Choose True Love- The Choice

If you know me, you know that I absolutely love Nicholas Sparks.  I am determined that I will meet him one day, so if you have any connections to help mark that off the bucket list,let me know!  I really want him to autograph my copy of THE NOTEBOOK, since that is when I fell in love with his writing, but unfortunately he does not have any book signings in Atlanta (and never has,from what my research has shown me!) I can go on and on about his writing, but it gets better... If you love movies at all, I am pretty sure you know that several of his books have been turned into movies and we get another one to enjoy! The CHOICE is headed our way!!!  (You know, you could get a copy of the book and the movie and make an AWESOME gift basket for your mom... just saying!) From novelist Nicholas Sparks,  the  author of classic love stories  The  Notebook  and  Dear John ,  the  year’s most moving romance, The   Choice , will be available on Digital HD April 19 and on Blu-ray™ (plus Digita

Mothers Day plans? Watch Joy! #JoyInsiders

If you are trying to plan a great Mothers Day weekend, why not include a movie night? You could plan to watch it, or add it to a gift basket or something.  The opportunities are endless.   I have not seen  Joy, featuring Jennifer Lawrence, yet, but I plan to do so at some point...  maybe even this mothers day for me!   Just wanted to share for any of you looking for suggestions!   JOY JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces.

Native American Festival in South Georgia @chehawpark

It seems like Spring Break starts at different times for different zones.  Some started their spring break back in February and some are just now finishing up their break now. We had a stay-cation for ours this year.  It is just too much to try and plan to go and do when everyone else is going and doing as well.  Well, we did actually go somewhere, just not your typical spring break destination, we went back to my hometown to visit my parents.  It is Albany, Georgia and for those that go to the beach, you could totally swing through on your way home and stay a day or two.   Anyways, we were there to visit and that's when I spotted it.  ("It" being the tee-pee's that are placed throughout the city.) It is an advertisement for the yearly tradition of the Indian Festival that is held at our local zoo. I thought it would be fun to take Broxton to see it, since I had not been since my teenage years.  I was lucky enough to get media passes to go and now I get to tell you a

THE Perfect Mothers Day gift- Origami Owl

In the age of the internet, it seems like I am always hearing about this and that online.  For me, I have to see things in person (or know someone who has had a personal experience with it,) it is always just in the back of my mind.  I don't remember when I first heard of Origami Owl, but I tell you this... I did think it looked cute, but jewelry that was affordable must be cheap quality.  At least that was what I told myself.  My opinion changed when I was able to review the Origami Owl collection!
