    God Gave Me Butterfly Wings-A Review

    Ok. I know I said I don’t normally write book reviews. But, when you know people who write awesome books, you can’t help but want to share your excitement with the world. And, I am again excited about a book. This time it’s Taylor Eaton’s flash fiction compilation God Gave Me Butterfly Wings. Taylor was one of my first blog friends and shortly after “meeting” her, she published her first flash fiction book The Suicide of the Moon. I devoured that book. It was fantastic. Full of all the magic and wonder that the moon itself possesses. I signed up for her newsletter so I would continue to receive new…

    A Thank You, a Shout Out, and a Request

    Oh my gosh! I can honestly say that when I woke up this morning I had no idea of all the good things that awaited me.

First and foremost, she started a newsletter for those of us who follow her blog, her Little Liars as she has begun calling us. Love the nickname-reminds me of Pretty Little Liars, which I actually don’t watch but know about-makes me want to call you guys Lunatics, though-or better yet, mes les déments, my demented ones (ooh I like that, she says as she giggles hysterically-sorry, late night,…

    Remind Me Not To Mock the Universe

    I can’t believe it’s finally Friday.  You know what that means? As Jim Carrey says in The Mask: “It’s party time!” I am so ready for this weekend. I’m ready to be able to sleep in tomorrow. I’m ready for the rest and a little bit of fun. I’m not ready for all the kids to be home because it won’t be quiet or peaceful in the least, but it will be good to have more help containing the 2 yr old tornado (who will be turning 3 in three weeks). This weekend will be the first weekend in a while that I’ve had nothing scheduled, nothing going on. I…
