These Green Walls

I popped the cover on the can of primer and began painting the hallway of our apartment today.  He didn't want me to paint, I knew it.  But I've been on Pinterest a little too much lately and was determined to give our home a facelift. "Ugh, I hate painting." Which he totally does and … Continue reading These Green Walls

World Book Day: Children’s Books

This may just be my largest/longest post in this mini series.  As a child there wasn't many times I was caught without my nose in a book.  I would have to be told several times to leave it away from the dinner table, I would take it in the bath with me, the car, shopping … Continue reading World Book Day: Children’s Books

World Book Day: Romance

A little less my forte, but deserving of a post of its own all the same. Romantic novels are usually my turn-to when I'm feeling overwhelmed with school.  Similar to those who have guilty pleasures in the form of a television show, I have guilty pleasures in the form of books.  When I'm feeling bogged … Continue reading World Book Day: Romance

World Book Day: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller

So when I received an email earlier notifying me of World Book Day - also … Continue reading World Book Day: Business

Finding A Happy Medium In Tradition

A few years ago we decided it was time to shake up our holiday traditions some and I have to say, I couldn't be happier.  I was beginning to dread the holidays - the shopping; the cooking; the hosting; the cleanup - not to mention the million little things that go into preparing or each … Continue reading Finding A Happy Medium In Tradition

My Birthday Wish

I'm aiming to make this year's birthday a little different, in a huge way, and I'm reaching out to my friends and family to help me.
