Top 10 Book Favorites of 2017

I love reading – everything about it! Stories, worlds, characters, bookstores, new book smell, finding written notes on old pages, rereading something and it hitting me the same way it did the very first time — I’ve learned so much from books and have been an avid reader my entire life. My favorite genres have … Continue reading

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2015!

Here it is again – the infamous “New Year’s Resolutions/End of the Year” post! Gym sales team members everywhere are preparing for their big bonuses over the next month as people flock to create better versions of themselves while spouting slogans such as “NEW YEAR, NEW YOU!”   Instead of some huge list of ways … Continue reading

Our Savannah Trip!

So we actually took this trip around the beginning of last December, but with the rush of Christmas followed by starting my new semester, I’ve been too swamped to actually update about it! One of my longest online friends was about to move across the country to midwest and since we had been living just … Continue reading

2014: New Year’s Resolutions!

I will never not make New Year’s Resolutions. I love lists too much. Sorry not sorry. 1) Stop procrastinating. I have so many books, video games and movies in my Netflix queue that I haven’t even glanced at since buying them or adding them and it’s pretty sad. My unread book pile is larger than my … Continue reading

Season’s Greetings !

Today is the last day of my Fall semester and I am so grateful that it’s done. This semester was emotionally tumultuous for so many different reasons, but I guess that’s to be expected for my first term back after an almost three year absence! I did get some AMAZING news a few days before … Continue reading

Resolutions, 2013

Every year I make a list of very specific resolutions that are more like a chore list of the things I would normally like to do. This makes me feel overwhelmed by them and that results in 80% of them being incomplete the following December. This year I want to focus on living a less … Continue reading

Walking in a Winter Wonderland!

I was born and raised in Florida. I’ve spent winters at Disney World sweating my ass off, by the pool, at the beach and surrounded by green grass and palm trees. So when I say that one of my main reasons for moving was to experience a real winter, you should really understand what I … Continue reading

Merry Christmas!

Updating from my poor little phone has been pretty difficult, so I’m sorry for the lack of posts over the last few months! The good news is that we should be getting a laptop soon, since our desktop computers are still in Florida, so updates will eventually be a bit more regular! 🙂 It’s been … Continue reading
