Living Vicariously 2/15

I like to think that I am an artistic person. But this literary masterpiece honestly blew my mind. Irving Stone paints such a powerful picture of the life of Michaelangelo. After I read this book, I finally started to legitimately recognize the intents and desires of artists to create works of symbolism and passion. The story line was intriguing as well; it made me want to travel over to Italy and see all of his works for myself. Who knows; maybe I will.

Live Vicariously: 1/15

My wanderlust is not merely a physical yearning to explore every region of this earth. It is also a desire to read nearly every book I get my hands on. Ever since I've been young I have immersed myself in a plethora of worlds and visited places and met people through my literary travels that I would never have thought possible.

That is why I thought I would revisit my "best of the best", my favs of the favs, and share them with you. The best part of these trips is that you can take them again and again and again...

Denise Hunter is one of my favorite inspirational novelists. I am a hopeless romantic, so I suppose that helps...her stories are so real. Driftwood Lane is the most recent book of hers that I have devoured, so I chose to share it with you. This is the perfect book for the beach or curling up by the fire. Make sure you have a good chunk of time for this read; I was totally engrossed for about 7 hours.

Caught Ya Gingerbread Man!

Every year Fort Wayne holds a Gingerbread Festival. This year over 100 individuals and groups entered the contest. This replica of the TinCaps stadium was my favorite. I can't get over the details! The Teddy Graham audience is the best.
