2019 in Review

2020 Reading Goals

2020 Reading Goals  Last year my reading goal was simply to read 100 books.  I met that goal, but I feel like it led me to focus more on hurrying through books rather than sinking into them.  This year I have a few goals, but none of them are overall quantity. #1) I would like...

The Adults

The Adults by Caroline Hulse I expected this book to be another light & fluffy holiday read.  And while it wasn’t a deep psychological thriller, it did have me flipping pages wondering what the heck happened!  It also had my heart breaking for what some of the characters were going through.

I was very curious about it, because I didn’t know John Grisham wrote this type of book.  Then, just a few pages in I was floored...this is Christmas with the Kranks!... Continue Reading →

Gingerbread Martini

This is a perfect holiday drink.  It's sweet, creamy & spicy and practically screams Christmas!  Yes, it's that festive. Compared to a true martini, it’s on the light side (only 1/3 of the mixture is alcoholic).  But it's so tasty you will probably drink more than one, so be careful!  🙂 Gingerbread Martini 1 part...
