Escape to Winter

I have something to share with you. 

Six flights in one month- I needed to find a book series that would keep my interest.  And since I love Elin Hilderbrand books, I decided to escape the Texas heat with the Winter Series.


Four books that follow the Quinn family on all the ups and downs over years of good and bad.  Marriage, divorce, infidelity, abuse, war, love and loss – it’s all there.  A nice way to get your mind off of anything important for a short while!


My Day to Read at School

I have something to share with you.

The first day of school is almost here and the emails will start coming from the room parents.  My Favorite day of school is when I am signed up to read to my daughter’s class.  I try to choose books that allows me to interact with the class and ask questions to the other kids.  Add these two to your list for when the sign up sheet gets sent out to your class!

I have something to share with you.

It has been months since I posted.  I took a new job last year and it has taken me this long to get the balance back into my life. My reward:  a two-week vacation(one week away with my husband and one week at home with my daughter) and unplugging from the work devices (absolutely necessary).

So what did I get to do during these two weeks?  (Re)Discover my love of reading. Click the books below to check out some entertaining summer reading!


Mom’s Book Club

I have something to share with you.

5lovelanguagesI remember having a conversation with my dear friend Michelle about relationships and she shared with me a great book that had been recommended to her.  Recently I saw a clip on Facebook where two pastors referred to this book as a great read for those married or in a relationship….The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts.

I downloaded this to my Kindle back in 2012 and I remember recommending it to other friends once I finished it.  It educates you on what the author believes are the 5 primary love languages and how to identify what your partners language is and how to “speak” that language.

So what are they?

  • quality time
  • words of affirmation
  • gifts
  • acts of service
  • physical touch

So think about the five languages above and decide….what language do you “speak”, what language does your partner “speak” AND have you learned to “speak” their language and have they learned to “speak” yours?
