FLYLeF Turns 2!

Greetings Lovely Visitors,

Welcome to my 2nd anniversary celebration! I'm thrilled, and quite honestly a bit shocked, that I have been able to follow my passion for this long. To celebrate, an amazing group of bloggers and I have planned posts for you to enjoy, all centered around the theme...

FRIENDSHIP

Please make sure to visit them to read their unique perspectives on this theme.

XOXO,

PS. There is an Owl Crate treat for you at the end of this post. Enjoy!

 

  FRIENDSHIP DISCUSSION: My Mother  

Today is Mother's Day! And, I'd like to share with you the most important female friend in my life—my mother!

As a daughter, I'm now blessed with motherhood to two young gentlemen. I'm only barely understanding the magnitude of responsibility that my mom carries, but I'm forever grateful that she's my pillar, my disciplinarian (oh, I was obnoxious at times), and my unconditional friend.

For my discussion, I'd like to list the top 5 must-haves that she's taught me in a good friendship:

  1. Food: Some of my fondness memories are those that include a casual gathering with good friends, uncensored conversations, and delicious foods. Libations always included, of course.
  2. Communication: I really enjoy dissident points of view. I find those conversations stimulating, and when I'm truly openminded, I'll learn from my friends.
  3. Affection: Hug me! I don't bite.
  4. Laughter: I'm old enough to worry about laugh lines, but young enough to still laugh at myself.
  5. Self-care: It's not selfish to take care of yourself; it's self-care. It's hard but I always try to make time for myself.

Happy Mother's Day everyone! And, happy Mother's Day, Mom, I love you!!

  A BE-LATED INTRODUCTION  


Yes, that's me! Finally, a real face. Or, is it? *wink*

I'm the creative mind behind FLYLēF (pronounced like flyleaf) who enjoys reading late into the night to satisfy my insatiable addiction to mostly young adult and adult novels: romance (contemporary and historical), fantasy, and paranormal (especially vampires). I believe in the magic of spellbinding words coming together to build breathtaking worlds in our minds’ eyes. Happiness is just a book away, find it with me.

I'm also the host of FLYTIP and Book of Choice Giveaway Hop, and co-host of The Comment Challenge.
