Great Christmas Tree Tour 2016: MK Meredith

I'm thrilled to share on Cheryl St.John's Christmas Tree Tour again this year!

Christmas has always been my favorite holiday season. It is filled with lovely memories of my mother, the music, being with family, being loved. Now that I have a family of my own, I want to pass on the same joy to my children, I want Christmas to remind them of family and giving and the unique peace found within our home.

The weekend after Thanksgiving it is our tradition to decorate our Christmas tree. 
There is no theme, no color pattern, instead it is all about memories. Homemade ornaments, gifted ornaments, ornaments from my and my husband's childhood. The tree ends up having a beautiful continuity to it, of old and new, fancy and plain, with each year expanding our children's very own collections that we will send off with them when they have a tree of their own. 

When the tree is up and the lights are lit, I put my favorite traditional Christmas music on in the background, Oh Holy Night, A Christmas Song, Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire, White Christmas...I adore them all.

Brian's favorite is Up on the Roof Top, Anya loves Last Christmas by Wham, and Brody is a Jingle Bells boy through and through. We listen to them all, we drink egg nog, and we ooh and aah over every ornament as it goes up on the tree.

I hope they always remember, I hope it brings them joy. That is all I want...to leave them with that warm fuzzy feeling of having a tribe, of being an important part of something special, of our intention to make them happy.

And I hope the same for all of you.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and may your memories be made of love.

In the spirit of the holiday season, I am giving away two ecopies of my contemporary romance, Seducing the Tycoon. 


About Seducing the Tycoon
International tycoon Drago De Luca has the world at his feet and he knows it. But back home in Italy, his beloved grandmother's family inn is on the verge of closing down for good, thanks to hotshot American heiress, Chase Huntington, and her new hotel. Drago has to protect Nonna's inn, even if it means getting close enough to Chase to convince her she needs to leave. But the more time he spends with Chase, the more he's drawn to her passion, her love of his culture, and the way she looks in those Louis Vuitton heels.

Chase Huntington would give anything to enjoy her time with charming, sexy-as-hell Drago in the style capital of the world, but she has to make sure the new Huntington hotel opens successfully. How else can she prove she's not just fashionista with a fortune—she’s an heiress savvy enough to take over the family’s biggest hotel back in California? But somewhere between boutiques and business plans, she falls head over Louboutins for Drago. But when Drago's true motive for spending so much time with her comes to light, it could destroy everything Chase built and everything she thought she found in Italy.


Hugs, loves, and peanut butter!
