Musa Memorial Day Blog Tour

Welcome everyone to my portion of the
Musa Memorial Day Blog Hop!

I’m the offspring of a World War II soldier.  He, along with several of my relatives served to keep the American free.  Some in Korea, others in Vietnam and now in the Middle East.  In addition to my family members, it occurred to me as I started to work on today’s post that my three husbands also severed in the military and in the first marriage I spent double digit years as an Army wife.  A young girl of nineteen from rural North Carolina got to see a lot of the world.  The marriage may have fallen apart, but my appreciation and admiration of those who serve remained, and still remains strong. Thank each and every one of your for putting your lives on the line each day!

I’m sharing a couple of shots of beautiful Colorado with you.  Hope you enjoy!
Here's the beautiful Maroon Bells

And here’s a little about Making Christmas, the 2011 LRC Winner for Best Historical.

Even during the Civil War, Christmas is made with love.

Wounded in a skirmish, Callie Marsh’s disguise as a Confederate soldier is discovered by the doctor who treats her. Working with him in the hospital she learns no matter what color uniform a soldier wears, they all miss family during the holidays. And that an enemy doctor can be the man of her dreams.

Dr. Tom Kent knows the safest place for the woman is working by his side. Their constant interaction has him wanting more than is smart considering their division of philosophy. His determination to keep her safe is hindered by Major Henry Ash’s decision the young prisoner would make an excellent aide could put her in danger of discovery.

Will Callie be able to set aside her dislike of Yankees to make Christmas for the enemy and especially for the man she’s come to love?

We had plans for a bonfire but a storm is literally raining on those plans. Guess I'll be here catching up on great blog posts!

Happy Memorial Day, Lizzie! I'm spending a nice quiet Memorial Day house sitting for my parents who are with my Grandfather--one of the Greatest Generation WWII veterans.

Your book sounds wonderful!

We lived in Colorado eight years while my husband served in the Army. I still miss it and the Army life. Making Christmas sounds like a wonderful read. I already follow you and hope you have a great reaction to your writing. We had a family wedding this weekend and just returned home last night. We're too tired to celebrate any more, but we're remembering.
