MERRY MONDAY: The one with the announcement

By Jenna Winegeart / September 12, 2020 /

Happy Monday, lovelies! Gather round for announcement time, will you? When we took family pictures back in 2018, I knew I wanted them done in & outside our home. I wanted to freeze frame time & remember this as where we spent the majority of our minutes as a family. When we moved into this…

BOOK REVIEW- THE SECRETS WE KEPT by Lara Prescott

By Jenna Winegeart / November 25, 2019 /

I’m always torn when I finish a good read– on one hand, it feels like an achievement. It’s nice to see how a story ends, plus I know a new book is waiting for me– but on the other hand, I’ve spent so much time with the characters & now the story is over! It’s…

FAVORITE CHILDREN’S BOOKS

By Jenna Winegeart / October 30, 2019 /

Shopping for children’s books is one of my favorite things to shop for. I started collecting them in college, & I basically look for any opportunity to buy one now– birthday present, Christmas present, travel souvenir, & any other random special occasion– it’s safe to say I’ll show up with a book! I like buying…

BOOK REVIEW: SEARCHING FOR SUNDAY by Rachel Held Evans

By Jenna Winegeart / October 24, 2019 /

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.” -Henri Nouwen This quote introduced chapter thirty, titled…

BOOK REVIEW: A WOMAN IS NO MAN by Etaf Rum

By Jenna Winegeart / September 16, 2019 /

When I pick a work of fiction to read, I tend to pick a story with a bit of whimsy, a dash of hope, & a spoonful of wit. I feel all the feelings long after that last page comes to a close, so I want to choose my feelings wisely. This book went against…

BOOK REVIEW: WOMEN IN SUNLIGHT by Frances Mayes

By Jenna Winegeart / August 19, 2019 /

If you’re familiar with the book-turned-movie, Under the Tuscan Sun, well this is the same author. Frances Mayes took me to Italy for an entire blessed year– to San Rocco, to be exact– a small village tucked away in the rolling hills of Tuscany. Commence your Italy playlist search on Spotify. Kit, a Florida native,…

BOOK REVIEW: BODY LOVE by Kelly Leveque

By Jenna Winegeart / August 6, 2019 /

Kelly Leveque began her career working for Fortune 500 medical field companies such as Johnson & Johnson and Stryker, focusing on tumor gene mapping and molecular sub typing to oncologists. Yeah, the girl doesn’t play. I don’t even know what that job description means. But from reading her book, I get that Kelly knows science…

BOOK REVIEW: WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING by Delia Owens

It’s 1952 deep in the marsh of Barkley Cove, a small town on the coast of North Carolina. Kya, six years old, watches her mother walk down their sandy path, never looking back. Soon enough, her four older siblings all leave, too– even Jodie, the brother she was closest too. All because of an angry…

BOOK REVIEW: CITY OF GIRLS by Elizabeth Gilbert

By Jenna Winegeart / July 31, 2019 /

1940. New York City. Theater life. And the tagline: You don’t have to be a good girl to be a good person. I’m in. Give me all the pages, Liz. I fell in love with this author when I was in college & read about her travels in Eat, Pray, Love. And again when I…
