    Musings: Hello, Sunshine!

    I joined a REAL book club. Unlike when Mel and I tried to have a book club. I mean a two-person book club was really us enjoying a sushi dinner and talking about the book for five minutes, then just a hangout sesh. While it was a great time, I am excited to really try the whole ‘book club’ thing out. I’ve always wanted to be in one. My new-ish co-worker, JJ, invited me to her book club — kinda out of the blue. I don’t even know if she knows how much I enjoy reading. Anywho, despite my go-go personality and loving all the things, a book club leaves…

To change it up this year, I decided to gift something else. I’m sure I’m not the first person to do this, so I’m NOT claiming rights to my crafty idea, but I thought I’d share what I am giving to the Lovebugs this year. I decided that books were a great gift for the kidlets. Yes, they’d love candy way more than that.

    Letting My [Organizing] Freak Flag Fly

    I don’t need to do one of those silly FB survey’s to know……to know that my obsession with organization is at a freakish level. I literally get all giddy at the thought of an organized (insert anything really)! I am a freak. I know, I get it. I enjoy organizing, labeling, and putting away junk stuff. If I could make a profession out of organizing people’s lives, I’d do it. Okay, not finances…I have to draw the line somewhere. I know there are some people out there who ‘organize’ for a living and make decent money, but those people (my fellow freaks) are few and far between. A perfectly organized…

    10 Day YOU Challenge – 4 Books

    I love to get lost in fiction… In case you missed My 10 Secrets , My 9 Loves , My 8 Fears , My 7 Wants ,  My 6 Places  , and My 5 Foods take a peek! This “challenge” comes from Kristen’s at Glitter and Dust. I absolutely love to get lost in a good book, anywhere. From my bed, to the couch, to a coffee shop, or my most favorite, the beach – a good book can calm any storm. I love getting lost in the words that the author was strung together to evoke emotion and thought from me. Everyone reads and interprets a story different and each…
