For those of you don’t know me, I’m the author of the Big & Beautiful series which is available everywhere. Book 6, Plump & Pretty, is available now and Book 7, Husky & Hot, is coming April 5! Hang around for a while and look at all my books as well as my blog. I’m sure you’ll find something you like!

Since we’re talking about the little things here, I wanted to share a few of the little things that make me smile. It’s easy to lose sight of what matters, but the little things are around us all the time!

My first favorite little thing is Love!

Love is everywhere, right? It’s in the face our your significant other or kids. It’s in the heart of the person who buys your coffee in the drive thru line. It’s in the snuggle from your pets. It’s everywhere. A lot of the time we take that love for granted though. I know I do. But when my kids hugged me and told me they loved me, or my dad went to an oncology appointment with me, or my mom watched my kids so I could sleep, or my sister got up early to take me to chemo, or when my sister-in-law sent me a text to say she was thinking of me, or my husband kept the kids busy so I could write, or so many other little things that people did to help me, I could feel their love. It’s a little thing that is so big!

Second is a good book.

I’m a writer, but first I’m a reader. I love seeing my name on a book, but I also love to read. I really do stay up way too late reading most nights, but I love every second of it, even if I regret it in the morning! Reading was what made me want to be a writer. There were so many amazing books out there and I wanted to create a little piece of that amazing too.

The third little thing that always makes me smile is wine and chocolate!

(I know that’s two, but really, they go so well together I had to include them as one!)

You’re laughing, right? In chemo they encourage you not to drink because chemo can mess up your liver and so can alcohol. Giving up alcohol for six months while I was in chemo was no big deal (I did it when I was pregnant), but that first glass of wine, and all those other ones since, remind me that I’m healthy and I can enjoy wine whenever I want. During chemo though I could eat all the chocolate I wanted. For some reason I craved it during treatment and always had some in my bag for the hospital. Of course, not much has changed, I still have chocolate with me at all times! When you can’t have wine, chocolate works!
