If you haven't guessed yet, my husband and I like to dress up for random geeky things. And the Renaissance Faire is definitely a reason to dress up 🙂 But when I discovered I didn't have a peasant blouse to complete my latest outfit, I figured I'd try to make one myself. And it was … Continue reading DIY: Peasant Blouse
5 out of 5 Stars! This book has been on my radar for a while, but I was hesitant to pick it up. A book about Nazi Germany? Not my favorite topic. When the movie came out several years ago, there was a whole lot of talk about it. I just discovered my library had … Continue reading Book Review: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I love Madison. I've mentioned it in previous posts, but it's always wonderful to go back and visit my Alma Mater. And the University of Wisconsin recently revamped an old parking lot into a new and amazingly bookish Alumni Park. So of course I had to take some pictures 🙂 Gotta love seeing our school … Continue reading Travel Update: Alumni Park, Madison Wisconsin
4 out of 5 Stars I noticed this book when it first came out--honestly, its hard not to notice that beautiful, splashy cover. But it's a pretty hefty book and I wasn't quite sure if I was up to it. During a conversation with a fellow coworker, he highly recommended the novel (and we have … Continue reading Book Review: Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King
Yikes, it's been a little while since my last writing update, but it's also been a particularly busy summer. Work, travel, house updates...it seems like there's not a whole lot of time for writing. On our recent trip to Madison, I was lucky enough to fit in some writing time at Michelangelo's Coffee House on … Continue reading Coffee in Madison (and mini writing update!)
5 out of 5 Stars! I've become a bit of a VE Schwab fanatic lately. I loved Vicious, and the Darker Shades of Magic Trilogy was spectacular. When I saw this one at a bookstore during our travels, I had to pick it up! The Blurb There’s no such thing as safe in a city … Continue reading Book Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
Just some more photos from our trip to Mackinac Island, MI 🙂 Happy Trails!
We had so much fun on our recent trip to Mackinac Island, MI--I just had to share some pictures from our trip 🙂 Happy Travels!
3out of 5 Stars 🙂 I've been reading a lot of hardcore sci fi and fantasy lately. So, I figured it was time to break things up with some contemporary. Although the grass is still green and fall hasn't yet arrived, this wintertime story seemed like it could be fun 🙂 The Blurb What does … Continue reading Book Review: Together at Midnight by Jennifer Castle
The summer is drawing to a close, but I feel like there's never enough of it. There's always one more book I could have read, one more chapter written, another art project started, or another mile to run. But all that being said, I feel like I made the most of our recent trip to … Continue reading Writing on Mackinac Island
