The New Book Club pick!

It's official! I've chosen the new wedding-themed novel for my Bridal Book Club, and it's "Hitched" by Carol Higgins Clark, which hooked me from the opening pages. This bestselling author captured a terrific angle on the wedding industry, and her plot just soars. I'm excited to offer this book to all of the book clubs out there who have been following my selections...and I also have fun news about one of my previous picks: "Wedding Season" by Darcy Kosper was just optioned for movie rights. Can I pick 'em, or what? ;)

In other work news, I was answering some terrific questions on the BlissWeddings.com site and a new book idea hit me. So Lex, thank you for the inspiration! Finder's fee for you if it gets picked up, and then that will solve one of the problems we covered for you!

And the donations are still pouring in (no pun intended) for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Mother's Day Tea fundraiser. Thank you to all who are taking part in this...I love seeing those little white envelopes in the mailbox. My generous and warm-hearted friends and family always come through for the cause!

20 minutes until American Idol. That gives me time to start on my first article for ResortsandLodges.com, where I have four new columns starting this month. I'm indescribably happy about delving into travel writing and I love the editorial calendar for the year. So pleased to blend in my wedding expertise, too. And to think...two months ago I was thinking about being a hostess in a jazz club because I didn't have a nice flow of work. I just needed to get back on the racehorse and make something new happen...As Nicole Kidman said to Naomi Watts: "It just takes one thing, one thing..."
