Anything Goes: Mia runs a Blog Hop!

This month, anything goes! And I have a surprise guest, Mia. She's a mother and the heroine from my latest release, Because This Is Forever, and she will be running this month's blog hop.

I have to tell you, it's nice to seat back and let someone else take over for a change...
-----
Hi! I'm Mia, mother to an energetic four-year-old. My son, Mikey, keeps me busy and keeps me on my toes so it's nice to take a break and do something different--like run this month's giveaway hop. As a mother to a young, easily excitable little boy, I thrive on convenience and comfort, which is why you'll usually find me in camis and long, cotton skirts with my hair pulled back in a ponytail. During the summer we spent with Nate that was go-to style, but you'll have to read more about that eventful summer from my story, Because This Is Forever...

For this giveaway, I've partnered with Ms. Lena Hart to give away some of my favorite items, including a cool t-shirt, a tote, a few of my recipes, and some fun author swag. Just leave a comment and let us know what you do to unwind when you're not being a mother, wife, sister, daughter. Take care!

~Mia

Sometimes I play sudoka or bejeweled. Other times I read a book. A hot shower and pampering. Depends on my mood.
