Are you Watching the Olympics?

I have to admit that I love the Olympics ... those athletes and their amazingly inspiring stories just warm my heart.  But some are also so heartbreaking, like the Canadian skater, whose mother died of a heart attack just days before her debut on Olympic ice.  So sad. 

Though I thought I'd be more "into" ice skating and ice dancing, I'm finding myself incredibly drawn to speed skating, short track skating, both men and women's downhill skiing and I'm incredibly fascinated by snowboarding.  It's newer and different and I've really never paid that much attention to the sport before this.  So it's new to me and refreshingly vivid and fun to watch. 
Here's Apollo breaking the US Winter Games record for most medals - 7 in all so far!
I'm cheering on our athletes and have become a huge fan of Apollo Anton Ohno.  I was a fan before, but then I watched him dance on Dancing With Stars and loved, loved, loved him!  What a motivated athlete!   He seems truly humble and nice ... we need to see more of that in our sports figures, don't you agree?

Lindsay Vonn, the US Hockey Team, Shaun White and so many others have been truly incredible.  There's too many athletes for me to mention, but I'm proud of them all and know what determination they have, how much they've sacrificed and how truly passionate they are for their sport.

I'm so proud of our Olympic teams!

From Duty to Desire

He’d kept a promise to marry his best friend’s widow. But even an obligatory marriage could not diminish the hunger vintner Tony Carlino still felt for Rena Montgomery. Foolishly, he’d walked away from her once before…and she had never forgiven him. As far as she was concerned, no one would be toasting this arrangement any time soon.

She had married Tony only for the safety his name—and money—would give her, her winery…and her unborn child. Never could she allow herself to reveal the desire she felt for her new husband. For their marriage was meant to be only about business. Neither dared speak one word about love.
