Jumping For Joy in Pacific Grove, California

We had a chance to getaway for the weekend to the Monterey coast, staying at the amazing Seven Gables Bed & Breakfast. What a wonderful time. Here’s a picture of me showing my gratitude. 🙂Seven Gables Inn, Pacific Grove.

Saying goodbye to my hairy friend.

P1060877.JPGChiqui was my first dog. I got him in a package deal when I met my hot Spanish wife eight years ago. He was family. Our beautiful boy. We had to say goodbye to him last week. He had lymphoma. Those of you who have lost a dog know it’s not easy, but we are grateful he is now pain-free and chasing squirrels in heaven.

Santa Cruz, jan. 2013I loved his beautiful smile. I loved that he was on the floor by my feet while I wrote my first six books. I loved how he would get out of his doggie bed every night after I turned out the light and come around to my side of the bed to say goodnight to me. I loved that he always came over to say good morning to me when the alarm went off each day.P1010434 I loved that he ate tuna and Manchego cheese imported from Spain. I even loved when he almost pulled my arm off whenever he saw a squirrel. I loved him. I love the memories I have of him. Enough memories to last a lifetime. 🙂

Jumping For Joy in Boise, Idaho

We visited the land of potatoes for a wedding this weekend. We walked everywhere and toured the Idaho State Capitol. It was a wonderful visit but I’m ready to get back to my writing! 🙂 IMG_0260
