Love Boldly

I finished reading Me Before You by JoJo Moyes. It’s not the first time I’ve read it and I can’t say the ending can be comfortably categorized as a happy one, but I love the dynamic between Lou and Will, two people of opposite personalities and walks of life who somehow overcome their differences to […]

Movie Night: Dolphin Reef and Onward

Yesterday was deemed a lazy day. But in reality, isn’t everyday a lazy day these days? I mean, you stay at home all day, every day. If you have an office job that deems you have work to do at home on a computer, then you do that. But other than that, you spend time […]

Saying Yes to the Dress is Hard.

Yesterday afternoon, I went to David’s Bridal to look at wedding dresses. This is only the second time that I went out to look at dresses there in person. My mom went with me. I tried on at least a dozen dresses or more. I even tried on a dress that reminded me of Meghan […]

A New Year’s Ramble.

I decided to set my Goodreads reading list at 30 this year. I was going to start at 50 but that seemed a little overreaching considering my reading pace last year and in previous years. So considered putting it at 20, as some of my friends put their reading goals at 20, but that seemed […]

A new year ahead.

Day 1 of 2020. January 1, 2020. I never made a big day out of it before, but now it seems really special to me. The first day of a new year. One year of our anniversary. I can’t believe we’ve been together for a whole year now. I feel like we just started. Every […]

Survival Stories.

I’m currently reading The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin. It was made into a movie not too long ago with Idris Elba and Kate Winslet. I haven’t seen the movie yet, so I don’t know how it compares, but so far I find the book to be interesting. Frankly, it’s an adult version of […]

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens (Review)

It’s rare that I read a current book while it’s still popular. If it’s at the library, then there’s a long waiting list and by the time I receive it, the majority of the population has already read it and no longer need to read it. If it’s not at the library, then it takes […]
