This last week, I celebrated my birthday. I begged and pleaded with Mr. Johns to let me post pictures of us all masked up, but he’s very stubborn about these things. (No family photos posted, even if we’re in masks.) So you’re out of luck there, BUT, you should know that I argued for you very eloquently saying how nice it would be to show my dear readers what my guy looks like. Maybe it could even be proof to old acquaintances that after fifteen years, we are indeed still married! πŸ˜‰ He didn’t fall for any of it, unfortunately. But I feel it’s important for you to know that I did try.

Having a birthday during Covid is a bit difficult. We normally get together with my parents for my birthday, and this year, we opted out of a meal, and just had cake–with my parents on one side of the room, and me, Mr. Johns and our son on the other. Then we all masked up again. So it was a very Covid-conscious event.

My father always makes me a gluten-free birthday cake, and this year he made a delicious cake!

No candle to blow, of course. And it tasted as good as it looked!

Then we watched the live action Beauty and the Beast, which has been a favorite all the way back to the Disney animated version. I mean, really, who doesn’t fall for the gruff and beefy beast? And yes, I recognize that I did marry my very own. πŸ˜‰

It was a very nice birthday, and I’m thrilled to move forward in a brand new turn around the sun. There are books to write, and books to read, and books to buy! ❀

And speaking of writing books, don’t forget about my newest releases! A PRECIOUS CHRISTMAS GIFT will be on the shelves soon, and JEB’S WIFE is already there!
