Book Blog Tour--A Surprise Ending

A trip to New England in fall has long been on my bucket list and this year hubby Ben and I decided to finally do it. I booked our flights and planned our agenda way back in spring, including a few days in Boston around the weekend of September 23.   When September rolled around, I found out that Suzanne, the winner of the book giveaway (week 6) worked in Boston and wanted her book mailed to her at her workplace. I figured, why not drop it off in person and surprise her?  This is how my devious little mind works. The opportunity was just too perfect to pass up. 
So on Monday morning we showed up at her office and the receptionist called her down and I handed her her gift.  What fun!
Suzanne works on the 35th floor and invited us up to her office for a breathtaking view of Boston harbor.
After we'd said our good-byes, it was time to walk around this beautiful, historic city.
First, to the site of the Boston Tea Party.
And then to Paul Revere's house.
He's a pretty big guy around here--there are statues and plaques about him everywhere.
Watching a game at Fenway Park was a highlight for Ben this weekend.
And stopping here for a drink was a highlight for me!

So the moral of the story is... be careful when entering one of my giveaways.  I just might drop in at your place when you're least expecting it and surprise you!


  1. It looks like you had a wonderful trip and a nice surprise for suzanne. I live in RI, so not far away and plan on heading north for a late fall trip. I also made some of your burlap pumpkins, and linked to your site, so others could enjoy making them too.


  2. How nice of you to do that for her!!! She must have been so excited.
    Looks like you had a lovely time. The fall winds are whipping the leaves off the trees today here in Maine.

  3. What a fun way to deliver your book with a big surprise. She will never forget that. Looks like a wonderful trip.

  4. Thank you again, Cheryl. That was the best way to win a prize! I'm so glad you both had a good time in Boston. I'm already cutting pieces for the Twilight Stars quilt!
