Hi everyone! My name is Allison and I love to read! I can probably chart my life up to this point based on the books I have read. They are what keeps me grounded, sane, energized, imaginative, empathetic, inspired, and connected. And they’re always there when you need a friend. In between books, I have quite the busy life. I am a wife, mom to three fantastic kiddos, outdoor enthusiast, crafty-lady, teacher, writer, foodie, gardener wanna-be, coffee addict, tree hugger, grits-loving Southern girl, Midwest transplant. My house is always a mess, but my life is full. After moving from North Carolina to Minnesota while six months pregnant, I decided to take a break from teaching. As a language arts teacher, I was a voracious reader. I always made it a habit to share what I was reading with my students. I loved having conversations about books with my students and fellow language arts teachers. Once I found myself as a full-time stay-at-home mom, I continued reading, but no longer had an outlet to talk about the books I was reading. I decided to start this blog to have a place to discuss books and life. Thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet!
