Favorite Books of October

I’ve been a member of Goodreads for the past two and a half years. Last year, I set the goal of reading 50 books, but missed that mark by nine books. For this year, I set the same goal and right on track with only seven more books. During October, I managed to read seven…


Sometimes Painting Needs a Twist

Over the summer, I experienced the fun that is Painting with a Twist with my mom, cousins, aunt, and grandma. I highly recommend it, because the combination of wine and alcohol is just about perfect. The cost is $35 for a 2 hour session, and $45 for a 3 hour class. All art supplies are…

Defying death on the high wire – Nik Wallenda in Atlantic City

The circus has always been one of my favorite attractions. But, it wasn’t the animals or the clowns (I’ve never been a fan) that I enjoyed the most. It was the trapeze artists and tight rope walkers that amazed me and captured my attention, as they demonstrated wonderful and death-defying stunts. Even now, during the…
