"New Year's Eve - Half Note Lounge"

Half Note Lounge - what can I say but this place and it's management team sure know how to throw a party. The music was great, Style Band, performed their renditions of many songs for the grown and sexy. The food...hmmm, I can still taste the crab dip, the chicken wings, ham, black eyed peas for good luck :) Let me stop - the food, atmosphere, the people and the ambiance made celebrating 2011 a TREAT!

"The Best Christmas Gift to Myself"


I'm very blessed this Christmas Day for my family and friends. But what I'm most proud of is that I've completed and published my first romantic-suspense novel, entitled "Gotta Let It Go."

Synopsis:

Moments before Deidre Hunter signs the papers that will end her marriage to her cheating husband, her best friend and divorce attorney gets murdered. Devastated by this tragedy, she sets out with one intent: to find the killer. In the midst of the investigation she finds herself attracted to Hill Harris, the handsome but elusive homicide detective assigned to handling the case. Despite his warnings to follow proper police procedures, she strikes out to uncover clues on the crime-ridden streets of Baltimore which forces her into dangerous circumstances and potential heartache.

"Symphony of Lights"

This evening my family and I went to the "Symphony of Lights" in Columbia, Maryland. This is a spectacular display of 70 larger than life animated and stationary light displays which has been a long standing community tradition for 17 years. I felt like I was Alice in Wonderland :)

The festivities kicked off on November 22, 2010 and runs through January 2, 2011. It's a must see with family and friends!

"Tis the Season for Lots of Parties, etc"

This past Wednesday, a group of friends and I hung out at Anabel Lee Tavern in Canton, Maryland. Although it's a small venue (most folks sit at the bar, others at the very tables they do have), we had a good time. The drinks was not watered down (lol). I had the Masque of the Red Death (Stoli Blackberi, Pama Ligueur, Peach Schnapps and Cranberry) - this drink was goood. For appetizer we shared the BBQ chicken and Applewood Smoked Bacon Nachos. I had the Crab Cake Platter (no filler here) for dinner and the Red Velvet Cake for dessert - yuuuummm! Excellent evening!

"In My Father's House" by E. Lynn Harris

Well, Christmas is just a few days away and the hustle and bustle is still on. As for me, I relish that I can enjoy the comfort of my home and curl up with the last of E. Lynn Harris' books, "In My Father's House." So the far, the drama just keeps coming. Love it!

"Christmas Is In the Air"

Well, I ventured out this morning to get a head start on buying a few things at the mall. By the time I was walking back to my car, the parking lot was totally unrecognizable - folks driving slowing behind you so they can get your parking spot, others parked along the curbs, etc. I simply couldn't wait to get into the sanctity and warmth of my home. Yes, Christmas is indeed in the air!
