Book Review Sarah's Key

I forgot to share this book with you.
I read it on the drive when Wayne and I went to the States last month.
My friend Debbie told me I needed to read it, and leant it to me.
I have to say it was a great book.
Not only was it a fast read, it was heart touching.
It was a bit predictable, but then again it took place in WW2, which most of us know the sad events that took place at that time.
But it also took place in present time as well.
I would highly recommend this book.
I thought I did good, I didn't cry until the end.

Onto My Day:
I had a long Todo list…as I usually have on a Monday.
But honestly, I don't think I did one thing on that list…besides take Kristy to work.
I had a visit with a good friend.
Ended up going shopping with Kristy and Heather.
Chatting for a couple of hours with another friend on the phone.
Made supper
I am not one to do housework after supper…that is my down time with my honey ;)

Heather and Kristy went over to Ashley's house to help her decorate her house tonight.
Isn't her decor so pretty.
I love the mantel (that I made for her, yes, I do have to mention it every time I share it with you), the greenery and the stockings hung from it are so picture perfect :)

Ashley informed me that her decorating isn't compete. She wants to put more filler picks in her tree and more lighting.

I hope you all had a very Creative Day today :)

  10. Thanks for the book suggestion - will have to read it! Love love Ashley's tree - beautiful, and yes "your fireplace" looks gorgeous too ;-)

  11. Oh I read that book when Lielle was itty bitty & all I did was sit around and feed her all day! It's hard to remember anything about it because I was in newborn baby fog, but I do remember that I enjoyed it!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
