PKU Mom, single parent, photographer, artist, blogger.... lover of life!

As far back as I can remember, I have always had a love for books – not necessarily just reading books, but books themselves - their feel, their smell, their look. I remember my cousin coming to visit with her parents, every time she’d come over she would take out my copy of The Secret Garden and read to me. I loved that story. One of my favorite quotes from that book is “If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.”

I got to thinking about that quote and came to the revelation that if you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a bookshelf. That thought revealed to me why I love reading and books the way I do. Each book is a different place, a chance to travel to a different world, a different life, a chance to learn something new, re-live a memory, motivate me and to find inspiration.

As a single mom of two, books are my form of travel or vacation. My children love to read, which is something I am quite proud to have handed down to them.
