Celebrate: Where Did Winter Go? & Giveaways

Temperatures hit 70 in Egypt this week! I was walking around without a jacket or scarf today. In fact, so far the winter, where temps usually fluctuate between 45 and 60, has been unusually mild. 

I'm not complaining exactly, only I'm worried that the high temps now do not bode well for the summer where temps normally average 90-105. What if they go higher this year? Nooooo --- I'm a chubby chicken that broils easily in the hot sun!

Have the temps been unseasonably warm where you live? 

Celebrate's own Tanya Miranda has released 
a new book!

       Finding romance gets harder after so many years together, but Isabel and Leo make it work. 
       This collection of short stories takes a peek into their lives as a competitive couple continually outwitting one another, as parents to two children who are too wise for their young ages, and as grownups who shoot foam dart guns like military snipers while attempting to act like responsible adults. 
       Between sassy kids and demanding careers, heartbreaks and frustrations, a quick kiss or a love tap are sometimes the only intimacy they can get. And when the moment comes, they jump all over it. 
       These are their stories.


Tanya Miranda runs 5Ks, writes, and creates line art when the weather keeps her indoors. She loves reading and writing about real life love stories, tales of heart ache, and every other type of emotional journey life offers. Her kids bring her loads of joy and tons of material for her writing. If only they would stop growing up...
