I loved The Rules of Magic! I was a little cautious to be reading Alice Hoffman, because I sort of remembered finding one of her prior books being, um, kind of dark. Something above about doves, I think. I'm not sure. I must have blocked it out. This book, however, is a jewel. It's a … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman

Blue Moon

My husband and I got up early and raced outside to try to see the Blue Moon Lunar Eclipse at the 'optimal time' here in Maine (6:45 am)--since it only occurs once every hundred years or so, we didn't want to miss it.

I was with my little son last night, a toddler in his stroller. I packed him up and we headed out to McDonald's for a treat.
