travel onward to the next phase of our lives.

Lucky for me, the next phase will include a lot of writing! Including – *rubs hands together with glee* – a quartet of books set in Angel River, Kate’s hometown from Homesong, and a series of romantic suspense novels in the spirit of Her Secret Bodyguard and Her Badman Hero. I also have plans for collaborating with a couple of very talented writers who work in the in the realms of paranormal fiction and literary nonfiction, respectively.

In short, as 2015 winds down, and 2016 gears up, the road ahead looks lively and new. It won’t be without its pit-stops and potholes (is it ever?), but the change of scenery should be well worth it. Thanks for coming along for the ride! Hope you’ll stay with me for at least a little while longer.

I’ll write more soon (promise!). In the meantime, here are a few pictures from the beautiful place where I will be living:
