The whole #topnine craze is making its way around Instagram again this year and being the good little social media user that I am, of course, I went straight over to to see my results: Of course I love all of these pictures but I’m not convinced that they really capture what 2017 was…(image)

I’m still a little bit in denial that this year is almost over. The fall season has really flown by at lightning speed for me. End of the year posts are starting to make their way around the internet so I thought I’d take a moment to reflect on my favorite books from the past…(image)

I feel like I was a little lackadaisical with my posting last month. I’d like to say it’s because I’ve been uber plugged into life and enjoying all the little moments. While that was certainly true sometimes I think it’s also just that it keeps getting cold and gray which results in me hermiting in…(image)

You know those authors who come out with a new book and you know you are going to buy it pretty much sight unseen? That’s what this week’s Top 5 Tuesday (hosted by the Bionic Book Worm) is all about. I think this list has shifted for me a bit over the years as new…(image)

I feel like it’s been Halloween for a good week and a half what with all the parties and trunk or treat festivities, but tonight is the actual Big Night and my kids are raring and ready to go.  When it comes to costumes, are you Team Scary or Team Sweet? We are probably somewhere…(image)
