Book Club Pick: Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

Book Club Pick: Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

Book clubbers, be sure Big Little Lies is on your list of upcoming reads. Last week I borrowed this tremendously readable, deeply engrossing novel on my Kindle from the Flower Memorial Library. Though I’ve been a very bad reader the past year or so (unable to focus, unable to find time to really engage with the books I’veContinue Reading

I was 20). Unfortunately, it was during a lake effect snow storm in northernContinue Reading

Diva <3’s Snow

Diva <3’s Snow

The first thing Diva did when she got home on the bus yesterday was ask to stay outside. Despite the drizzle, her hunger pangs (she is always ravenous after a full day of school), and her exhaustion (her school bus comes at 7:20 a.m. every.single.day.) all she wanted to do was play in the snow.Continue Reading
