I have been writing a lot more at work and I'm loving it. 
I feel like my writing skills are improving day by day. 

It's definitely something that will help me with my career progression in human resources and as a blogger. 
It's also another way for me to express my creativity. 

Honestly, it's a win-win all around.

Once We Were Brothers

Wednesday, August 28, 2013


When I was younger my mom was enamored with the Civil War. I distinctly remember taking road trips throughout the southern United States to visit famous battle scenes and points of interest. 

My fascination with World War II perfectly mimics my mom's interest in the Civil War. 

I just cannot get enough. 

For that reason, I continue to read books about that time period. Soon people can use my blog as a referral site for great World War II novels. 

On that note, Once we Were Brothers is a beautiful story about two boys torn apart by Nazi Europe. Also highlighted, is the love story between Ben and Hannah. Most of this book takes place through flashbacks as Ben recounts his tale to Cat and Liam (can't tell you who they are or else I'll give away parts of the story)! 

Several moments in this novel brought me to tears. 

Like my mom, I'd love to take a trip someday to various places in Europe that I've read about. Because of this book, Poland is definitely on my list. 

For those of you as interested in this time period as me, or for those just looking for a good book, this is another definite must read. 

Next on the list, The Good German (I'm sorry, it appears I can never be satiated).

Life According to Me

Monday, August 26, 2013


These boys mean everything to me. 

While some may think it's a bit obsessive (mom) I just can't help myself. 

In November I'm taking a trip to my favorite place (Disney World) with two of my favorite boys. 
I am so excited to be there with them and my family. 

Lots of kisses, lots of hugs and lots of laughs are in my future. 
(And some Mickey Mouse too).
