Blog Tour & Review: Time by Penny Reid

After what felt like the longest month ever, I was ecstatic when Time, the third book in Penny Reid’s Laws of Physics series, was released.

October Blooper Reel Round Up

October is referred to as “Annual Sleep Deprivation Month” in our house. Why? Post-Season baseball. We also try to go camping a lot since October’s great weather makes it prime time for Shenandoah. I love October. October is pumpkin spice lattes, and scarves, and fall colors, and boots. More importantly, life and October is not…

REI Outessa: Waterville Valley 2017

Last year was a big year for me. I learned to embrace that one does not have to be a certain number on the scale in order to do everything they dream. I cemented this belief system by going to REI Outessa Summit in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire in September. What I thought would be…

Taking Pause

This year, we planned well ahead so visits were finalized at the beginning of November and I opted for jeans and indulging in less this…

Chasing Sunrise: Week Two

The key to Damn Early Days is getting a solid bedtime ritual in place and not letting yourself party too hard on the weekends. On the Saturday before week two began, we celebrated my grandmother’s 80th birthday. We do not do anything small so naturally, there was a big party. Almost everyone came in from out…

Chasing Sunrise: Week One

When committing to wake up damn early for twenty-one days, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect or even if I would make it through the first week. I signed up because Chasing Sunrise is something I have wanted to participate in for most of this year and, with this session being in November, I…
