BOOK REVIEW: The Two of Us by Victoria Bylin

Have you ever read a book you really liked but somehow just didn’t bond to?  I mean the book is so well written with amazingly complex characters and a plot that keeps you engaged.  A book that you couldn’t put down it was just that good.  But you don’t bond with it.  Perhaps I’m just romanced out.  Time to switch up the genres again or something.  This book was amazingly well written.  Even the secondary characters had depth and complexity.  There were multiple lines of plot and love stories and couples and it all worked and danced together so brilliantly.  But I just didn’t bond with it all. This story is about so much more than just Mia and Jake.  It really starts with Lucy and Sam.  Lucy is Mia’s baby sister that she raised through the hard years, who is happiness and light and spontaneity with directly juxtaposes Mia’s […]

Every day this month I’ll post a Gratefulness or Gratitude prompt. I’d really enjoy hearing your input on this prompt as well in the comments below. Today’s prompt:I’m somehow drawn to challenges. Song challenges, writing challenges, Sims challenges, just about any challenge. While tossing around blog ideas with my partner in crime the idea to do a monthly challenge came up. I was hesitant to move this to the blog but then tossed it up and said ‘why not?’. Here you have it, my first 30 Day Challenge. Every day this month I’ll post a Gratefulness or Gratitude prompt.

BOOK REVIEW: A Place At Our Table by Amy Clipston

BOOK REVIEW: A Place At Our Table by Amy Clipston

Posted November 14, 2017 by Fizzy Pop in Amish Homestead, Amy Clipston / 0 Comments

A young Amish volunteer firefighter who lives and breathes his family dairy farm and the fire station.  A young Amish woman who works in her family’s restaurant and lives and breaths her family life.  Two broken families touched by grief.  And two young people who find themselves falling in love with grief and baggage and an obnoxiously annoying inability to actually communicate with each other in a way that makes sense and helps them move forward through all that is life instead of moving them backward.  I loved them, I cheered for them, I virtually smacked them and at times I simply despised them.  They were both completely selfish and drowning in self-pity that manifested in different ways.  They both had, and still have, a lot of growing up to do.  Despite the conflicting emotions I’m still completing rooting for them. ‘A Place at Our Table’ tells the story of […]

Today’s prompt: There’s an obvious answer here and a couple of can’t live without them answers here as well.  I could say computer, it’s overly obvious.  A way to easily save and share and back up […]
