What I’ve been reading {January 2017}

It’s no secret that I love to read!  And I’m pretty sure that I say this every time I write a book post, but I love to read posts about books.  My main reason for this is to find more books to read!  So I share…

A peek into our week #1

Well, I did again.  I showed up.  I disappeared.  (This makes me want to sing “Oops, I did It Again”.  There’s a song fitting for every occasion, don’t you think? )  Anyway, I’ve let the blog sort of slide away, again…again…

My Words for the New Year

I am a goal setter.  A list maker.  A to-do list crosser offer. Do I finish everything on my list or do I achieve all of my goals? Not really. But for some reason, a list of goals and things to strive for give me focus.  I’m…

Happy New Year! {And where I’ve been for six months}

Woah!  Has it really been six months since (or longer) since I’ve written here on the blog?  Why, yes – yes, it has.  There are a few reasons for the silence these past few months.  So many times I’ve wanted to sit here and dig into…

What I’ve been reading {April and May}

  The past two months I did something I’ve never really done before.  I walked away from books that I had started.  And not just one or two, but four books!  I’ve always tried to trudge through reading books I’ve started, even if I…

Life lately {May 2016}

Hello y’all!  It’s been a while, hasn’t it?  Life has been crazy for the most part, and I had to back away from a few things, blogging being one of those things, until the dust settled for us.  So here’s the quick…

How I’m learning how to quilt

When our oldest son was born, my Grandma gave him the cutest baby quilt that had little farmer men on it.  She had given me one when I was born too.  It had those Holly Hobbie looking boys and girls on it because they didn’t know what my…

What I’ve been reading {February and March}

If you ask what the thing I enjoy most doing when I have a little extra time on my hands, I’m probably going to say reading.  I love to read.  I love the library. I love bookstores.  I love books.  Amen. I’m always on the search…
