Sewing with your left hand should be more fun…


Hey guys!

Have you missed me?

I spent nine days at home for a staycation this year over the holiday and loved every minute! I got to spend all day, every day with my daughter.

It gave me a glimpse of what it would be like to be a stay at home mom. It was bittersweet. It taught me a great deal and gave me even more respect for all stay at home moms.

Being a working mom I feel that more often than not I see my co-workers more than I see my family. But at the same time I feel that I’m teaching Eme early that nothing is without sacrifice.  Continue reading “Sewing with your left hand should be more fun…”

Unpopular Culture…The Interview


14716321_1795993097326627_8850438171436342810_n

Hello friends! I’m so very excited to bring to you my interview with the hosts of Unpopular Culture, a podcast that opens your mind to the world around you. Michael Drane and Corey Stewart are two very profound people and I cannot thank them enough for agreeing to be interviewed.

I’ll tell you, I’m a HUGE fangirl of both of them. I’ve listened to every show and have the honor of interacting with them on Facebook, as well. In fact, I love their show and their message so much that I became a cult-follower and donate money to the show each month in the hopes that it helps them reach a broader audience. They don’t preach or insist; they present you with information – which may be new to you – then discuss it.

The subject matter varies from show to show, but you always learn something new. I personally think that’s one of the most important things in life, learning.

I planned to make this a two part post, but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense to combine it and to let you all embrace all that is Unpopular Culture. These two people, along with Justin and Ryan (special co-hosts) have created a space in the podcasting world that is unlike anything I have listened to thus far.

Without any more babble from me…I’m excited to introduce you to Michael Drane and Corey Stewart!!!! Continue reading “Unpopular Culture…The Interview”

Guest Takeover! Marie Benedict, Author of The Other Einstein


“What draws her to historical fiction and what the research process was like for her?”

9781492637257-pr

            When I was young, I was lucky enough to have a wonderful aunt — who was an English professor, poet, and a forward-thinking nun — who provided me with a constant stream of intriguing literature. One birthday, she gave me the present of a book that challenged my perspective on the world. That book was Marion Zimmer Bradley’s The Mists of Avalon, a thought-provoking re-telling of the Arthurian legend from the perspective of the women in Arthur’s life, Guinevere and Morgan LeFay. This book made me wonder at the other untold stories that exist in legend and history, and set me on the path toward excavating women’s narratives from the past. Continue reading “Guest Takeover!

Meet Amita Trasi, The Amazing Author of The Color of Our Sky


I’m so very please to present this Q & A to you our an exceptional author. I was lucky enough to be able to request Amita Trasi’s book on NetGalley and even more lucky to be approved by the publishers to read and review her very first book. Shortly after the review Amita reached out to me because I had expressed interest in getting to know the author more and hopefully being able to have a guest post or interview with her. The story of The Color of Our Sky and the emotion that Amita brings to you with her words is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I hope you all get as much joy out of the interview that I did and continue to have each time I read it.
