I turned another year older in September. Although I think attaining another year is always worth celebrating, especially when you notice that they’re starting mount up, ahem, this one was pretty quiet. A number of family members have been hospitalized for various ailments this month, so there wasn’t a lot of motivation to hold a big party. Besides, last year I pulled out all the stops & spent the day with a girlfriend who treated me to a day in a gorgeous spa.
I did feel guilty about such indulgence, but only a bit. After spending four years either at or driving home from a figure skating competition with my oldest on my birthday, I felt entitled to some pampering!
My friend and I had a blast. We got mudwraps, which sounds disgusting but which felt like being brushed with a thick layer of warm chocolate. We got facials. We got manicures. It was just marvelous! Much as I’d like to, I won’t be celebrating other birthdays in such sybaritic luxury in the foreseeable future, but I will always treasure the memories of this particular one.
In honor of my birthday month, September, and the arrival of the cover for Her Scottish Groom, I’ll give away up to 5 copies of my current release, TO BE SEDUCED, this Friday! I’ll draw names from among commentators to this post, so tell me how you feel about birthdays and which ones were your most memorable.
And don’t forget to check out Authors by Moonlight tomorrow, when I’m unveiling the cover of HSG!
