Lit Tuesday: Writing (non-)Progress

Okay. I'll admit it. I've been so focused on writing stuff for the blog and coming up with ideas for it and thinking about what I want to work on with our house and social outings that I've let my writing fall by the wayside. Yet again. Travesty! I'm determined to get my butt in … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Writing (non-)Progress

Thirsty Thursday: Irish Beers

I hope we all made it through St. Patrick’s Day unscathed and with great memories and good times. Miles and I had a pretty calm day (though it was wet because it rained unexpectedly and that wasn’t fun considering it was cold rain and I was in shorts and a tank top), but I still … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Irish Beers

Lit Tuesday: Irish Mythology Influences

Last week, I touched on Irish mythology and places to research it and all that good stuff. Today, I have three recommendations that have heavy Irish/Celtic mythology influences in their plots and worldbuilding or is essentially historical fiction. I even found a list of books to add to my ever-growing reading list. First, let's start … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Irish Mythology Influences

Lit Tuesday: Irish Mythology

I thought about doing a bunch of research for this topic, but now that I no longer have a university library of peer-reviewed articles at my fingertips, I wasn't really sure where to start looking. And honestly, half the fun in research is seeing what you find yourself! When I was in my last semester … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Irish Mythology

Thirsty Thursday: Scotch

As we’re all aware (maybe), it’s already March. I don’t know about you, but I associate March with a few things: Miles’ birthday (which is today), the color green, clover, and St. Patrick’s Day. By a leap in association, we can include Ireland, Scotland, England, and Wales  in my list of things I think of … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Scotch

Lit Tuesday: Edna O’Brien

Now that we are solidly into March, I thought I'd take this month to attempt to do some research on a certain country and region. There are many things that come to mind when I think about March and what I associate with it, but Ireland is at the top of the pack. It's a … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Edna O’Brien

Thirsty Thursday: Asheville Visit

As I mentioned last week, Miles and I went to Asheville recently. We met in the mountains when we were at Western Carolina University and lived up there for four years, so the mountains are a place we love to return to. We realized we hadn't been to the mountains in over a year, so … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Asheville Visit

Lit Tuesday: The Lunar Chronicles

As we're about at the end of February, I thought I should review a book series I'm currently obsessed with--I mean, that fits the theme of love that is usually associated with February. And it doesn't get any more romantic than a fairy tale retelling! I forget exactly how I found out about The Lunar … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: The Lunar Chronicles

Thirsty Thursday: Happy Margarita Day!

Miles and I recently went to Asheville. I can't wait to tell y'all about the places we found there, but first, we have to celebrate National Margarita Day. I agree--I would have thought that National Margarita Day would be during a warmer month, since I always associate it as being a summertime drink. But considering … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Happy Margarita Day!

Lit Tuesday: Wildlife Authors

This past weekend was the Southeastern Wildlife Expo (SEWE) here in Charleston. It has become a tradition for me, Miles, and my in-laws to attend this and get our fill of wildlife, conservation, and dogs. There are so many dogs there. It's fantastic. This year, I thought I'd try to pay attention and see what … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Wildlife Authors
