"I just can't wait till Christmas!"
How many times did I say that as a kid? What I didn't understand at the time was that the delicious waiting was part of the fun.
This week while I'm writing furiously on TOUCH OF A THIEF (my current WIP which is due June 1st! It'll be my first Mia Marlowe title next May!) I'm also doing laundry and packing a suitcase. I'm tossing in Victoria Alexander's DESIRES OF A PERFECT LADY, Sherry Thomas's HIS BY NIGHT, and Jennifer Ashley's THE MADNESS OF LORD IAN MACKENZIE. On Friday, my DH and I leave on a cruise to Bermuda.
Yes, you can say it. I'm spoiled rotten.
We try to cruise every year and I look forward to our time aboard ship for months! I close my eyes and hear the waves shushing past us. I smell the briny air. I long for sun-drenched days and starry nights and uninterrupted time to focus on the man I love.
The anticipation stretches out the joy of the journey.
We can celebrate anything with eager expectation. What are you looking forward to?
