“When you feel angry at your spouse, ask yourself, ‘What do I want from my spouse right now?’ and then try to turn your anger into a request. I have found that when one person is angry at his spouse over something, that anger is often a secondary emotion.”

“Anna looked out the window. The thatched roofs were wrong, the man hitched to the plow was wrong. She was pretty sure this was Ireland, given the accents and the landscape, and that was very wrong. And it wasn’t now, not Anna’s now.”

“All he knew was that when he walked into Brenda’s kitchen, I was alive, well, and buckled into a pair of black-and-white denim overalls like a train engineer, the sorrowful dog curled loyally by my side in a corner, Amelia crouched next to me, watching with savage interest as I wielded a pink plastic doll leg. My father glanced around, but there was no evidence of the rest of the figure.”

“There must have been two hundred raptors, flashing bright colors against an orange and pink sky, high up where only the luckiest of arrows could reach them. Their screeches made her cold. Her hand flew to the edges of her headscarf to check for stray hairs, for she knew that if the raptors discovered what she was, they’d cease even to notice the human army”

— Fire, Kristin Cashore pg. 77

* NOTE: Fire is a “companion” novel to Graceling. While the publishers say you can read and enjoy Fire without having read Graceling, and I agree, if you do want to read both, read Graceling first! Events in Fire will spoil Graceling! *

“Now nobody has ever before asked me to choose anything I’ve ever owned. Every autumn a group of nice white people come to our church with boxes of clothes and shoes they spread out over all the benches. But that’s not the same. Sometimes there’s nothing there that fits me and I have to wait until spring when they come back again.”

“Ir’s riskier to stay. I paid for my room. That’s all the innkeeper really cares about, not whether we snuck out early.” THe two of them parted for a few seconds as they circumvented a decrepit wagon, and then Ayra added, “the most important thing is to keep moving. If we linger, the king will surely find us.”

My body had grown so used to traveling in reverse that whenever we stopped, I found that my whole field of vision swam at me. I had first noticed this when I was hiding in the bathroom of the Cowboy Condo during one of our numerous station stops. I had become increasingly convinced that the railroad knew my exact location and it was only a matter of time before they send one of their bulls to come and kill me.

–The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet, Reif Larsen, pg. 172

I honestly cannot say enough good things about this book; it totally charmed me.

Hermione jumped to her feet. She hadn’t looked so excited since they’d gotten back the marks for their very first piece of homework. “Stay there!” she said, and she sprinted up the stairs to the girls’ dormitories. Harry and Ron barely had time to exchange mystified looks before she was dashing back, an enormous old book in her arms.

–Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, J.K. Rowling, pg. 219

Just a 20-something girl living on the East Coast, trying to figure out life. I'm a wife and mom to two. I'm trying to rediscover my love for long walks, yoga and pilates. But not hiking. I still don't like hills. I was raised at the beach, but I don't like the beach. I like to look at it, but I don't like to swim in it, I'd prefer a pool, thanks. I'm just trying to become the best person I can be -- the woman God wants me to be. That's easier said than done!

Hubby is my all-time favorite guy. A perfect mix of serious, sarcastic, laid-back, handy and nerdy, he is the perfect complement to me. I love his strong work-ethic and the way he always loves and supports me through everything. Some of Hubby's favorite things include: hiking, Virginia Tech football, woodworking, and his family. When I married him in July 2007, I had no idea what an amazing journey we were headed on, and how I could come to love him so much more each day.

Our oldest, Colton, is three years old. He is equal parts sassy and hysterical. He loves all things train, car, bus, truck, and machine related. He has a penchant for made-up words and loves to be the clown of his pre-school class. Our younger son, Nathan, was born this May. He is pure joy and full of smiles! He is such a blessing and a perfect fit for our family.
