Mother’s Day Flowers!

I had to share the beautiful flowers we, my mom and I, received for Mother’s Day.

My thanks to my sons and my nephew, Devon, for making the day so special for both Mom and I.





H is for Hedonism

APRIL-2013-CALENDAR-001I’m so excited to join in the A to Z blog hop!!! Truly, I regard it as a terrific challenge and a wonderful kick-start to my new website. My topic for the entire 26 days will be romance, particularly erotic romance. My structure will be as follows: I am going to first list the pertinent words for the day and then discuss one of them in alphabetical order, of course.

H: hedonism, horny, hot-blooded, head over heels, and hunky.

The above are my list of sexy and/or erotic and/or romantic H words. Feel free to chime in with your own!

For the seventh day of the A to Z blog hop challenge – I choose the word hedonism -mainly because my first born was conceived at the Jamaican Tropical resort that goes by the same name – Hedonism II (no clue as to where Hedonism I was or is).

Hedonism: Pursuit of or devotion to pleasure, especially to the pleasures of the senses.

We won the trip to Hedonism II. Actually, my girlfriend won it and then gave it to us. We’d attended an  “Air Jamaica” launch cocktail party and they gave out raffle tickets as we entered. I told the woman giving out the tickets – “I never win anything – give them to someone else.” My girlfriend glared at me and said, “I’ll take them.”

Yep, you just have to know it – one of those 3 tickets won the prize – a free trip to Hedonism II.

When we landed in Jamaica, there was a bus waiting for us. As we boarded, the driver gave every person a ginormous plastic filled with rum punch. You have to know how that trip went – there was a babydoll disco party (you had to wear a baby doll costume), a pool that was a bar where everyone went skinny dipping, cocktails on beach chairs, a nude beach, a nude sunset (go figure) cruise, and no TVs.

One of the best vacations of my life.
