"Small Sacrifices: A True Story of Passion and Murder"
by Ann Rule
"Small Sacrifices" is the true story of Diane Downs, mother of three. One night, Diane arrives at a hospital with her three kids in the car – one dead and two in critical condition – claiming she was stopped on the road by a man who then shot all four of them. However, as investigators delve into the case, they begin to get suspicious, wondering if it was Diane herself who shot her kids.

Who I Am And Who I Want To Be


Birthdays are always a time of reflection. When I turned 23, I posted 23 things I'd learned. I shared some general words for 24. For my 25th, I listed 20 things I don't care about anymore plus five that I do.

And now, 26.

Another year older, another year wiser.

In Need Of A Change | Sunday Shares


Good morning, friends. I'm writing this from bed Sunday morning before I head off to brunch with my family. I'm wishing I had gotten up earlier to work up more of an appetite because the menu for this place looks insane, but I'll probably still eat enough for two people anyway.

I missed a Wednesday posting day again two weeks back and found my mind wandering again to, What if I stopped blogging? I thought about this last year too, around this same time of year. Must be something in the air.

It's That Time Of Year Again


I'm writing this on Saturday at 10 p.m. and I have no idea how it's already so late. I feel like I haven't done anything today. And it wasn't one of those days where I was intentional about it either.

There are days I'll purposely make no plans except for sitting on the couch watching Netflix or reading a book. Days where my only plan is to have no plan, the only thing on my to-do list is to do nothing.

That's not what today was. Today, time just got away from me.
