Happy Thanksgiving!!!

So in light of my new outlook in life, I wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I am not doing the big dinner thing this year which is strange for me, but all my family is in another state, all my friends too, plus we still haven't fixed our stove, I am hoping to be off work tomorrow and Friday and I will spend the days trying to clean the house, get everything ready to start the new year right. I am going to try to tackle a lot this year and I am hoping I don't loose momentum! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with all your friends and family!

A New Start to a New Me

I posted a little bit ago about what I would do,  What story I want my life to tell, and I have realized that one of the things I really want to have in that story is to be healthy. I have PCOS, and am Overweight, I am a caffeine junkie, and a sugar addict and I am just not an all around healthy person. I want to fix that. I want to be at a healthy weight so that I can eventually have a baby, I want energy and not to be sleepy all the time, I want to feel more like me and less like a zombie who needs coke a cola to function on daily tasks.
I am going to start a weekly series on this blog to chronicle my journey, I just want to figure out a way to make me more me.

What Kind Of Story Do I Want My Life To Tell? What Would I Do If I Was Not Afraid?

I am a musical junkie, I breathe Broadway, and I need music in my soul. I have been listening to Hamilton like almost all of the world today, I even told my husband it reminded me of this generation's 1776. But It has me thinking, What story do I want my life to tell? I know that eventually I will have my story told, hopefully by my kids, I also know that as of right now, my story isn't much.

I want to make sure that I start trying to live with out the fear. I know my health is not great and I need to work on it. I have spent the first 30 years of my life being scared, being afraid, being quiet and good and invisible. Being someone who isn't a character, but is a background and I can't live like that any more. I am not going to quit my job and live in a van, or travel the country, but I am going to make each day a little more braver. I am going to try to update the blog more, speak my mind more, live more and be a little more me, a little less what everyone wants me to be.

I am going to start trying to work on my health, I am going to make a new 101 in 1001, I am going to make my life a story I want told...

What about you? What would you do if you were not scared? What story will your life tell?

A Long Awaited Book Review

Hey guys, I know I've been gone for a while, but I am back now and plan to update at least 2 times a week from now on! 
My first post is a book review or 2!

Campbell's Redemption: A Highland Pride Novel Written by Sharon Cullen,  This book was really good, it had a lot of accurate history and I really did like Cait, I was not as impressed with the hero at the start of the book, but he did grow on me. I think that this one is really a good book if you are in the mood for a little historical romance!

PIRATE HEIRESS: A Historical, Pirate Romance Saga with Mystery, Intrigue, and a Quest for Hidden Treasure (A Pirates & Petticoats Novel Book 4) By Chloe Flowers is also a good historical read. It is a stand alone book, but is connected with her series and I really liked that even though it is connected with the Pirates and Petticoates books you didn't have to have read the other books in the series to be connected to the story! Stevie really pulled me in, I wanted to know why she was stealing the ship, I wanted to know more about Captain Colan. Well written, steady paced with high sea adventure, mystery, suspense, intrigue, pirates, privateers, a quest for a hidden treasure and romance. There are many twists and turns in this story, to be sure, some are totally unexpected.

Christmas Joy: A Novel by Nancy Naigle is a wonderful contemporary romance. I felt like this one had a kind of Christmas Carol vibe to it, with out being straight Dickens. Joy while sweet, is very into her work, no time for fun, or to relax or the holidays, Ben is a steadfast country boy not even slightly impressed by Joy's big city ways. I really enjoyed coming to know each character and wanting them to have a happy Christmas! 

What books have you been reading? Do you like 1 on 1 book reviews or ones like this were I have a few books together?
