Celebrating Independence Blog Hop



Happy Independence day!!! What do you think of when you think of independence day? Our fight for freedom? BBQs? Summer Pools?

For me, it was always spending time on the base as a kid with my folks and watching the Thunderbirds fly overhead, watching the GIs be hugged and loved by their family members, watching the kids run across the fields with little flags and stars painted on their faces.

Because, you know what, we CAN do that because of people like my dad. Yep. I'm so grateful of where I live and what I'm able to do. And of course, I love potato salad and deviled eggs. :-)

What do you do on the 4th of July?

Looking for something to read over the holiday weekend? Why not try Trinity Bound? Or any of my Redwood Pack books?


Trinity Bound Blurb

Hannah Lewis, a rare earth witch, is taken from the only life she’s ever known. Held at her will by a sadistic wolf, she almost gives up hope that she’d ever see her real life again. But as her fellow captive, a werewolf named Reed, tries to calm her fears, she begins to feel a spark of something she never thought she’d feel – love. But is Reed, alone, enough to get her out of this dark basement so she can move on with her life?
Reed Jamenson, the artist of a werewolf Pack of Alpha males, knows instinctually that Hannah is his mate. Thus, despite their imprisonment, he will do all to protect her and then worry about their hearts. But is he strong enough to find a way for both of them to escape? And why does he feel as though something else is missing?
Josh Kolb, an ex-military human, stumbles upon Reed and Hannah and finds he must trust this new world of supernatural beings to survive. But that desire will lead the three to a triangle of attraction that will test the boundaries they all possess and its consequences in defeating the enemy. Can they all trust one another to save themselves and life as they know it? Even at the cost of their own hearts?

  3. My cousin and I took the screen of one of my 2nd story bedroom windows and sat on the roof of the house to watch fireworks the summer we were 12. It was the last summer we spend the whole summer together. She moved across the country that year.

  7. My favorite memory would be taking my girls to the fireworks when they were young. My FIL gave oldest ear muffs he wears for shooting. And he gave us some of my youngest who was just a baby. Amazing my baby didn't wake up at all during the fireworks and my oldest was able to enjoy the fireworks without hurting her ears.
    Happy 4th of July!

  26. My favorite 4th of July memory was when I was 15 and was on a once in a lifetime trip to Western Europe. On that day we were in the Swiss Alps and got to have a snowball fight on one of the mountains. We also ate at fondue at this restaurant that had placemats acknowledging the American Independence Day, which was awesome for a group of 30 American teenagers!

    Thanks!

  39. I've never been a big fan but when I was a kid I lived just across the river from Manhattan. We had a view from our back window of the Twin Towers going up. Our view of the great fireworks was so impressive.
    Happy July 4th...Stay cool!

  40. For years we would fight the crowds to find a great spot to watch the mammoth fireworks show in town. Now that we are in the country, we have a view of several nearby towns who have displays. We sit in our driveway, drink margaritas,and watch the fireworks..love it. On the serious side, it is a time to reflect on the men and women who are watching and getting caught in real fireworks and thank them for fighting for us.
