I think my favorite holiday memories are usually tied to the ones that were the most simple. Holidays in my family could be pretty complicated because my parents were divorced and both remarried, creating multiple families. So Christmas became a marathon of visiting four to five houses over two days so that I could see and be seen by all the different arms of the family. Parts of that were fun (Lots of people! Lots of food! Lots of presents!), but it also was exhausting.
So I think my favorite Christmases were the ones where I went out of town with my mom and stepdad and stepbrother. We would often go some place cold, which was kind of magical when you grow up in balmy New Orleans, and something about being out of town during the holidays felt like such an adventure. My favorite of the trips was probably to Big Cedar Lodge in Branson, MO. I remember the road trip took forever (my parents always drove, planes were for sissies) and I was ready to murder my dear stepbrother by the time we got there. But once we arrived it was like Christmas wonderland. Mountains and snow and horse back riding. Crackling fires in big stone fireplaces and holiday decorations everywhere. I felt like I’d entered some Christmas movie.
So though I enjoy seeing all my family during the holidays, I do hold a special spot in my heart for holiday trips and try to take one every few years. Because there’s something about being somewhere else with the people you love that can make you feel truly home for the holidays. : )
So, how about you? Anyone else like to take trips during the holidays or do you prefer to stay close to home?
Series: Loving On the Edge #6
Page Count: 464 pages
Publisher: Berkley Trade (January 6, 2015)
From the New York Times bestselling author of Need You Tonight comes a steamy Loving on the Edge novel that proves watching is only half the fun…
Unlike the heroine of her popular thriller series, Georgia Delaune can’t afford to take risks or push sexual boundaries—unless you count spying through her neighbor’s bedroom window, and never missing a single move he makes.
Colby Wilkes is more than willing to put on a show for the alluring woman next door. But his dominant side aches to show her the pleasures of submission up close. As a counselor, Colby is sensitive to Georgia’s fears. As a Dom at The Ranch, a private BDSM retreat, he’s the perfect teacher to unleash her passion.
But just as Georgia lowers her emotional barriers, an unexpected complication arrives: a bad boy musician from Colby’s past who adds fuel to her heated imagination. Now, the lonely author has two gorgeous men eager to fulfill every fantasy she’s ever written—and one she’s never dared to dream…
