Welcome! Christmastime has always been my favorite time of the year! I love everything about it ... the cooler weather; snow; gatherings with friends, family and loved ones; sharing good food; exchanging meaningful gifts; decorating the house and the tree; the smell of woodsmoke in the air ... the list goes on.
Having a multitude of heritages (Italian, Russian, Irish, English, French and Spanish) in our family, we share several traditions during this time of year ... from St. Nicholas Day on December 6th to Eastern Orthodox Christmas in January!

Here's an little bit about Skin Deep ...
Emily Monroe, a statuesque high school English teacher, is convinced that getting a tattoo to cover the remnants of her brush with Morphea is the only option left to open the door to self-acceptance, allowing her to finally move on with her life after the devastating diagnosis left more than physical scars in its wake.
Rick Sutton, owner of Skin Deep, a successful tattoo shop, has his own cross to bear. Crippling guilt and the specter of unrequited justice overshadow every aspect of his life, trapping him within the haunted corridors of his heart and soul; until the day Emily walks into his shop.
Instantly, he recognizes a kindred spirit in Emily, and a tenuous bond is formed. When the intimidating yet teddy-bear of a man offers her a glimpse into his passionate side, she is moved by what she sees and takes a leap of faith. Together they traverse the physical and emotional journey of freeing themselves of their perceived flaws, an erotic undertaking that proves to them beauty is only Skin Deep.
