On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
You may be thinking that if your genuine, true love gave you a gift under $10 you might be a tad bit disappointed. BUT…I can say without reservation, the dollar amount on a gift is not what’s important. As the old saying goes, “It’s the thought that counts.” True. The most important thing is that you put your heart into what you give.
My husband has a hard time picking out a gift for me. He always says, “Just tell me what you want and I’ll get it for you.” Maybe you think that’s a nice concept. Who wouldn’t want to receive something they want? Sounds simple. However, my favorite gifts from him are those that he chooses himself. Items that caught his eye and he knew right away I’d love. Those are the gifts that I remember forever. My most favorite is a glass rose that sits atop a small, round mirror with the words, “I love you,” etched in the glass.
A gift that will never fail is something you make with your own two hands. Find a fancy Christmas plate and then bake some of those Swedish Sugar Cookies I told you about on Day One. I promise that your gift will be loved – and – gobbled up. The plate will be treasured forever. Granted, the person you give it to might give it back next year begging for more, but that would only prove you’d succeeded.
Today, I’m gifting you with an introduction to another author! I’m happy to welcome Jennifer Faye to my blog!
A Princess by Christmas by Jennifer Faye
A royal kiss under the mistletoe…
Prince Alexandro Castanovo arrives in snowy New York intent on protecting his royal family from scandal. And when Reese Harding—down-to-earth and heart-stoppingly beautiful—finds room for him at her inn, it seems like the perfect twist of fate.
Not long ago Reese’s world came crumbling down, shaking her foundations. But this enigmatic stranger intrigues her! She’s learned to be wary of secrets…but when she discovers Alex’s true identity, might there be enough magic in the air to make this regular American girl a princess by Christmas…?

About the Author
I currently reside in Pennsylvania with my very patient husband, one amazing daughter (the other remarkable daughter has flown the coop to chase her own dreams) and two spoiled rotten cats. When I’m not glued to my laptop (which isn’t often) or enjoying some family time, I like reading, cross-stitch, embroidery, quilting, knitting, hockey (go Pittsburgh Penguins!), and gardening.
