Happy September 1st and release month for Love’s Fortune!

Pinterest screenshot LF

It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of Pinterest. Since beginning Love’s Fortune, I’ve created a board that’s been deliciously “secret” till today with over 200 images relevant to the novel. I hope the board is a feast for your eyes and heart!

I’d love to know if my images match the ones in your imagination ~ or not!

If you’re on Pinterest, I’d love to connect with you there! Just leave a link here and I’ll follow you.

Happy reading ~ or pinning ~ or both!

Can’t believe summer is almost gone! Thankfully, it was one of the most beautiful summers on record here, as this photo attests…

I had so much fun with my men the past few months. There’s Wyatt at top right, on his way to becoming a firefighter very soon. Paul looks a little like Moses with that staff on our hike for berries up in the foothills. We had a bountiful pea crop, too, and have been shelling them on the porch in the evenings…

We made peach pies in all sizes and varieties this summer. Recipes to come…

And finally, Wren recently arrived to join her aunt Ellie and grandmother Eden. So good to have all my girls together at last:)


Care to share some summer memories? I’d love to know what went on in your neck of the woods!
