Book Spotlight - Merry and Bright by Debbie Macomber

I enjoy reading Christmas books anytime of the year, but especially during the Holidays!  😊
And, I always enjoy reading Christmas stories by Debbie Macomber!

I started reading this book yesterday, I love the story! 

Merry and Bright by Debbie Macomber

Published: October 3rd, 2017
Publisher: Random House 

From Goodreads:
Merry Knight is pretty busy these days. She's taking care of her family, baking cookies, decorating for the holidays, and hoping to stay out of the crosshairs of her stressed and by-the-book boss at the consulting firm where she temps. Her own social life is the last thing she has in mind, much less a man. Without her knowledge, Merry's well-meaning mom and brother create an online dating profile for her--minus her photo--and the matches start rolling in. Initially, Merry is incredulous, but she reluctantly decides to give it a whirl.

Soon Merry finds herself chatting with a charming stranger, a man with similar interests and an unmistakably kind soul. Their online exchanges become the brightest part of her day. But meeting face-to-face is altogether different, and her special friend is the last person Merry expects--or desires. Still, sometimes hearts can see what our eyes cannot. In this satisfying seasonal tale, unanticipated love is only a click away.

Keeper of the Plains - Wichita, Ks

I'm currently reading "Love Finds you on Christmas Morning" on my Kindle app on my tablet.  Two wonderful stories of the same house -- set 85 years apart.

 Two women receive marriage proposals in the same house—eight-five years apart. Love finds a home on Christmas morning in two heartwarming holiday stories. 

“Deck the Halls”
"’Tis the Season”

And, I wanted to share some photos with you that I took of a Wichita Attraction called "Keeper of the Plains".  You can read more about this Statue at this article

The 44', 5 ton stylized sculpture of an Indian Chief was designed by Native American artist Blackbear Bosin (1921-1980) and constructed by Tom Washburn of Architectural Metal Products.

Its fun to walk on the Bridge!   

There is a nice path that you can walk near this River 

And, you can rent bikes to ride near this Attraction! 

Have a great day!
