The 2017 Utah Readers Luncheon – Recap

This Week’s Quote:
“The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live: a live thing, a story.” – Ursula K. Le Guin

This past weekend it was my honor and privilege to share a table with authors Judy Baker and Mary Martinez at the 3rd Annual Utah Readers Luncheon. We had a blast visiting and giving away prizes. And the guest speakers, RaeAnne Thayne and Jill Shalvis were both delightful and inspiring.

Mark your calendar for October 13, 2018. We’d love to have you join us next year!


Happy Independence Day

This Week’s Quote:
“Our flag honors those who have fought to protect it, and is a reminder of the sacrifice of our nation’s founders and heroes. As the ultimate icon of America’s storied history, the Stars and Stripes represents the very best of this nation.” – Joe Barton

Have a Happy and Safe Independence Day

Friday Favorites- Taking a break

This Week’s Quote:
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” – John F. Kennedy 

Friday Favorites is taking a break through the summer, however, here’s a few quotes to tide you over until the fall:

From Abraham-Hicks

“You’re picky about the car you drive. You’re picky about what you wear. You’re picky about what you put in your mouth. We want you to be pickier about what you think.”

“What others are doing around you seems very important when you have not found your own steadiness. You want to say to them, “Don’t rock my boat! If you rock my boat, I can’t be steady.” But the truth of it is, you’re the only boat-rocker in your world. Only you can rock your boat.”

“Appreciation is the magic formula you’ve been seeking.”
