The Forgotten Pair

Peanut butter...jelly

There are many combinations in the world but none so great as my all time favorite...

Books and Coffee

I have compiled a quick list of books that are some of my favorites.
I left out all the gimmes (Bible, LOTR, Anything C.S. Lewis, Harry Potter...duh)
Here are a few classics, some famous and some unknown.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
This is probably on of my all time favorites...
 I know its dark and depressing even at some points,
 but in the end Jane and Mr. Rochester are together!

The Wind Singer by William Nicholson
In a society filled with  rules, tests, and opression, two kids rescue their nation and restore freedom!

It's Kind Of A Funny Story by Ned Vizzini
Suicidal teens checks himself into a hospital and is put into a temporary psych ward. He learns more from the people in there then he has in his whole life. He figures out he has a lot to live for, and he finds out he's an artist:)

Born Confused by Tanuja Desai Hidier
This young Indian woman trying to find her identity as an American/South Asia Indian, and her journey throughout NYC.

 Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer
Final installment for the Twilight series...I know this kind of counts as a gimme but it's just that good.

The 3 Big Questions of A Frantic Family by Patrick Lencioni
This is actually a P.C. recommendation, and I loved it. Fictional beginning with a nonfiction "how-to-apply-it-to-your-life" ending

She... by Kobi Yamada
Coffee table/display's inspirational for women everywhere:)
...and cute as can be

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Falling in love

It's interesting when you look back and try to pinpoint the actual moment you fell in love with your spouse, it's often vague and you have a general idea but nothing specific.

Alan and I revisited our past last night and found that exact moment.

 Our first full day together was at the Happy Valley Amusement Park in Shenzhen, China.

As simple as it was, that is when we fell in love.

I am so glad we went to that cheesy amusement park despite it being humid.

God really does know what He is doing and it feels so good to know that despite any past faults, we are exactly were we are supposed to be.
