NEW YEAR, NEW BOOKS

Happy New Year y’all! I have made my “To Be Read List” for 2019, including the book I’m currently reading: Smart Women by Judy Blume. I’m planning to keep them next to my nightstand so that hopefully I can stay focused. I hope to finish these sixteen books well before the end of the year,Continue reading “NEW YEAR, NEW BOOKS”

Candy Cane Christmas

Christmas was Denise’s favorite holiday. That’s not unusual since it’s almost everyone’s favorite holiday, but her story was unusual. It was the Christmas season when her parents adopted her twenty years ago on December 21st, 1998. The anniversary of that with Christmas following soon after was always the best part of her year. In theContinue reading “Candy Cane Christmas”

Be a Friend of the Library!

Happy Saturday y’all! I am so excited, because yesterday I joined Friends of the Library here in Charleston. I have been wanting to for a while, but I finally did it yesterday at one of their book sales they hold each year at a local library. It was just $20 to join, and it goesContinue reading “Be a Friend of the Library!”

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO ME!

Until today, I had no idea about this, but today is apparently my five-year anniversary creating a blog with WordPress. So much has happened to me in five years, but the one thing that remains a constant is my love of writing. I created this blog one month before I graduated college. So, in theContinue reading “HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO ME!”

A Halloween Well Spent

Halloween is my favorite holiday of all, and I have been preparing all month for it. From the treats and movies to the pumpkin patches and ghost tours, and carving pumpkins I have been trying to soak in all that this spooky month has to offer. I have my traditions that I do every Halloween,Continue reading “A Halloween Well Spent”

A Monday Two Octobers Ago

I write a lot of stories involving scary things on here, and especially since it is October people are watching and reading scary stories. Two Octobers ago though, I met the subject of many nightmares I’d have for the two years since then. In October of 2016, a man followed me into an elevator at my lawContinue reading “A Monday Two Octobers Ago”

Finally October

I live in the South where the first day of October does not mean cold weather and beautiful rust and yellow leaves falling. It is normally not chilly even at night. If I were to cuddle in a blanket on my porch right now, I would be sweating and uncomfortable. But October is still myContinue reading “Finally October”

BOOK LOVERS DAY!

Happy Book Lovers Day! If you follow my blog, I assume you love books and reading as much as I do. It has always been a huge part of my life, and I would not be the same person I am if it had not been for many different novels growing up. I figured IContinue reading “BOOK LOVERS DAY!”

Happy Birthday Harry Potter!

Today is Harry Potter’s 38th birthday, so I felt like a post was necessary! As a kid I was not interested in reading Harry Potter. I remember checking it out of the library, and then never finishing the first book. I saw the movies right when they came out, and I still watch all ofContinue reading “Happy Birthday Harry Potter!”
