15 years ago today...#HappyAnniversary

It had to be one of the hottest days in July ... EVER ... when we got married.


But, it was a beautiful day to marry my best friend.

When they talk about how opposites attract, it never became more clear than when we started to plan the wedding.

He wanted traditional and I wanted the exact opposite of that. After many heated 'discussions' we found a happy medium.

It's why when people tell me they're getting married, I tell them to elope. :)

A lot of things have changed in 15 years, but we still make each other laugh, so we've got that going for us.

:)



Thanks for celebrating all week with me!

1/2 way through my anniversary week! #romance #99cents

We are half-way through the week which means that we are getting closer to my actual anniversary, which is tomorrow. :)

The HUSBAND and I met at our local fire department carnival in 1997, so technically we've been together for 19 years and married 15.



Antique fire trucks brought us from the wedding to the reception. It was truly awesome.

My name is Rose, and welcome to the summer break before my senior year. You’d think I’d be a little more excited, sorry to disappoint. My mom thinks I’m in a state of depression. I yell how nuts she is…then begin snot-crying, uncontrollably. So embarrassing.

I live on a small island named Luna Bay, in North Carolina. I should be getting excited like the rest of the teenage population to venture off into the enchanting world of endless exams and studying—college. Instead, I spend my days hiding out in my room, living vicariously through the lives of fictional characters.

Until my whole world turns upside down when I throw water in an innocent guy’s face. That’s when the headaches start, the blackouts and general craziness, ya know, more so than normal.

“Sometimes the worst possible situation turns into something great. Something you’ll never forget…remember that.”—Rose Kaylin.



About the Author:
Ashley’s favorite thing to write about is basically anything to do with myths, supernatural, paranormal… but upon occasion she’ll write about young adult life. It comes somewhat naturally to her considering she’s twenty herself.

If the vampires or other supernatural beings still haven’t claimed her, you’ll most likely find her with her computer or a notebook, working on whatever story plots invaded her mind at that time or an article for www.lllranting.com. An organization that supports LGBT+ people and mental health sufferers. Like most young people, she’s still unsure of what all she wants to do with her life. Become a marine biologist, graphic designer, editor, own a clothing line, or become a cryptozoologist? Maybe just stick to writing? Or, maybe do all of the above. We might find out one day.

She hopes to one day travel the world, take her mom to swim with the dolphins, let her sister finally visit Graceland, and swim with sharks…probably without Mom. She currently lives in North Carolina with her mom, sister, and four crazy, spoiled dogs who think they’re human.

You can find her on her website: www.JustThatWeirdoNextDoor.com, or on pretty much any other social media site as AshKat174, except Snapchat (ash_lllranting). You can probably find those links on her website.

Choose, but choose wisely: Wild Horses & Anniversary Present!

My brother is learning to play the guitar, which is so very cool!

It's something I've always wanted to do and yet I'm unable to use both hands to play an instrument, which is just weird because I'm able to type.

One of the songs he's learning is Wild Horses by The Rolling Stones. If I can't play, I figure I'll just sing the songs with him while he plays.

There are quite a few covers of this song, which are all very good. These are my three favorite.

The original by The Stones, Gavin Rossdale (le sigh) singing live with his band Bush, and the haunting voice of Harriet Wheeler from The Sundays.

Do you have a favorite version? Do you know a different one you'd like to share?

I almost forgot! I'm celebrating my anniversary by putting Already Home on sale for 99 cents! If you've been waiting to get your ebook copy do it next week!

What's on your food bucket list?

This past weekend I went to my brother's house in NJ to enjoy some food, fermented libations, festivities, and frivolity.

My brother is getting really good at the Clam Bake pot, which is great because we're really good at eating it.

I wish I had taken photos of the amazing amounts of food that come out of this pot, but it kind of looks like this!

Borrowed from Google.
Chicken legs & thighs, corn on the cob, red skinned potatoes, big chunks of kielbasa, shrimp, & steamed clams in the shell.

All the food gets put on giant platters in the middle of the table until its groaning and we're groaning cause it smells so delicious!

And it's so-so-so-so good! 

On my food bucket list is going to a Crawfish Boil. [AKA crayfish/crawdads/mudbugs.]

Borrowed from Google.

I don't know what those little suckers taste like, but it can't be that popular and be gross. Right?

What about you? What's on your food bucket list?

#IWSG - Sharing a #BestThing!

 
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

JULY 6 QUESTION: What's the best thing someone has ever said about your writing?

Alex J. Cavanaugh's awesome co-hosts for the July 6 posting of the IWSG will be Yolanda Renee, Tyrean Martinson, Madeline Mora-Summonte , LK Hill, Rachna Chhabria, and JA Scott! 


Hello fellow Insecure Writers!

I'm joining in the fun with July's IWSG theme and talking about the best thing someone has ever said about my writing.

And I quote: "...Read this for the second time this week and I have to say- this author writes the best first kisses ever. And if I thought it might have been a lucky first shot? Nope… because she does it again in the second book! The books are just the right balance of hot and romantic..."

Best first kisses ever? That is awesome! That makes me so happy because I spent forever writing them!

Those first kisses are so important. I really believe they set the tone for the whole romance!

So, to get that kind of compliment from a reader? Freakin' awesome!

I will say, I've been fortunate to receive many nice compliments about my writing in the last few years, so I thank the Universe and the very nice readers for that.


How about you?

What 'best thing' did you hear/read about your work that stayed with you?

Hi there! My second book, One Good Catch, takes place in the late summer in the fictional town of Maguire's Corner.



There's a parade with floats and a huge family picnic near a lake.





Meet Rhys MacGrath, pro-football player and major hottie.







And this is Kate Maguire, ER Doctor and town gossip.









 


When it gets dark there's a brilliant fireworks show over the water!





It's a little taste of small town America that I absolutely love.

Truthfully, we really do all of these things where I live during the summer, just not all on the same day!

How do you spend your summer days and nights?
