A Visit to Andrew Jackson’s Home – The Hermitage

Last week, I wrote about my love of RV venturing our way to book stores around the country. (Specifically, I wrote about Parnassus Books in Nashville, TN.) But my nerdiness does not end there. Not by a long shot! I also love touring homes of authors and past presidents, and while this may make me [...]

#RoadReads – Our Visit to Parnassus Books (Nashville, TN)

We all have destinations on our bucket list that seem so close yet so far away, don’t we? For many RV’ers, those must-sees include national parks, mountains, beaches, deserts. And while I want all that too, I also have a lot of bookstores on my must-see list.  Top among those bookstores has long been Parnassus [...]

Happy First Day of Fall! – The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

For some, including me, fall (or autumn, if you like) is the most wonderful time of the year. Today is September 23, and I just had to pop on here to officially welcome the season and say HAPPY FALL to you! ????  The cooler, but not cold, temperatures. The change in the trees. Pumpkins. Caramel apples. [...]

#RoadRoads – Kicking Off with an Epic Re-Read

Is there any larger literary phenomena than the Harry Potter series? If there is, I honestly don’t know what it’d be.  Sure, there’s Shakespeare. But I don’t see a lot of folks knocking down that door. And of course, God had a huge hit with The Bible.  Twilight. The Hunger Games. Lord of the Rings. [...]

RV Rallies – Something in Common

My favorite thing to talk with others about is books. It is always interesting to hear what people are currently reading. If they like it or not. What their favorite books are. Who their favorite writers are. I could talk and listen for hours.  Turns out, my second favorite thing to talk with others about is [...]

Upgrades to the Camper Van

Our 2017 Winnebago Era 70A 4x4 camper van is a gorgeous 24-foot tiny home on wheels, and I love her. But she came with less than beautiful wheels and tires, which continued to look less and less beautiful with each passing day. So, at just over the 2-year/36,000 mile mark, we were more than ready [...]

Moms, Books, & Summer

It is July 6. Two days post-independence.  I’m sitting in a hotel room, contemplating yesterday, the day ahead, and bits and pieces of life over the last 46 years. That’s a lot.  I’m thinking about my step-daughters and wondering how they are doing. I’m thinking about my nieces - and again - wondering how they [...]
