Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!! I am thankful for the Love Laughter and Happiness in my life. Today of all days this is very apparent. I look forward to spending a relaxing day eating wonderful food with my amazing family and sharing some great laughs. Enjoy this blessed holiday and if you are going shopping tonight, please be safe!


My Favorite Halloween Movies

Anybody else spending the weekend reading Halloween books and getting super excited for the holiday? I do not like scary movies so these are my favorite Halloween movies:

Halloween Town I and II (children’s movie I know but I still love them)

Hocus Pocus

Wizard of Oz (not exactly a Halloween movie I know but close enough)

Hotel Transylvania I and II

What are your favorites?


Book Smeller

I am officially a book smeller (apparently that is not a word but I like it so I am going to leave it). My mother in law caught me smelling one of my new books one day and asked me what I was doing. She is an avid reader and she had never even heard of anybody doing that. I couldn’t believe it! The first time I heard of this was watching Gilmore Girls and I have been hooked ever since. It doesn’t matter to me if it’s a new book or an old classic (as long as it’s not dusty!), I will smell them all!

What do you think? Do you smell your books too?

Fall Traditions

My favorite things about fall are hot apple cider, turning leaves, cool crisp air, and the wonderful decorations. I love the wonderful smell and calming flavor of the hot apple cider mixed with the cool crisp air. Add in the turning leaves and decorations and I am just about in heaven. My favorite decoration is my scarecrow Charlie. I got him at a craft fair when I was young and my entire family always knows who I’m talking about when I mention Charlie. Nothing beats sitting outside on a cool autumn day with a good book and a steaming cup of apple cider.

What are some of your traditions?
