Hello, reader friends!!! I was flying high after our first camping trip of the season a few weeks ago which was possibly our best trip yet. While this is our first season in our own camper, we’ve been campers for 15 years! (Yes, even when the kids were babies!)
I have to say I really hope we got our worst camping trip of the season out of the way last weekend! Between the miserable humidity, constant mowing, swarming gnats and mosquitoes, shirtless “neighbors,” and teeny-tiny freckle-sized ticks (which we are still finding! *gag*), our youngest went so far as to declare the entire trip “horrible!”
Despite all of the negative aspects of the trip, we got to spend an uninterrupted weekend together and that is a rare and priceless gift (but the wonderfully steamy, high-powered campground shower beating away all the tension in my neck and shoulders sure didn’t hurt)!
I’m hoping for a longer trip in the early fall but can’t decide whether we should try a new campground within a few hours of home, head to the Appalachians near the North Carolina-Tennessee border, or hit the Gulf shores of Florida’s panhandle. Which would you pick for a quiet yet refreshing getaway?
Claiming Mariah by Pam Hillman
“Dust swirled as the two riders approached the house. They stopped a few feet shy of the steps, and Mariah Malone eyed the men from the shadowy recesses of the porch.“
I borrowed this title through a trial membership of the Kindle Unlimited program. It was so good that I immediately located additional books by this author… purchased Stealing Jake and rescued The Promise of Breeze Hill from my tbr shelf (don’t be alarmed, these things occasionally happen. no books were harmed by my hungry, somewhat frantic shuffling).
Claiming Mariah is a simply delicious western romance with loads of conflict, tension, and attraction. Mariah and Slade are formidable foes, equally matched in their stubbornness and determination to do whatever it takes to provide for their loved ones.
Don’t y’all know, sometimes God turns our little world upside down and inside out just to bless us beyond our wildest dreams?! I love it! I highly recommend this story and it’s on my paperback wishlist so I can properly place it on my all-time favorites shelf!
