Part 1: I think I can spin, why wouldn’t I be able to…

I sit with my laptop on my lap, coffee fresh from the pot, Pandora playing my David Bowie channel over my tablet, while I look at my phone and find myself thinking of a time before technology.  A time where … Continue reading

Obsessed with time-travel, sexy Scottish men, history, and medicine? Me too!!!

Obsessed with time-travel, sexy Scottish men, history, and medicine? Me too!!! If you have not yet discovered the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon, you MUST check it out. While I believe it does fall under the genre of Romance, please don’t let that be a deciding factor. First, let’s be honest we all like a little “romance”, it’s just a little taboo to admit it. Second, it is an amazing book, that you will not be sorry you read. There are currently eight books in this amazing series. The latest was just released on June 10th, and I haven’t had the opportunity to read it yet. I decided to go back and reread the 7th book first in order to familiarize myself with where I left off. Read it again you say? This series is so amazing I have read it from beginning to end 3 times already! I definitely encourage you to pick it up and check it out. Since I accidentally made the mistake of reading two of them out of order, and have made numerous phone calls to my mom asking which book is next, I am going to make your life easier and just list them chronologically for you.


1.  Outlander


2.  Dragonfly in Amber


3.  Voyager


4.  Drums of Autumn


5.  The Fiery Cross


6.  A Breath of Snow and Ashes


7.  An Echo in the Bone


8.  Written in My Own Heart’s Blood

The first book starts a little slow, so please read all the way through Chapter 3!  After that you will be hooked!

New Beginnings

Schools out for summer and I am so excited to finally get to my laundry list of things that got put on hold during the school year. Crafting is number one on my list of much missed activities! My baby brother is having his first kid, and I have a million things I want to knit for my future nibling. Next up are some home improvements! I’m more than a little embarrassed to admit that the fabulous new curtains we found for our bedroom have been hanging up unhemmed for well over a month now. While the old ones, which I plan to turn into throw pillows are folded up and cluttering my husband’s office. We also had a recent addition to our family!


This adorable little boy, Bronson.  We have lots of training, snuggles and fun in our future. Traveling, reading, baking, the sky is the limit for me this summer. Freedom feels good, let the journey begin.
