I'm super excited to share something special with you today. I got the chance to ask my friend and fellow writer, Darynda Jones, about her new book, A Good Day for Chardonnay (the second in the Sunshine Vicram mystery series). If you have a chance to try this series, you definitely should! 


AND on the Book Warriors Facebook Group, we've got a mini interview with Darynda and a giveaway! Go to the BOOK WARRIORS page to enter!

Running a small-town police force in the mountains of New Mexico should be a smooth, carefree kind of job. Sadly, full-time Sheriff—and even fuller-time coffee guzzler—Sunshine Vicram, didn’t get that memo.

Between policing a town her hunky chief deputy calls four cents short of a nickel, that pesky crush she has on Levi which seems to grow exponentially every day, and an irascible raccoon that just doesn’t know when to quit, Sunny’s life is about to rocket to a whole new level of crazy.

Yep, definitely a good day for chardonnay.

Last week I asked y'all if you preferred sweet or salty snacks. 


Sweet won over salty, but a little of both won overall with nearly 60%. So there you have it. Pass the sea salt caramel popcorn, please!

We're one step closer to being empty-nesters! We had a fun dinner out to celebrate them (and her 21st birthday!). These are our last two in college--she's a junior and he's a freshman. Am I weepy? You better believe it. But…


I'll soon be going to visit my other three kids in California…


…as well as my parents in Texas…


…and Carlos and I are also going to the beach with friends. 


Hey! Empty-nesting might not be too bad, after all!
