Mothers have taken over my blog this month - and they've brought a giveaway, so be sure to enter! Today Mrs. Elizabeth Luparell from Celia Breslin's book, Jasmine Moon is here with us.
We're so glad you could join us, Mrs. Luparell. Perhaps you could share with us what you see as the most challenging aspect of motherhood?
Oh my goodness, my dear, mothers face so many parenting challenges. When my three three Wolf shifter children were toddlers, for example, I wished I could clone myself to keep up with all of them, especially when they would run off in different directions in the forest around our home.
That would be challenging! Now, what would you say is your proudest mom moment?
Bless your heart for asking. My youngest child and only daughter, Lexi is marrying her childhood friend and soul mate, Jake. I’m so proud of her for following her heart and trusting in love.
My mom used to say “I’ve had it up to here!” and “Who do you think you are?” a lot. What is your go-to momism?
::chuckles:: “Take it outside, Luparells!” My children were so energetic, all day, every day. I can’t tell you how much broken furniture and other household items we lost to their antics.
I can imagine! So tell us, what is the most valuable thing your mother taught you?
When your life feels out of control, when you feel like you’re hanging on by one, weak thread… Stop. Close your eyes. And breathe. It’s important to take small moments for yourself.
Sound advice! So tell us about your kids. Do they take after you at all?
I have three wonderful children, all adults now, and hopefully making me grandchildren very soon! My eldest, Evan is in the technology business with his brother Ross. Their younger sister Lexi is a wonderful artist. I’d like to think they take after me a little bit. They have my eyes. Whiskey eyes, my husband says. My kids love the outdoors, as do I. As for their personalities, they’re as different as night and day, unique and special. Thanks for asking.
How about some This or That?
Bacon & eggs or cereal & milk?
Bacon and eggs. Wolf shifters require plentiful protein.
Themed party or meet for drinks?
Cosmopolitan or beer?
Guinness. And whiskey.
Mini-van or Cooper mini?
Home cooked or take out?
Home-cooked. Preferably by my gifted sister-in-law.
Paper plates or Fine China?
Both. Depends on the occasion, dear.
Thanks so much for being here, Mrs. Luparell! Here's more about the book, Jasmine Moon:
Tech mogul and workaholic wolf Evan Luparell has little time for distractions but takes a break for his brother’s wedding in South Dakota. When asked to escort another wedding attendee from the airport to Los Lobos, he agrees. Then he meets the curvy spitfire, and she ignores him.
Designer and wolf Mina Carver didn’t mean to be rude to the handsome, glowering man claiming to be her ride, but she was busy working. Now she must endure a ride to the Black Hills with the cranky but sexy dominant wolf. Unexpected mating energy sparks between them, but still—should she dismiss, or kiss him?
Kisses win and they agree upon a no-strings fling. But with each wedding activity throwing them together, and their powerful chemistry and mate compatibility complicating matters, can two workaholics truly have their fun then walk away?
