V Is For Vince

I just did a lot of visiting this past weekend, with it being our Thanksgiving up here in Canada.
Went to my sisters and my mother-in-laws on two separate days and ate tons of turkey.
But today I introduce you to the man who puts up with me and my crazy ways.
Vince.
My Vinny Barbarino.
Some of you might be too young to know who he is, but lemme just say John Travolta was the bees knees when I was a kid, and Vince is my bees knees now.
We met through a mutual friend, and have been inseparable 13 years this Boxing Day.
 He and I have been through many trials in that time and I know looking back we are forever meant to be.
Sounds a little cliché, but you just know when you will be with that person until the end of time. I know it's that way for us.
His family and I get along famously, and same as my family with his. We have all come together to be one large extended family. My mother has even dined at my mother-in-laws when she comes to town. They all get along as well.
Look, I've been with him since I was a young lady of 23. I am now almost 40. I feel like I have grown up with him, and he has seen me at my worst... my most immature time. If he can put up with me through that then we got it made!
He is kind, loving, treats his parents with respect. He is responsible, funny and always has my back. He takes care of me, my children, and my family when needed. He is all I will ever need.
He also leads me to believe that there really is someone out there for everyone. Your other half. If you're not with him or her now, I believe in my heart-of-hearts that you will be one day. Don't give up on love, 'cause when you find it, it won't give up on you.
Love you Drib.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
