… who knows how 26 years go by and the one you love barely changes in your eyes.

But it happens and thank goodness we have these dates called anniversaries to take the time to mark the moments. To look back and plan forward.

To hold hands and give thanks.

And today I am thankful,

for so much but mostly for being here… still…

Anniversary 26 B

…with you.

A Little Math Magic

Monday, October 7th, 2013

Happy 24th Anniversary to my dear DH. Every time I think of the number it just amazes me. How is it that what seems like yesterday and 1+1 turning into 2 and then just like that—POOF—in the blink of an eye, 2 tuned into 4 then, WHAM! You go to sleep in the loving arms of your Prince and you wake up and you’re looking back on that 2 and 4 turning into 24 years of life, love, laughter and memories.

Thank you my dear DH with all my heart, all my soul and all my love. Who knew 24 could breeze by so quickly?

I can’t wait to see what the next cool breeze brings.

Signed With Love…

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Last night I waited impatiently for my DH to come home while the package sat on the table. It was there and I was going crazy! But still, I waited and waited as I was afraid to open it alone. Who knows it may have jumped out and bit me or something. Better to have a bit of back up. Or I might have fainted dead away and I don’t think Jack is one of those wonder dogs, you know, all inclined to dial 911 when things get sticky. More likely than not, he’d use my body as a handy stepping stool to the table where he’d be that much closer to his treats. But I’m now off course as you all know I’m often to be. Let’s get back to where I was waiting. And waiting.

Then finally he came home, looked at me on the couch and said, “you’re still up?”

“I was waiting to open my package. I think my book is here and I don’t want to open it alone.”

He threw down his bag and said, “well what are you waiting for? Open it,”all the while excitedly going for his camera phone. I frowned, because by then I was looking a hot mess but inside I was grinning.

Then it was open. We were wide eyed. There it is. A book. A bit smaller than I thought for all those words I made up. I shrug. Guess it turns out, I really can edit. The cover is smooth and cool to the touch. I flip through. No pages upside down. All seems good.  We kissed and hugged and laughed. Yay! My name is on the spine. Holla.

But then there is another package to open. You see I ordered my book to see how it would turn out, but as I was doing that my DH was ordering his own copy and now I had my first book that needed an autograph.  And this one was signed with love. So worth the wait.


All the best,



P.S. you can get your smooth paper edition of Through the Lens here. Now in 2 handy dandy versions. Pick your pleasure!

Happy Monday and Happy Columbus day! I hope all you lucky ones with the day off today get to relax enjoy it. Thanks for all the anniversary well wishes over the weekend. It was so appreciated and wonderful.

So what happens after 23 years? Well, you go to open your cards and get this…

Great minds, huh? And this is not the first time we’ve both gotten the same card for each other. It was a good laugh. Nice to see we’re still compatible in the humor department.

Hope you get in a hearty laugh today.


All the best,




Breaking News! Romance Writer Loses Her Words…

Friday, October 5th, 2012

This just in… semi-popular novelist K.M. Jackson is at a loss for words.

In a statement put out by the multi-published tweeter Ms. Jackson stated:

“Oh crap, this seems to happen to me all the time around this time of year. You see come this Sunday on the 7th it will be my 23rd wedding anniversary with the DH and the whole anniversary thing always puts me at a loss for words.

I mean I can spin a tale about some fantasy couple of my dreams, no problem, but when it comes to the real thing that I experience every day I  just get struck dumb and find myself wandering the Hallmark aisle, looking for the world’s longest card. One that can adequately express what I can’t. The ups, downs, joys and frustrations of 23 years with the one I love. And surprise of all surprises (at least to me at times) loves this sometimes very off kilter writer gal back. The words that show the ‘oh my god ‘and the ‘oh my, thank god’ moments that have made this the most amazing and unimaginable 23 years of any life and I can’t believe it’s mine. Words that can express how at a stoplight I still get distracted by the thought of his smile, those eyes, that nose, those… well , I’ll just stop right there. Let’s just say the words, my words, they run together and it’s all a jumbled mess. In the end I just leave with my 2 cards and hope that my little I love you forever signed from my open heart is enough to say it all.”


All the best,




Your Wife Wrote What?

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

Good day folks. So last night I was cracking up as I watched as it started to really hit the DH that I was now published. While flipping back and forth between football and the DNC we were talking about the week so far and he turned to me and said, “So people have read the book? The WHOLE book?”

With the way he said it I couldn’t help but laugh. Finally those jitters and butterflies over people reading your words that I had been talking about was hitting him and hard. I think it may be because he was kind enough to tell some people at work about TTL and one women went and downloaded it right away coming back to comment on my dedication to him.

I just looked at him with what was probably a ‘duh dude’ face, but then I took in his nervous eyes and smiled. “Yep,” I said, “The WHOLE book. Hey, it was bound to happen one day.” Then he did that tight lip and run his hand over his forehead thing that he does and I wondered if a certain scenes were coming to his mind. I could practically feel his wheels spinning as he was probably second guessing if telling the folks at work was a good idea after all. Yep, it was funny to me.

Sweet pretty release day congratulations flowers fm the DH

Today I’m over at the fantastic Laura Simcox’s blog talking about Through The Lens, my hero and heroine and what a cheap date I happen to be (lucky DH).  Please stop on by here and see why.

The hero of my heart.

Happy Birthday!


Love you forever,


All I got was…

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

So no matter what I did I did not get handed a golden ticket to the game last night, but at least the DH came home with this Super Cool T-Shirt for me!






Adoring… happily

Friday, April 16th, 2010

What’s Jack up to? He’s very happy today because today is HIS BFF’s Birthday. But he’ll have to wait in line to give out some birthday cheer because before he was his BFF he was MINE.

Yes, today is my DH’s birthday.

Happy Birthday Lovey!!



I always find this the hardest post of the year to write. What do I say after over 20 years that hasn’t already been said? ‘Happy Birthday’ are truly not strong enough words to express the magnitude of what I’m feeling and wishing for my dear DH today.

So since the right words fail me (the writer-um, nice) when it comes to you. I’ll leave it to Prince because he was there from the beginning:

 “Until the end of time
I’ll be there 4 u
U own my heart and mind
I truly adore u
If god one day stroke me blind
Your beauty i’d still see
Love is 2 weak 2 define
Just what u mean 2 me”


Wishing you all the happiness in the world and then some more if I can grab it for you.

With you I’ll get greedy.


Love Always,



Love from DS, DD and Jack too



All you bloggy folks. Check me out tomorrow over here! Yay!!!!!
