This book was recommended to me by Megan Auman (www.meganauman.com) and, since I already had Brene Brown's other book (which I can't remember the name of) on my "must read" list, I decided to go ahead & ask Mr. Amazon to send me both of them ASAP.
I started reading this last night and here's what I can tell you. I am 15 pages in and this book is going to change my life. I am almost in tears as I type that.
She talks about courage (the everyday type, not the "i'm a hero" type), connection and compassion in ways that are real and "actionable", if that makes sense. It's almost reading like a how-to book of how to be a better person. In fact, it IS a how-to book.
Ok, i'm going to go read now. :)

Don't you love it when you get a good book that you just can't put down because you just have to know what happens next? Me, too! I have been on a serious Lee Child/Jack Reacher kick for the past month. I mean, OBSESSED.
Jack Reacher is a knight in shinig armor. Bigger than life, literally. He always wins the fight and he always gets the girl. (Total aside, have you noticed that the girls/women always seem to look alike? Reacher/Child definitely seem to have a "type"!)

We are leaving soon on a driving trip to California to visit our oldest son and his wife! I am looking forward to this trip for so many reasons - family visit, driving trip, enjoy the beautiful southwest and western US, mostly computer-free, AND....one of my very favorite things to do: we love to go to out of the way places and look for beautiful and unusual rocks!
So I am sitting here with my coffee and one of my favorite rockhounding guide books, planning the drive! Oh, the rocks we'll see!
That silver bracelet is BRAND NEW on the website - it's part of my Jacks Collection, inspired by the game of jacks most of us played as kids. This collection is so much fun to wear and it reminds you of those childhood days everytime you wear it!

Oh, I really do love Amos Decker, the hero in a series of mysteries by David Baldacci. In this book, Amos, the detective with the amazing and unrelenting memory, is back in his hometown to right a wrong he may have committed in his very first murder investigation. As usual, this is a book I couldn't put down!
If you have other books to recommend, I would love to know! Always looking for a good read as long as it's not TOO bloody...also torture - I don't do well with reading about torture. So, thanks in advance!
The silver bracelet is one of my favs & is available in my online store!

This book, Flat Broke with Two Goats, is an entertaining book - I'm always looking for something new to read and this one came up on the books on the "Big Library" list of books. If you don't know about "Big Library" (and you like to read), check it out - it's a nice concept and the books listed for the program as pretty good, for the most part.
This book starts out kind of sad, in an unfortunate sort of way. Major financial problems are always pretty sad. Anyway, things improve from there for this family and things are poignant and funny and sometimes sad again. Bonus? It's a true story, which I didn't realized until I Googled it after I finished reading it.
This silver bracelet is one of my very favorites and I wear it all the time. The fact that is was inspired by the game of "jacks" is an added plus. It just makes me happy every time I look at it!
