Gone with the Wind

I'm a book worm...born a book worm, raised a book worm. When i was little my mom used to punish my brother and I not by making us read, but instead by taking our books away. Crazy, I know.

For as long as i can remember I have been drawn to the written word. There is just something about losing yourself in a good novel; or putting yourself in the shoes of a character found on the pages of a new book;or getting confused between which plot is your life and which plot belongs to the book you are engrossed in; or learning and using a new word found in your most recent read; or reading slower with every page so the story doesn't end; or filling in the blanks an author left out; or crying and laughing with the protagonist; or reading into the wee hours of the night, eyes burning, refusing to shut.

I think you get the picture--i LOVE to read. My all time favorite book that i just can't get enough of is "Gone with the Wind". I have read it over and over again, loving it more with every single read.

Scarlett O'Hara changed my life and I am secretly (and openly) in love with Rhett Butler, haha. Read it...i promise you won't regret it. It is one of the most beautiful novels of all time.


Born in Oregon and raised in SLC, i have zero reason to claim the title of "country girl"; but when it comes to music, I am just that: a country girl. I can't get enough of it. Who cares if every song is about break-ups, make-ups, and an old dog here and there. Its the best and i could listen to it forever. Here is my current favorite country song...

The Band Perry is quite simply, pure genius.
