Bon Voyage (& a winner)!

July 24, 2009

Can you see me in this photo? Nope, I’m not on the boat yet, but will be on Sunday. I’ll be taking my first cruise this weekend and am so excited! I’ll be cruising with my Dad and seven year old daughter (hubby and our youngest will be staying home since we are currently having work done on the house). I’m looking forward to spending some one on one time with Leah and visiting Bermuda for the first time. I’ve got my books all picked out and am pretty much ready to go!

While I’m away I am hoping to publish at least two posts (I’ve never tried scheduling an automatic post, so keep your fingers crossed that they work)!

I most likely won’t have access to my e-mail for the week, since internet time on a cruise ship is a major rip-off! Plus, it will do me some good to unplug for awhile. But once I’m back from vacation I will be posting a review for my Everything Austen challenge of Marsha Altman’s The Plight of the Darcy Brothers, along with a great giveaway.

Now, before I forget, the winner of a copy of The Art of Racing in the Rain is

Nancy of Bookfoolery and Babble

Congrats Nancy! Nancy wrote about her cats: “Both of my cats (one now deceased) have helped me through a great deal of heartbreak in recent years. We’ve lost so many family members. Our little Miss Sunshine used to climb up on my chest and stick her head under my chin when I cried. Sometimes, she’d even lick the tears off my face. I think she was more puppy than cat! I miss her terribly”.

 I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did Nancy! Send me your address at wordblog(at)optonline(dot)net and I will get the book in the mail to you once I am back from vacation.

Hope you all have a wonderful week! Be back soon!

    Oh my gosh, I’m so jealous. I want to go on a cruise so bad. Please give a detailed post of your experience. (I’m a bit nervous about the sea-sickness part, so convince me it’s all good when you return.)
