I refuse to post a photo of a moon pie! :)
Welcome to 2013. A lot happened in my world during 2012. My last child graduated from high school. My middle one turned 21 and moved into his own place. My husband was offered an amazing opportunity with his company that will, unfortunately, have him away from home for longer periods of time. Instead of being bummed over that, I will look at it as another opportunity for me to travel and see parts of the United States that I have not yet seen. I went to my first ever Alabama Crimson Tide football game in Dallas, Texas (opening day of the season) as well as my first Dallas Cowboys game in the same week. I do not claim to be a Cowboys fan but I can tell you that the new stadium kicks ass. :) With the exception of stadiums that I simply must visit before I die, I managed to knock off almost everything on my bucket list in regards to U.S. travel. This happened when I spent my wedding anniversary in Maine last February. All that is left for me in the U.S. (other than the stadiums) are Alaska (I simply MUST see the northern lights) and one that I could have visited in February but I was too tired after the Maine trip... Salem, Massachusetts (we literally drove past the exit... I was SO close!) I'm not sure why I must go to Salem but I really, really want to go (my smart ass husband has a good answer for that one but I won't mention it here... it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.. ;)

I hope everyone enjoyed Christmas and that you rang in 2013 with a bang. I have my goals for the year (I don't do resolutions), one of which is to step outside of the usual books that I read and go back to some of my old favorites. I will continue to read the LGBT books that I have grown to love but I will also throw in other genres that I once devoured and maybe even branch out completely outside of my little reading box. There are so many sub-genres out there that I have yet to explore. I look forward to reading new things and discovering new authors.
