Stuff Your Stockings Blog Tour



I don't know about you, but I'm definitely getting into the Christmas spirit these days. 


Hunky Santa always helps, of course. 



Especially if his reindeer look anything like this.


Somehow, pictures like these put me in a giving state of mind. Christmas, to me, is all about gratitude. For instance, I'm grateful for hot men (can't you tell?), my family, my wonderful sweetie whom I love so much, the opportunity to write stories and especially to you READERS!!

So as part of the Stuff Your Stockings Blog Tour, I'm offering a prize to two winners: the first is a $25 gift certificate to winner's choice of Amazon/Ellora's Cave/Samhain; the second is the winner's choice of any two books from my backlist. All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what you're grateful for this Christmas.


Easy peasy! Not only that, but if you click on the Stuff Your Stockings graphic below, you'll be linked back to an amazing list of authors who are giving away all kinds of gifts this weekend.




So enjoy, stuff your stockings, enjoy the holiday season, and hug your loved ones. 





Peace and love,

Juniper

I am grateful for the little things. Like my new family... Even though it is not the best new family, but we are here and together. I am grateful that I have a job this season, I am grateful for my family (who happens to be 900 miles away... that I will miss... and be apart for the holidays for the first time in 36 years) and my sisters that keep me in one piece. Without my sister/best friend... I would not be here today!

Thanks for such a great giveaway!!!!

I am so grateful for my new daughter-in-law, who is so homesick (her family lives several states away), but she's just a doll, and the daughter of my heart, and she's looking forward to spending time with us this Christmas, so I'm hoping I can make it as special as I can for her!
Thank you so much for participating in this hop and for the generous giveaway! I'm so happy to have found another author!

Happy Holidays!

Well, to be totally honest....I am so beyond grateful that the Love of My Life has kept his job, allowing me to still be a SAHM(even tho the kids are 21 and 18(next month)), and deal with my health issues. And the health issues I am grateful that they are not any worse than they could be. ;)

Happy Holidays to all!! ;)

Hello Juniper,
What I'm grateful for this Christmas is that I still have my Dad with me this Christmas. He was in a coma for almost 8 months while suffering 5 stokes, is now on kidney diaylsis, lost 102 lbs....but last Thurs. he walked out of the hospital, well with a walker & help on all sides of him in case his legs gave out....but my Father is with Us & he is able to talk & I was able to give him a standing Hug for the first time in almost a year. That is what I am sooooooooooo Grateful for this Christmas & ever Christmas in the future. My Dad is like a Best Friend to me, I missed him dearly when he was in a coma...but Our entire Family has him back now. I Love Him Very Much.
Take Care & have a Blessed Holiday Seasin,
Renee' S.

I'm grateful for my friends and family for keeping me sane! I started back to school this fall and work fulltime all day so I have been exhausted, moody, and unavailable. They have been so understanding though and give me constant pick me ups whenever needed!

I'm so grateful to still have my parents with us for this holiday season. My Mom is 88 and wheelchair bound and my Dad is 90 and fighting lung cancer. To still have them here is nothing less than a miracle.
