|Flowering Almond, in bud, by Carrie Fancett Pagels|
Change is inevitable, isn't it? Nothing marks that more than springtime and Daylight Savings Time. Kids must adjust to the the change in school time as do teachers and other making their way to work an hour earlier than normal. But eventually we get adjusted to the time change.
About a week ago, my Flowering Almond was budding (see photo above) and now it is blooming (see below.) I can't stop that change and I enjoy seeing the pink buds become full blooms. This is my favorite season of the year. And, of course, pink is my favorite color!
But even good changes can be stressful. There's even a word for good stress -- eustress! I have a new release, and am so delighted! Sadie Duvall's story is a sequel to My Heart Belongs on Mackinac Island. She's Maude's best friend. Sadie's novella, "Love's Anchor" is in the First Love Forever Collection from Barbour, releasing April 1st! I just receive my author copies and are getting those out in the mail (that's a little stressful because I'm pretty slow in packing things up due to my arthritis.)

It's been FIVE years since Return to Shirley Plantation: A Civil War Romance released! I can't believe it! I'll be celebrating on my Facebook Author page with lots of giveaways and I'll even try my first "Live" appearance on my FB page! After all, change is inevitable! And it's time I tried it. Could be fun!
Giveaway: A Copy of First Love Forever Romance Collection (or one of Carrie's other books). Answer this question: What about springtime do you find most stressful and what is most delightful?
