Yesterday was my birthday *throws confetti for self* *provides beautifully frosted cupcakes for the class*, and it was also the first day in my new home.
I AM BEYOND EXCITED TO BE A FIRST TIME HOMEOWNER. NEXT UP: ADOPTION.
If any of you are interested in the adoption story and seeing photos of the home just let me know. I'd be more than happy to blog about them! Anything to be able to share some of the struggles are inspiring people I've met alone the way.
That being said... I'm not really here (unless you count in spirit, then of course, I'm here). I'm unpacking, sitting on the brand new bed I got, and watching movies. However, for those of you who need something to do now that you can't spend all day here, I've got a special treat!!
Michele Gorman's new book Misfortune Cooke was released last Thursday! If it's anything like Single in the City you're going to love this new story!!! So stop in and check out her novel on Amazon. Grab it for your kindle and go find that beach hottie who can rub lotion on your back while you read by the ocean. I'll be back Monday!
Here's the adorable cover art:
About Misfortune Cookie:
"Following your heart will pay off in the near future"
The fortune cookie had spoken, affirming Hannah’s decision to move to Hong Kong to be with her boyfriend. She’s no stranger to rash decisions – after all she moved from the US to London on a dare, and that worked out, didn’t it? Ever the optimist, she’s determined to make a success of her move, no matter what anybody says.
Unfortunately, anybody seems to be everybody and her life isn’t going exactly to plan. Sure, she’s found a career in fashion that she loves, her best friend Stacy moved to be with her, and they’re exploring all that’s weird and wonderful about Hong Kong. It’s her love life that’s not quite living up to expectations. It isn’t easy having a relationship with a boyfriend who’s been posted to a job in another country. Particularly one who seems a bit too cosy with his new boss.
When things also start going wrong at work, Hannah begins to think her friends and family were right. Has she made the worst mistake of her life?
