WHAT DO THESE BOOKS HAVE IN COMMON?
I have so much to be thankful for this year….Especially when I consider what life was like this time last year…. I am now living the “new” normal following Hurricane Sandy. And I have to admit I like how Sandy changed me, and many around me. I am thankful that we have a new addition to our family. It has been amazing watching Lucy transform from a tiny kitten to confident feline who now not only rules this home but us as well! Never a day goes by that we don’t miss our tailless wonder Alex, but Lucy has helped mend our broken heart….
But most of all I am thankful that I was able to accomplish my dream of writing my memoir, Dangled Carat! And I am thankful that I had such amazing support by my blog friends! I couldn’t have done it without you!

Hilary had gotten used to dating the commitment-phobic Marc. They had a great relationship—why rush into things? But after four years together, their friends decided to take matters into their own hands, pushing Marc to propose. Unfortunately, Marc still wasn’t ready—and their friends’ meddling in the form of a faux engagement party led to a disastrous New Year’s Eve that brought their relationship to a turning point.
In this relatable, playful memoir, Hilary reminisces about her life before Marc—from the awkward teenage years to her early relationships and, finally, to the day she met Marc and realized that she really wanted to see him again. Through the ease of their early time together up until that fateful New Year’s Eve, Hilary shares the details and considers how Marc’s inability to commit led her to find an inner strength and confidence she didn’t know she possessed.
For anyone who has ever dated a commitment-phobe, who has found their patience wearing thin, or who has sat around wondering if he is ever going to pop the question while trying to remain the picture of patience and grace, Hilary’s humorous and honest story will hit home.
