Does anyone else prepare lists for themselves all day long? It would be great to know someone else out there is like me. I create lists for everything. This time of the year is especially exciting for me because I am already thinking summer. Summer vacation season starts at the end of May.… Continue reading Books for Summer Vacation
In honor of National Poetry Month I wanted to post a new poem. I will not be posting any other poems for awhile because I have a book coming soon.
