My birthday: Destin beach, a surprise visit, Japanese hibachi grill, Starbucks gift cards, songs, and more

Yesterday was my birthday. My husband Ray’s gift to me was my recent week-long trip to Destin beach, Florida for a week alone (August 15-22, 2022). I’ve been praying for over 3 years to travel there. One day I found a reduced plane fare online and Ray said, “Book it!” so I did immediately!

Destin beach is gorgeous with soft, white sand and clear, blue-green water. I desperately needed this time of relaxation on the beach and to work on my speaking and writing biz. You can see my recent vlog, My Happy Place, here at YouTube. It is my 11th vlog about the trip.

Ray also gave me a pretty card with a Starbucks gift card and took me out for supper to a Japanese restaurant in Lee’s Summit, MO, called Siki.

We got dressed up to go out, a rare occasion. I found a pretty teal, inexpensive dress on Amazon and an elegant but cheap necklace and earrings from Paparazzi. I already had my bracelet and black shoes with a slight heel. The dress had high reviews on Amazon and was soft and comfortable. Ray wore a charcoal-grey, button-up shirt and beige slacks.

We had a nice, funny chef who cooked us delicious food.

He couldn’t put on the usual great show of fire, because there was a toddler girl there at the hibachi table, who screamed and cried when he first made the flames appear. I’m sure this was a disappointment to the chef. Everyone else at the table was related to her, so they understood. Ray and I are parents so we got it, too. We remember those days! They grow up so fast!

The beach is my happy place

What is your happy place? Mine is the beach. Specifically, Destin beach, Florida. I’ve been praying for over three years to travel there. It is the setting for the first fiction book that I wrote, Storm Tossed. The Destin beach is gorgeous with soft, white sand and clear, blue-green water.

I recently went there for a week, staying in a beautiful Air BnB. It was an amazing, fun time.  I give Jesus Christ all the glory for getting me there. I’m so thankful to my husband Ray for his support for me to do this, and for his, my daughters Heather’s and Leah’s, my sister Maria’s and my intercessors’ prayers for me as I was traveling.

I plan to do some blogging about it here at BethJones.net about the trip, but meanwhile you can watch my vlogs on my YouTube channel by clicking here.

Stay tuned for more of them soon!

Taco ‘Bout Fun! Back to School Book-Writing fiesta

Taco ‘Bout Fun! I’m so excited to announce my upcoming live and virtual event, Back to School Book-Writing Fiesta. 

School is back in session soon. For kids and adults, too!

It’s a great time to apply what we’ve already learned in life and business. And to learn NEW things!

I’d like to invite you to join me for my chips & salsa, taco event. (In person or virtually) This will be a “Lunch and Learn” event, open to men and women. 

After we eat, I’ll be sharing a short speaking presentation on how to write (or finish) your book -or to write a new one! You can create a book in a weekend.

As an international speaker and an author of 25 books (and still writing), I have learned a thing or two about what to do (and what NOT to do!). 

It is on August 5, 2022, at 12 noon – 2:30 p.m. CST, at Jose Pepper restaurant in Belton, Missouri (south of Kansas City).

If you don’t live locally, I’m also offering a Facebook Live video for a greatly reduced price, so you won’t miss out on my speaking presentation to inspire, encourage, and motivate you to write your book(s).

Married couples also get a special rate.

You’ll be invited to join my Facebook private pop-up group when you register and will be eligible to win the random-selected gift bag. Maybe you’ll be the winner! 

It will be fun!

To find out more, just click here. I can’t wait to see you there!
