Books I’m Looking Forward to Reading

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern I loved Morgenstern’s first novel, The Night Circus, when my cousin gave it to me for Christmas when I was in high school. So when I saw on Goodreads that she had published another, The Starless Sea, the memories of how much I enjoyed The Night Circus came to

Grace Potter and the Comeback

I’ve been a fan of Grace Potter since high school, when someone in honors choir with me raved about her and her then-band, the Nocturnals. We covered one of her songs, “Tiny Light,” and I was in love. So, I was excited to learn that she had released a new album, Daylight, and that she

Winter Date Ideas

Photo by Mateusz Majewski on Unsplash Wintertime is in full swing. It’s finally truly cold in the D.C. area, and the weather doesn’t make me want to go outside without proper clothing. The thing is, I hate the process of putting on and taking off winter clothes: scarves, hats, gloves, coats, anything. It’s just inconvenient; I’d rather put

This list includes my top three favorite books that I read in 2019. I hope, if you choose to read them, that you enjoy them as much as I

The Bookshop of Yesterdays Review

I told you in my last few posts that I’d been reading, a lot. I beat my Goodreads reading challenge last year by a dozen books. I had set it low (twenty books), but I’m proud that I not only finished it, but surpassed it significantly. The first book I’ve completed in my 2020 Goodreads

Three Best Current TV Shows

I’ll admit – I’m not a huge streamer or TV-watcher. I’m more of a movie or book person, to be completely frank. Lately it’s been books. I haven’t been able to focus on books for years, so the rediscovered ability to do so has led me to more reading than watching in the past few

Amsterdam: Days 3-5

I’m stateside again, and I believe I owe you a description of my last three days in Amsterdam. Those last few days were delightful. Read on, reader! DAY THREE On Sunday, we went to the Happy Pig Pancake Shop for Dutch pancakes, which are quite similar to crepes in that they are large and very

Amsterdam: Days 1 and 2

Well, friends, it’s officially my last full day in Amsterdam. What a trip this has been! Again I have to thank the boyfriend greatly for making this possible in every way. I thought, since today we decided to spend most of the day camped out in a cafe, that I might tell you about the

Amsterdam Bucket List!

Well, friends, it’s real: I’m going to Amsterdam! It’s the place I’ve wanted to visit most for a long time now, closely followed by Paris and Greece. A great big giant thank you to the love of my life for the tickets! (He even made sure I’m flying direct!) I thought I would share my

Budget Bachelorette Bash Ideas

My sister is getting married. In fact, she will be married by August third. I am her maid of honor, which meant throwing the bachelorette party was solely my job. My sister is not the “stripper and/or clubbing” type, at all, so I had to think of something else. Here are some budget-friendly ideas that

Tampa

Well, my travels continued this Memorial Day weekend. On Sunday morning, I flew from DCA to Tampa, Florida, to meet the boyfriend. I arrived a little after noon, and he arrived soon after that. I had to wait in the hotel lobby for almost an hour, but I had a good book and some Starbucks,

Portland, Oregon: Also, 100th Post!

As stated in my April goals post, in the last week of April I flew to Portland, OR, to visit the boyfriend on his days off. It was his birthday present to me (my birthday is the 22nd.). It was a wonderful trip, though my second flight there was a less than ideal. Honestly I

It’s Spring – Get Outside!

As you may have noticed from my post on Monday, spring is here, and I’m very excited about it! My favorite thing about spring (besides the flowers, of course) is the lovely weather. The wonderful thing about spring is that all Tiggers’ bottoms are made out of them – no, wait. The wonderful thing about
