Welcome back to another fun blog hop!! I love doing these. Meeting new readers is just too much fun. If you’re new to my blog, it’s nice to meet you. And if you’re a returning friend, it’s nice to see you again!

I like Easter as a holiday. It’s fun for the kids and I get to eat a lot of chocolate. My favorite begin Cadbury mini eggs and cream eggs. Delicious! Every year we dip Easter eggs in dye and make a huge mess. And the bunny always leaves a bunch of eggs around the house and outside for the kids to find filled with candy, chocolate, stickers, and tiny toys. So fun!!

Sunny California? Not so much. Amelia’s stuck at the office retreat in frickin’ Lake Tahoe with a grabby colleague who thinks he’s God’s gift to women. At least the workshop presenter is super hot… if only she can get him to take her from the bunny hill to the bedroom.

Amelia Brooks agrees to a weekend retreat in California, thinking it will be held in sunny Malibu only to find out she’s stuck in chilly Lake Tahoe for four long days–just what a girl from Minnesota wants to hear in the middle of winter. Now instead of wiggling her toes in the sand, her feet are squeezed into her new manufactured-by-Satan-himself-uncomfortable boots. If that’s not enough, Amelia’s obnoxious colleague William has decided this is the weekend they’ll finally be together and he won’t keep his thoughts–or his hands–to himself.
Amelia’s ready to kick off those boots and peel off her wooly sweater once she meets Nate Miller–the workshop’s hunky presenter. But Nate’s not ready to settle down. He’s seen his workshop buddies fall in love then fall out of the running for being promoted to the big city workshop circuit and he’s not about to let that happen to his life’s dream–until he gets involved with Amelia. Now he’s not so sure he can walk away at the end of the weekend with his heart intact and his promotion in hand.
Now Amelia’s got four days to stave off William’s persistent advances long enough to fall in love with Nate and possibly…learn to ski the bunny hill.

    I’m pretty much a grown up but I’ll still get kind of excited when I say my Easter basket overflowing with chocolates and little presents, so other then hanging out with my family and getting to drool over my mom’s Easter cooking I guess seeing my Easter basket set out for me is my favorite part of Easter!

    My favorite part of the holidays? The food! My mom’s parents were Polish so we carried down the recipes and traditions of Polish celebration. Easter at my mom’s house smells like Heaven–there’s nothing like digging in to fresh kielbasi and pierogi after a weekend of fasting (or, in my case, trying to fast…I sneak a lot of snacks.)

    I’m glad I have my family and our traditions…they keep us together even when we are apart.

    Happy Easter!
    cheers, Ash

    I love those Cadbury Mini Eggs too…they are my favorite Easter candy. Often wish I could get them all year long but I guess they wouldn’t be such a special treat if that were the case.

    My favorite thing about Easter other than the chocolate candy is watching my cousins chase each other and break the confetti filled eggs on their heads…it’s not so much fun when they make me the target because they seem to forget that you are supposed to break the egg on your hand and then put the mashed up confetti eggshell in your head (hair).
