HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY one and all-
I'm sending you some e-flowers from my garden here in Hawaii. A beautiful purple/pink orchid and a Bird of Paradise that is absolutely gorgeous. I would write a new blog entry, but it's Mother's day, so I'm busy forcing my husband to do my bidding. And what am I doing, you ask? Watching ALL my missed programs--Fringe, Prison Break, Grey's, etc. By tomorrow I will be totally caught up on everything. Ah, delicious. I'm also reading and looking forward to a massage on the lanai. Woo hoo. What a day. :)
But I have lots of news and will write more tomorrow--including posting a picture of Kim. I promise!
For now, I wish all of you the very best of mother's days---whether you are a mother or are just thinking of your mother or wishing to be a mother. I wish you all peace and joy and control of the remote on this most feminine of holidays.

Beautiful flowers for Moms Day. I spent the day finishing "firefly lane" and what a rush on emotions. You brought back for me my memories of the loss of a close friend in 2003. They were good memories. You are so right about the music and clothing that can trigger lost events. Thank you for a wonderful book. I also read True Colors before the firefly and have been passing it around to friends. Now I have another to Kristin Hannah to make sure they read.
Thank you and have a great week

Ooooh, I can't kill flowers from someone else's garden!

We're at the weird time in our lives where we still celebrate our mother's and less ourselves. So, my inlaws came over on Saturday during which we showered her with gifts. Then, we went to my sister's house last night to shower my mother with gifts and food.

As for me, my present was that Little Miss slept late. Well, the boy gets up with her on Saturdays. On Sunday, she woke up normal time, ran around like a crazy person and went to bed again 20 minutes later without breakfast. She slept for 3 more hours (and woke up starving). She was a great napper this weekend which help us get a lot done.

Hope you and all the mothers on the board had a wonderful day and all the pampering lasts more than one obligatory day. :)

I'm actually very behind on my B-list of tv shows and have done no reading. It's sad. I did start Vision in White by Nora Roberts. She's always a quick, solid standby to kick start reading again.

Happy Mother's Day back at you, Kristin! I was thinking of you yesterday.

I had tried to post a previous reply, but I suppose it got lost. In it, I explained that I write short stories and poetry, in response to your question. Just haven't written a lot lately.

I also said that writing is an excellent stress-buster, and it's so fun sometimes to have a bubble bath, with a book in one hand and a drink in the other!

I'm on eHarmony, which would explain the hot guys! I truly hope Something comes of this. Although, a relationship might get in the way of my "first love", books. However, almost all the books I read are about relationships, so there you have it :)

I'm loving "Waiting for the Moon", and I'm bummed that I'm running out of your books. Three Biggies left: Summer Island, Distant Shores, and Magic Hour. Once I googled your books, and I thought I saw one called All The Blue Skies. What became of that? Also, do you have a list of your novellas? I need something to keep me busy 'till your awesome 2010 book comes out!

I so wish to come to Washington and meet you and maybe Susan Wiggs of Table for Five fame.
I may try to come for the Port Orchard days and get to meet Debbie as well. So, so exciting to finally meet you. Well one can always hope. Of course you make it easy to believe I already know you!

Thank you for your faithfulness to us!

Aloha Kristin,

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. We always walk for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure for all the Moms and ladies with breast cancer and then spend the rest of the day with our children and their families.

The tropical flowers are some of the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. When we were in Maui we stopped at the Garden of Eden on The Road to Hana and your garden is absolutely gorgeous as it was.
