Hello There!

Nice to meet you! I’m a writer, photographer, business consultant, and yogi currently living in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with my husband, dog, and cat. I’ve recently received my MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and hold a B.A. in Economics from Drew University. I’m also a registered yoga teacher (RYT-500) and former certified personal trainer (ACE). I love to read, am a bit of a television junkie, and occasionally I knit.

My goal with this blog is to chronicle anything and everything interesting in my life – things I find, experiences I have, and stuff I’ve learned along the way. I took a break for several years because keeping up here felt more like work than fun, but I’m back to it with a much more relaxed attitude, and no schedule for when I’ll post, though I’m hoping to make at least two updates each month.

Book Recommendations

For a little while I thought that I might want to blog about books, so I started posting book reviews. What I’ve learned is that I don’t really write reviews, I write recommendations. When I read a book that I love, I want to tell the world about it and can’t wait to write up a blog post about how great the book is. When I read a book I don’t love, I might rage about it in my journal, but I have no desire to go back over what I’ve written, edit it and post it for the world. I want to move on to something I will enjoy.

So any books you see on this site are recommendations. If I receive an ARC, please know that if I like it I absolutely WILL blog about it. If I don’t like it, I won’t be mentioning it here.


The FCC Wants You to Know

Any product reviewed here was purchased for my own enjoyment, unless otherwise specified, and all the opinions are my own, unless otherwise specified. This isn’t a review site, so if I don’t like something, I probably won’t talk about it here. I definitely won’t say I like something just because I got it for free.
