I'm Back!

Hi everyone, Cassandra here! I don't know if anyone is still following this blog at all--it's been SO long since I've posted anything! *hides face* I am more active with my author Facebook page these days than here, so if you want to keep more up-to-date, feel free to head over to https://www.facebook.com/CassandraMDriver/

If you haven't already heard, I got married September 2019, and if you've yet to be introduced...this is my husband T.J.! Here are just a few pictures to give you a peak into our special day. <3

Continually praising the Lord for bringing this godly man into my life. "The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy." ~Psalm 126:3

I know this was brief; just wanted to post a quick update. I have also just finished writing the first book in a new series, so I'm off to work on editing now! Lord willing, this book should release later this year!

I'd love to hear from you too! If anyone reads this post, please drop a comment below letting me know what YOU have been up to. Blessings!

New Release!

So I haven't posted here for quite some time, but I have big news to share!

Back in the fall I was blessed with the opportunity of signing on with Tate Publishing. Not only did they accept my newest manuscript, but they said I will be able to transfer The Lauren Series over as well!

The months have flown by and now my newest novel, Through His Eyes is already released! Here is a link to the press release on Tate's news site: http://wp.me/p72Cgp-7mX which tells about the book.

It is available via three outlets right now--Lord willing, more to come in the future! Praying He takes it where He would have it :)

Prairie Bonnets

Do y'all remember a few months ago when I did a post about making bonnets? Well, they're now up and for sale on Dean Butler's eBay store! So, if you know of anyone on the lookout for a bonnet to complete their prairie costume, one of these might be an option!

They come in three different colors: pink, blue and green, size small or large.

OBX Post #3

This morning after breakfast we made a visit to Currituck, where we climbed the lighthouse, and toured The Whalehead Club--a home built in the 1920's. Take a look below! :)

Currituck Beach Light Station

As this is likely my favorite lighthouse, this time I climbed to the top along with Mother and Pop. And read this interesting fact inside:

"Elevated sources of light have been used to guide ships through perilous waters since the 7th century B.C. One of the most famous of the ancient lights was the Pharos, built in Alexsandria, Egypt, about 300 B.C. A huge bonfire was kept lit atop an ornamental tower of 450 feet to direct ships into the harbor."


A peaceful place to sit

As we headed up the hill to visit Whalehead, we saw lovely flowers and quite a large group of Canadian Geese with their goslings. We were blessed to be here at this time, because right now there is no cost to tour this mansion-like home.

You can stand and stare at the trees forever: their strong, gnarly branches and full crowns spreading over the green lawn. They look as if they could be trees straight out of a fairy tale! And the photos really don't do them justice.

These photos below were taken in front of the Whalehead boathouse.

Chel snapped some pictures of me too--she is good at the artistic angles. :)
We returned "home" for lunch, Josh and I played some pool, and then I sat to write to you! Hope your day is going well and filled with blessings. :)

OBX Post #2

Yesterday I did not have time enough to sit down and write a post, but I am here today! Below are some more pictures: at Bodie Lighthouse and around Roanoke Island. :)

Josh, Chelsea and Einstein, as we wait at the bottom.
Chel wasted no time in pulling out her sketchbook :)

An attempt at a selfie with Einstein ;)

After setting out from the lighthouse, we headed a little down the road to Roanoke Island, one of my favorite places to visit in the Outer Banks (OBX). :)

Representation of 16th century ship Elizabeth II. 
You can go aboard that ship to explore, which is quite interesting! And costumed staff act in time period. :D   

Chel with her pirate friend :P

I have never actually been in this shop, but I always like to grab a photo,
because it makes me think of a good friend :)

I liked how the evening sun shot rays from behind.

It is a quiet sort of town, with friendly people and a laid-back atmosphere. We had dinner on an outdoor patio, that even allowed Einstein to dine along with us! :D

Hello, from the Outer Banks

Hi everyone! We are currently on our yearly trip to the Outer Banks, North Carolina, and I thought I would share some pictures with you throughout the week!

Today we visited a beach in Corolla, where the Currituck Banks Estuarine Reserve is located. We set out to enjoy the ocean spray, sunshine, and...to look for the wild horses. :) We were blessed to see around half a dozen! We watched them traverse the shoreline and later saw them move up into the dunes. And we all laughed when a small, mischievous-looking group of them approached a fisherman's cart, checking out all his supplies. :D And the fisherman could only watch, because people are allowed to get no closer than 50 feet of the lovely creatures.

(You can see the fisherman in the background, though his cart is not visible in this shot.)


 Einstein is my back-seat companion and turned to let me get a shot of him between his spells of watching out the windows. :)


When we got out to walk we could get better pictures, plus cool off a bit in the water's edge. :)


Love this snapshot of Mother :)


And down here you are actually allowed to drive ON THE BEACH! It is true that the tire tracks take away from the natural appearance of the beach, but it is a completely different experience from driving on pavement--and you sure can't beat the view! (Plus it's really fun to bounce through the ruts left by the other vehicles ;)

Chelsea behind the wheel

And I got a turn too


So now you have seen what I have been up to today! And I know generally my blog posts generally focus on writing and projects, but God's creation is so beautiful, so perhaps you shall enjoy seeing photographic captures of it. :)

And to add in some book-stuff, I will tell you, this morning I worked on some outlining for the fifth Lauren book. Book four is already outlined. I just need to write it!
