Welcome, friend! Relax & rest awhile, if you please. I'm an ordinary girl, a follower of Christ, mama to Gabriel, & wife to Evan. Here in this little space of the online world, I share all manner of bookish things, including full content reviews, writerly snippets, encouragement for everyday life, and a whole collection of names & their meanings.

welcome to my blog

Another dose of A + A!

  • "Whoa! He blew a smoke ring," you exclaim, as your family's van passes a car on the interstate. "Oh wait.  SHE blew a smoke ring," you correct yourself after a better look.
  • And oh, the painful truth:

  • The fact every time you see this GIF, you burst into laughter:
  • Dreaming that you were overrun by cats.
  • So engrossed in a book that you jump at the slightest sound. (RESISTANCE)
  • Holding your umbrella under your arm, but when you pull it free, you feel as if you are drawing a sword.

  • When your brand new camera comes in a few days earlier than you expect, and the big box is waiting for you when you return from work.  A perfect end to a good day.
  • When you nearly drop a snowglobe right in front of the customer, but catch it just in time.  That's AWESOME, because you don't have good reflexes. . .
  • Receiving your AUTOGRAPHED copy of ANON, SIR, ANON. Currently reading and loving it! Such hilarity.
  • And wit (coming off from the previous point):
            "Oh yes.  I'd almost forgotten about that in the fair presence of your niece."
            "Nonsense.  Live women are a dime-a-dozen.  You're here to tell me about the dead one."
Anon, Sir, Anon (p. 28)

There will be a review once I finish! :]
  • Cinderella is finally out! And now to wait two WHOLE weeks before we can see it, and Frozen Fever!!
  • (I'm running out of awesomes, though there is always an abundance--it's just the thing of whether or not I can remember them. . .) So, here's an awesome shirt! Definitely on the wishlist. :]
  • All the new films coming soon this year! (Sorry, no time for links) Besides Cinderella, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Minion movie! Star Wars, Hotel Transylvania 2 (Yes, I think it's HILARIOUS), Jurassic World, and so much more.  
Yes.  I'm a nerd.  :]

Happy weekend, all!

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
