For years I have been tip toeing around writing my first novel. Outline after outline after outline has been typed up and left to get lost between file pixels on my laptop.

A goal I set for 2018 was to read one book per month. I read these titles in no particular order and without any theme in mind. To dwindle my constantly growing stack of "to read" books, I selected whichever writing style or story I was in the mood for that month.

There’s nothing like mountains, drinks and a few vacation days with your partner and best friend. Zach and I haven’t been on a trip together since the honeymoon back in October, so we were beyond ready for our Colorado venture this past week.
 

We may be newlyweds, but...
