Book Review – Faithful Place

How cool is this? I’ve written my first book review. It’s through BlogHer and for the fiction novel “Faithful Place” by Tana French. I’ve heard many fabulous reviews about the author Tana French, and am now motivated to read her other novels. My attraction to this book was it’s description on being murder/mystery/crime/drama (I kinda […] Read more…

How Time Flies

WOW! I was looking over my site – looking for items that need updating. I’ve been trying not to spend a lot of time on continually re-designing my site, but as I was checking out the “My Crew” image to the left, I realized, some updating is necessary.

BlogHer 2011 – Thoughts #1

My first BlogHer. WOW! I still feel like I’m processing all I learned, heard, saw, felt, and experienced. I have a feeling I will write quite a few posts sharing all my thoughts as I sort it all out. (Hence the #1 in the title above). This one is just an expression of how I […] Read more…

Warning: this is not a healthy food post! Yes, the cookies are vegan, but no, they are not a “whole food” without added sugar! I tried so very hard to make them be, but my magic was unsuccessful. They are, however, super yummy, and, I fear, by the time this post is up on my […] Read more…
