“In quoting others, we cite ourselves.”

– Julio Cortazar

I created this website as a sort of tribute to the written word. My intention is to fill this space with quotes, book reviews, short stories, and general musings from the life of a thirty-something year old woman.

The ‘general musings’ can be found in in the blog section. I write about my life, my job, and anything I find interesting enough to share. I also include quotes that I feel pertain to these situations.

I spend a lot of my time reading. If you like books, too be sure to check out the reviews section where I share my thoughts on the books I’ve read and occasionally the podcasts I’ve listened to and the movies I’ve watched.

In addition to my love for reading and watching fiction, I occasionally try to write it. I’ve created a short stories section for you to read those fiction stories. I’d love it if you’d take the time to read them and let me know what you think.

Furthermore, there are certain tools and services I love and recommend to my friends and followers. Those recommendations can be found in the resources tab.

Some of these posts contain links that will take you to a new page where you can learn more about or purchase an item that I am talking about. If you decide to purchase something through these links, I receive a little incentive at no extra cost to you. These incentives allow me to keep working on this website and I truly appreciate it anytime someone helps me out in this way.
