Unforgettable

It hasn’t been quite one month since my wedding day, and I already love thinking back on the day and looking at the photos from the day. The day is unforgettable, but the tiny details that made it so could be easily forgotten. So I don’t forget the little details, I’m making a list of…

New Growth

When I spend time with friends, I am usually reminded of how quickly our lives are changing. I can usually identify the change happening in my life but it is always highlighted when I am around friends and I see how natural life changes have affected them. In my own life, my changes include figuring…

Delicious!

Vibrant India, by Chitra Agrawal, is a beautifully designed cookbook that informs the reader about home cooked vegetarian foods from Southern India. I appreciate how the author explains and describes the various spices common in her recipes; it helps the novice cook understand the spices before attempting any of the dishes. Most of the recipes do…

Yes it is!

I love how the title of this book, “Is the Bible Good for Women”, really draws the reader in. I had a friend see this book on my kitchen table and wonder what it was about. I plan to lend it to her next. I think I also chose this book because the title was…

Spring Fling

I am so happy it’s spring! I am a little confused as to why we never got a good snow in Kentucky because it makes it seem like winter never really came, (…global warming…). But I am still happy the green grass is here, flowers are popping up through the brilliant-green grass and beautiful, warm…

I am not a Selfie Pro.

Don’t be a hero, if you take your own engagement photos be prepared for a little stress.

Lovely & Informative Postcards

Maybe it’s because I’m an animal person, but I LOVE these postcards. Each animal featured has a cute drawing and a few informative tidbits. You could easily add some color to the postcard with a marker or colored pencil before sending it out which would make your recipient all the happier! The postcards are divided…

Eating Beautifully In My Future

Eat Beautiful by Wendy Rowe is, for lack of a better word, a beautiful book. It is educational, practical and perfectly organized. From the foreword by Sienna Miller to each recipe, broken down by season, the books organization makes it easy for a person to pick it up and gain useful information in a short…

Change

Change can be good, it can be scary, and it can happen so fast. I am in the midst of a storm of change right now. I look toward the near future and, God-willing, I see myself living with my beau in his cozy little farm-house. I am also thinking about change in a year…

Trust Your Inner GPS

The first habit changing mantra I have chosen to put into practice is this one: trust your inner GPS. I love the layout of this book, Habit Changers. The first twelve pages of the book outlines how mantras can work, how the author realized their effectiveness, and how to put them into practice in your…

Love in Amish Country- Short but Sweet

An emotional tale that will keep you turning the page. The Angel of Forest Hill is a short, but sweet read that you could easily finish in a couple of hours. It’s also perfect for this time of year because it is primarily based at Christmas time. The characters are interesting and the author makes…

Why I gave up Nursing School

Tonight, I decided to take a little break from studying for my finals while I eat my dinner. I’m curled up on the couch with my favorite blanket and a bowl of chili, perfect for this cold rainy night. Earlier today while I was sorting through some notes I came across…
