Prayers for the Stolen - Book Review

Another really great book. I enjoyed Jennifer Clement's Prayers for the Stolen, one full of dismal conditions, heartache, growth, pain, loss, and redemption. The writing itself can keep you engaged, but you'll want to stick around in the story anyway. The absolute poverty of the area grips your heart and you gain a new understanding of struggle....more

A Birth Announcement fromTiny Prints

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a fun and relaxing weekend! We had to say goodbye to Kyle's mom yesterday which officially means we are on our own! We have been so fortunate to have both mine and Kyle's mom staying with us over the past few months to help me finish out my pregnancy and transition into life with two kids. Now, I apparently have to do my own laundry and cook my family meals...weird. ;) ...more

Wolverine Movie Review

Last night I had the opportunity to make it out to see Wolverine.  As a fan of the X-Men movies from the very beginning, I can honestly say that they have done a superb job with both Wolverine installments.  Although it is helpful to have seen previous movies before watching The Wolverine, I would say that the number one movie that you must watch before this one is X-Men Last Stand.  There any many Jean Grey references and if you have not yet seen this movie, you may feel at a loss as to why this is such a big deal for Logan.  The time period of this movie is after the X...more

February - The Month of Love

Many think of February as the month of love, mostly because Valentine's Day is there. Many people have traditions of using the entire month to demonstrate love, some only do up until Valentine's, others (like us) treat it like a normal month.Other than that though, February is about love for us, since Hun and I's anniversary is at the beginning of the month....more

Getting School-ed In Liberty Village

My friend Monnie has been a big fan of School in Liberty Village for many years. Unfortunately, the last few times I've attempted to eat here class has been full (ha-ha). But what's true in school is true in brunch: the early bird gets the worm, or in this case the mouthwatering stack of pancakes....more

Dangerous voices, Rae Carson

In the midst of all insanity I love taking time to immerse myself into the fictional world of stories. I love books, and I love reading. There is nothing in this world that gives me more peace, and joy than a good story does, especial when I can feel the paper of the book, when I can look at it's cover, smell the fresh printed sheets, and feel the weight in my hands....more

The Presence of Absence - Book Review

The Presence of Absence is a very philosophical book, filled with many references to other religious philosophers, seekers for a God experience, for the speakings and healing from God.Doris Grumbach's first experience, the one which began her journey to seek and more fully understand God, happened in her early days of motherhood. ...more

2014 Favorite Posts

This last year has certainly been a rough one for us in different ways. It's also been a very good year in other ways. Aren't all years pretty much like that? Well in my world, that's usually the case - some good, some not so good, maybe some bad, but usually good to have had either way.We started off the year unsure what exactly would be happening for us. A few short weeks later, my dad went in the ICU. Baby Boy and I left Hun at home and went down to care for him for a few months....more

Gonzo for Ganzi

We found out after the epic Tdot Culinary Mixtape that our new friend Chef Friday cooks brunch on Sundays at Ganzi, an Italian restaurant just north of Wellesley and Church Street....more
