October in Review

October - ah! What a month! I complain about busyness often, but this month really was the busiest I've had in perhaps ever. The beginning of October consisted of quite a bit of babysitting and a number of morning shifts at the coffee shop I work at. (Morning shifts meaning I woke up at 4:30... Continue Reading →

Bookish Memories

My love of reading I owe almost wholly to Laura Ingalls and her Little House on the Prairie books. I actually remember receiving an abridged version of one of the novels sometime in kindergarten, before my reading skills had progressed to chapter books. Most Christmas presents have escaped my memory, but this little book –... Continue Reading →

March in Review

April is here? Already? Months used to drag on endlessly when I was little and now I blink and the month is already gone. It seems the older you get the faster time moves. Movies The Notebook  This actually was my first time seeing this (I know, I know, what a shameful teenage girl I... Continue Reading →
