I have never done a review to this magnitude before. I read a lot, but when it comes to romance books there are not a lot of authors that really grab me the moment I read the first chapter. Celia Aaron is one of those authors that really pull me in. The first book I read of hers was a little series called “Acquisitions”.
Cities in the United States are pretty standard. You always have a Main Street, or a Martin Luther King Jr Drive. In each city there is also something very unique and special. For instance San Francisco has their sourdough bread, Chicago their deep dish pizza, and New York, well they have just about anything. Last week I went to the magical wonder that is Seattle. Upon first sight the city is nestled around trees, mountains and water. The sound has water that is so blue you wonder if there is anything more blue. Unlike most port cities or coastal cities I have visited in the past, Seattle doesn’t smell like…
Imagine if you will for one moment a spot in the world that is not like anything you have ever seen in real life. Street vendors line the streets sharing foods they grew up on. The air is thick with pickling fragrances and grilling meats. Mixed in with a savory sweet smell that can only come from something made with sugar. I know you can find street foods practically anywhere, but that doesn’t mean they are any less special. Now, for another moment wonder where on earth this could be. Well, quite literally this could be anywhere in Europe. But in my mind right now, I am talking about Warsaw,…
What do you do for a girl who just finished a program that was both challenging and rewarding? Well, you take her on a road trip. Well, technically you would take her to Europe, but since that is a small fortune this time of year, you take her to another country more within her reach. And since she really wants to go to Vancouver, well then you take the girl to Canada.
When I first started blogging I did a lot of research on social media. Now, I am going to admit something really horrible right now, I bleeping HATE social media. Why? I don’t know. I find it hard to talk about myself or update my status of the day. I honestly think that no one really cares about what I am doing at whatever o’clock. I personally wouldn’t want to see a picture or status update of me telling you all that currently, at whatever time, I am picking my nose.
I love music, as you can tell from previous posts. This weekend while cleaning out some well grown dust from winter, I had Alexia play a playlist I had forgotten all about. This little play list had many of my favorites from the 90s! Sadly, this list will not have Linkin Park, I know I know, WHAT?! Since they are more of early 00’s they are not on this list. But hold tight, cause you will not be disappointing.
So, I am still trying to lose some baby weight…I know what? Anyway one of the things I am trying not to have is carbs. Or at least a lot of carbs. My husband is a serial snacker, so it makes it hard to join him or to make things for him that are not going to expand the waist line! After much searching on the internet and experimenting on my own I came up with this. I hope you enjoy! (Just in time for winter sports! or whatever….)
I love to read, and try to find as much time for reading as I can. For me, there is nothing better than bonding with a new character and watching how they grow throughout the story. I find it quite powerful when a really good story takes you by the hand. Another reason I always make time for reading is because, for me reading is almost therapeutic. Especially when life starts to throw wild darts in your direction. Think Indian Jones in the Temple of Doom! Regardless of your situation in life it is a wonderful thing to escape the world around you if only for a moment. A sentimental…
This time of year I bake like a grandma on speed. The baking starts in November and continues until January producing wonderful delights such as; cookies, a yule log and fudge. I love baking, even when it causes some stress! Here is the main reason why my husband and I make the things we do.
My grandmother used to sit in front of the television watching soap operas and knit. I knew when something exciting was happening when I heard the sound of her needles clanking rapidly together. She used to knit the cutest sweaters and blankets, all year round. Though she never showed anyone how to knit, I learned using the great powers of YOUTUBE. My first project was hats!
