Happy Birthday to the BEST Brother

johnny3 johnny7 johnny4 johnny5 johnny6 johnny2 johnnyToday is my brother John’s birthday. We have always been incredibly close and I don’t take that for granted. I know a lot of people who barely even talk to their siblings, I talk to Johnny about once a day. He’s one of my best friends. He is a really intelligent, very caring man and I can’t believe that he’s turning 25 years old today. I’m so blessed to be his sister. I love you, bucco, and I hope this birthday is one to remember. =)

Happy Father’s Day



You are my leader in Christ, my role model, my friend, my support system. You keep me laughing and make sure I never take myself too seriously! You are full of love for all people and animals. I am a very blessed daughter! We all love you terribly!! <3

Abbigayle’s Birthday

AbbiToday I am in Nevada celebrating the first birthday of my niece Abbigayle!! =) It was a last minute decision to make this trip, but OH SO WORTH IT. I can’t believe that I’m getting to spend this time with my brother Joel and his family. I’m so blessed!!

Relay for Life

Made in memory of my grandmother.

I had such an incredible time participating in Relay for Life! =) It was such a moving, thought-provoking, and happy event spent celebrating MORE BIRTHDAYS! I feel so proud of how much money our work team earned for the Relay. I would definitely suggest participating in a Relay for Life in your own towns. <3 Down with cancer!!

Book Reviews


booksWhat a dream it would be to be able to review books every day of the week!

It’s so odd to think this, let alone write this down for all the world [i.e., my 5 readers]. I did not truly know until a little while ago what I wanted to do with my life. When I was a young college graduate, I wanted to┬ábe an actress in a television sitcom. That was the dream.

Now my dream has shifted. Grown with my age and likes/dislikes, my love and happiness growing and shaping differently as my preferences evolve.

country daysI can think of nothing more lovely than reviewing books for all the days of my life. I may not be able to write extremely well. I may not be able to act extremely well. But I can read like a pro; read like it’s my job.

And so that’s me. That’s me now. At 26 years old. Working during the day as a technical writer, wishing I could write more often and read all day every day.

Happy Birthday, Broseph!

johnnyHappy 24th Birthday to my partner-in-crime, my best friend since childhood, and one of the men in my life who has meant the most to me! My brother Johnny is an incredible young man and I’m so proud of all of the hard work he’s been putting into school this year! He’s gotten SOC [Student-of-the-Course] twice now and he keeps getting better and better! I can’t wait to see what he accomplishes in his life!
