The Unread Shelf Project of 2018

  I am the guiltiest person when it comes to buying an endless array of books only to leave a majority of them unread.  This is for two reasons.  First, I sincerely dislike “searching for my next read.”  I want to have a massive choice every time I finish a book.  Second, I love buying […]

Sincerest apologies for the major gaps in my blog updates… We rented a car for two weeks and nearly every single day have jetted off somewhere in England within a three hour drive to explore as many places as possible.  Last I left us off in Dover, but we have been all over the map […]

Walking Along The White Cliffs of Dover

Greetings from across the pond!   We landed safely and soundly at Heathrow, made our way quickly to our rental car and sped off toward Dover. For as long as I have wanted to take a road trip around England, I have dreamt of setting eyes upon the white cliffs of Dover.  Severely exhausted from […]

Read To Travel Update: Where Have I Been For The Last 3 Months & What’s Next?
