Personal Life and Creativity:

being #creative is not a #hobby it is a way of life #wayoflife #creativity:

  • I abandoned my book blog Between Library Shelves to start this blog so I could broaden what I blogged about. So far, I am enjoying the content I am posting.
  • I began to bullet journal as my main way to keep track of my planning, goals, and lists. It has been so much fun.
  • Donald and I celebrated two years of marriage.
  • Donald accepted an extension with his job which means we are in Germany for another two years.
  • I have met some truly wonderful people while living her in Germany that I will call friends for years to come!

The Any Book Book Club:


  • The book club made it to its 1 year anniversary successfully.
  • We took our first Literary trip to Paris , France where we had a blast and created lots of memories.
  • However, several of the most frequent club members PCS’d and I grieved the loss of them, and I feel it affected the book club for several months.
  • We have a logo too thanks to Brian Cline!
