About Me

My photo
I am a Christian. I am a loving wife to my Army-National-Guard-Recruiter-Husband of 15 years. I am a stay-at-home-mother to our four handsome sons. I am a photographer. My blog is about as erratic, eclectic and random as I am, painted with rainbows of photos and words that are hills and valleys you travel; so lovely sometimes that they hurt you. These are the stories of how far we've come in the last 15 years as Christians, as a family and as individuals.

My Summer Reading List

Preview this book.
While flipping through late-night television I saw a portion of the review of the (at the time) upcoming release of the motion picture based off of this bestseller and learned that the ending of the movie was "completely different" from the book but muted the volume before I could hear any further. That's all it took for me to run out and pick up a copy of the book and vow to read it prior to seeing the movie. -The book was a compelling story that I thouroughly enjoyed, I have yet to see the film.

A couple of years ago (possibly last Summer; I'm not sure) I randomly chose Wicked Lovely from a bookstore rack and took it home to read. I enjoyed the fantasy of the story so when I saw the sequel to it on the shelf at Target while vacationing (since I was finished with the book I brought) I picked it up to complete the fable. Read the review.
Preview this book.
I am a pretty firm believer in the general rule that "the book is better than the movie" so after seeing the previews for the new flick I decided this would be my next read. I'm currently persuing it and delighting in the way that it was written.
If you know of a book you think I'd enjoy, please share... I just may read it!

I have a reading list (books I "want" to read), I'm putting Time Traveler's Wife on it.

Hey! Have you read 'The Memory Keeper's Daughter'? I read that last year and I thought it was pretty good.

I've been thinking about some of my favorite reads.
Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas by James Paterson (if you haven't read it - it is a must read)
Anything by Nicholas Sparks (several of his have become movies - Message in a Bottle, A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, Nights in Rodanthe)
