I know! I Know..it has been a million years, but I am back. I hope you all had an amazing 2017 and start to the new year so far. One of my major resolutions for 2018 is to start blogging again. Life got the best of me last year, and between moving and facing new challenges in my life I just lacked the inspiration and time to blog. One of the things I like to do at the end of each year is to reflect on what I can do better or be better at in the next year. For me one of the things that I really missed doing was blogging, because it was a way for me to create and share as well as show my creative side, and a fun way to write and interact with the world.
So hears to all of us doing our best to fulfill all of our resolutions for the years as best as we can. I know that life happens and sometimes it can be hard but if we push through we can achieve all of our goals! Cheers to the new year and I hope you all have a great 2018!

Hey guys!! Happy Throwback Thursday! About three years ago I went to Venice (gosh I miss traveling!!) and I fell in love with it’s beauty and romance. I’ve seen it in pictures and movies (the film Dangerous Beauty is one of my favorites), but there’s no substitute for seeing the city in person. In film’s it’s much more grandeur than it is today, but the crumbling palaces, beautiful art in its churches and museums, the Carnevale make Venice literally a living tribute to the past.
Venice is surrounded by narrow canals and streets spread over more than one hundred islands with gondolas gliding down these watery alleyways to beautiful palazzos emerging to the sea. These twisted and tangled passageways are an amazing attraction, it’s the city to get lost in, especially if you want to find all the cute little bistro’s and coffee shops, and shop at cute little stores to find that perfect Venetian mask.
After you’ve seen all the major sights, close your map and set off wondering. You’ll see pretty and colorful flower boxes hanging off of old windows, and the motorboat traffic on the Grand Canal. You’ll discover the Rialto Bridge, San Marco, and even an amazing glass blowing factory, in this beautiful and enchanting city with no cars.

Delicious Italian Cannoli and Coffee, a delicious snack as we took a break from our wandering around Venice!
I hope that if and when you visit this enchanting city you call in love with it’s beauty and wonder as much as I did. I would love to know what you thought of Venice!!!
Hey guys!! Hope you are all having a great friday so far!! It’s really hot here 99F right now, maybe a too hot for me, to go into the pool!! lol…But a good day to stay in and read. 🙂 I went to Target this week (which is never a good idea, I always end up buying stuff I don’t need), I ended buying lots of new books!!!
I am always looking for new books to read, other than science books for school…so I went on Pinterest/NY Times best seller list to find reviews of various novels. While on searching I found this really cool photo that I thought I would share with all of you!!
Book Exchange in London
It’s call the second hand book exchange!! I think that whoever created this idea is a genius!! They turned old telephone boothes in the UK into miniature libraries! All you have to do is take a book and leave one behind. Especially in a time where practically everyone has a cell phone this is a neat and great idea. I wish we had had telephone boothes where I lived.

I also found a site for a e-book exchange if you are a kindle user!
Check it out if you are interested in exchanging the e-books you have for a new one!! They have all the details on the website!!
