How I Spent My Summer Vacation Blog Hop

My Summer Vacation

This summer my sister, my mom and I drove from Arizona to Iowa for my mom’s sixty-seventh high school reunion (there were 25 of them there!) and a family reunion.  In West Liberty, Iowa, I have a slew of cousins (as my mom had fifteen brothers and sisters) which I had not seen in MANY years.

Let me say my family is pretty close, but I was a touch concerned about being in a car for three day up and three days back and four days sharing a hotel.  But all my fears were for not.  We talked, laughed, and told stories the whole time.  My mom found out so many things we did as teens that I’m sure she wished she didn’t know.  Visiting with my relatives was a treat.  I had forgotten just how funny my cousins are.

This summer trip was all about family and one I will cherish for a long time to come!

I have four romances I have written, one family drama, and many kids' stories.  You can look to the right of my blog and see all that I have written or go to  One chosen commenter can choose any of the stories I have written in ebook form.  Be sure to check out the rest of the authors involved and get into the rafflecopter.  A $50 amazon card could be yours!!!

  1. Sounds like it was a great trip. Glad it went well.

  2. It really did Susanne. My mom is 85 so I need to spend as much time with her as I can. thanks for stopping!

  3. How delightful that you were able to spend that one-on-one time with your mother, as well as catch up with relatives. Sounds like fun! I spent my summertime close to home, but my husband and I did make a couple of day trips to local attractions. Seems like the summer just flew by.

    1. Good morning Sandra. I so appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to comment. This summer has gone by fast and it's cooling off here at night. Hoping for an early fall!
