I finished ME BEFORE YOU by Jojo Meyers, and wow. Just wow. I loved this story so hard, even finding it difficult to put it down at the ballpark. It was beautiful and heartbreaking. I highly recommend it.

Me Before You


The end of state assessments for my class. In celebration, we’re also ending the year with a pow. Behind each tissue covered circle is a super student’s name and they get lots of fun privileges on their special day, including sitting at the “hero table”. They’re excited to be super heroes and I’m excited that there are only twenty-five days of school left. Oh my goodness, I can’t wait for summer!

Exhausted From… 

The past few weeks. I knew April and May would be busy, but the sheer amount of added obligations, and therefore stress, took me by surprise none the less. Some highlights, however, included running the 12K Bloomsday race, in Spokane, WA, and going on a “Goonies” sight-seeing tour in Astoria, Oregon.

Goonies never say die!

Proud of…

My husband, who recently took command of a Cavalry Squadron. Last weekend we were witness to the Uncasing of the Regimental Colors. As if the day wasn’t already amazing, a bald eagle flew over the Squadron during the ceremony. I asked my husband how he managed to coordinate that, but he hasn’t yet revealing his secret.



The fact that whoever created this picture actually gets me. Also, I think it’s hilarious.


Hoping for…

A bit of kindness in our world. If I could ask one thing it would be for each of spread a bit of kindness to those around us. It’s amazing how much one kind word can brighten someone’s day.

Working on…

Self-acceptance, balance, and drafting my new young adult manuscript. Have you written a Currently… post? Let me know. I’d love to read it!
