Happy Boxing Day!

Boxing Day is a British tradition!

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine Christmas – The Eleventh Day of Christmas with guests Colleen Chesebro and Anne Goodwin.

Anne Goodwin and I were lucky enough to be featured on Sally Cronin’s 11th day of Christmas celebration. There’s food, great memories, drink (a little too much), and great friends. Happy Yule and Merry Christmas. ❤

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

Just two more parties to go before the big day and for this celebration I am delighted to welcome writers Colleen Chesebro and Anne Goodwin, both of whom will be sharing their most precious Christmas memories.

I purchased and reviewed Fairies, Myths & Magic by Colleen M. Chesebro as part of the Poetry Readathon and Poetry Blog Promotion series I am currently hosting.
