Happy Imbolg!

Celtic Triple Goddess Brigit
Today is a fun little holiday and one of my favorites because it celebrates breaking the grip of winter. February 2nd was once the pagan Irish holiday of “Imbolg”, which means belly or womb and signified Mother Earth was waking up once again and ready to give birth to spring.

Hooray!

It was also the Celtic goddess Brigit’s day. It marked a turning point in the dead of winter that candles and fires were lit in her name to celebrate the fact that the world was about to become a little brighter. Candlemas and Ground Hog’s Day are contemporary versions of this same tradition.

Today is a terrific day to light and enjoy your candles or fireplace and say a little prayer for an early spring!

In other news, “Nice Package” got a Top-Pick review from Miz Loves Books. I was mighty grateful!
This is what Miz Vanilla Heat had to say about “Nice Package”:

“Wowser! If you’re looking for a rush of emotion and a way to kickstart your libido, stop right where you are. Tap those keys and zip straight over to Ellora’s Cave to pick up your copy of Nice Package by Katalina Leon. The sexual tension breathes fire and will smoke up your entire house. Trust me. This book sizzles, simmers, and boils over with everything you want in an erotic romance.

It’s like looking up at the sun! Put on those special protective glasses when reading.

Ms. Leon starts the heat on page one and keeps it coming. But don’t for one minute believe that this book lacks story or emotion. It’s well-written and sure to satisfy all your needs. This is one of those books you’ll want to take to bed and read to your husband. Yep, it’s that kind of book. I guarantee your dear, sweet man will come to attention in more ways than one!

Dishwashing liquid has never been so sexy.



1.  “Where was a well-hung Viking warlord when you really needed one?” (But don’t worry. Our heroine was NOT disappointed.)

2.   “Take it,” he spoke softly. “You earned it.” (You have only one guess on exactly what it was he    wanted her to take. My lips are sealed, readers. Let your imagination have at it.)

3.  “I’m going to ask for the panties now.” (Do you really need a commentary from me?)
I’m Miz Vanilla Heat and I like it that way, but I like it vanilla with fudge syrup and nuts, too. There’s nothing wrong with exploring new and oh-so-sexy ways to connect with your lover, and Ms. Leon has given me plenty of ideas. She cranks up the heat and proves that vanilla couples can enjoy other flavors as well. A rainbow of tastes is coming your way with Nice Package. Break out the toys! I’m looking forward to reading a lot more of Ms. Leon’s books. Hot Stuff. Top Pick. One of the Best. Rawwrrrrr!”

Thank you Miz Vanilla Heat! (I wonder how Vanilla she really is? I might check back in a few months just to see if she’s gone butternut-fudge-ripple on us! lol)

  5. I hope the little ground hog isn't messing with us! With last night's snow storm, my hubby not only had to dig out the driveway and sidewalk this morning, he had to shovel a path through the back yard so my dogs can get out there to do their business!!

    BIG congrats on the fantastic review for Nice Package, Kat!!

    Tessie hold on and stay warm. Can you image how hard it would be to do your business outdoors in this bitter cold? Poor doggies!

  7. Learned something new from your blog...other reasons to celebrate Groundhog Day! Today is my husband's birthday, and I can't wait to say, "Happy Imbolg Day...go light some candles" to him and have him say, "Huh?"

  9. Hi Amber and Marianne!
    Marianne, say Happy Birthday to your Husband and light those beautiful candles!
    Hi Amber, I hope you don't have to leave your house today and can enjoy a peaceful day indoors with some of your favorite candles.
    I asked my husband to build a fire in our front fireplace to cheer up the house this morning-burrrr! lol
