#ShopSmall on November 26th!

shop small for small business on Nov 26th

Saturday, November 26th is #SmallBusinessSaturday! Don’t forget to #shopsmall!


What does #ShopSmall mean to me? To me, it means waking up early that Saturday and preparing to drive to a few local-ish stores. Picking up a coffee and darting in and out of the stores as I decide what I need to pick up for my shopping list for the holidays.

Where will I shop?

At this point, I’m undecided- but I’m going to lay out some options as to where my CRV may take me:


Stopping in at TurnRow Books– looking over the signed books or checking out the newest hardcover books. For #SmallBusinessSaturday, they will have 2 specials- 20% off books from their Holiday Gift Guide and Sign up for Child’s First Book Club and get first book free. As an aunt to the beautiful Miss A ( and about to be an aunt again!) this has much appeal to me! Continue reading

Traveling With T is on VACATION!

Traveling With T on vacation March 26th March 29th

Now, I’ve already scheduled some tweets about some upcoming things and I’m sure I won’t be off the social media grid completely- BUT I will be focused more on having fun with the people I am with than keeping up with all the social media fun! Continue reading

A few weeks ago, it was time for Unofficial Booktopia. What is Unofficial Booktopia, you ask? Well, Unofficial Booktopia is a play on Official Booktopia (hosted by the fantastic Books on The Nightstand). How did it all start? A few of us met in Oxford, MS back in 2012- and we became fast friends- discussing books, going out for drinks, and just having a good time. After that weekend, we all stayed in touch through the power of social media and monthly phone chats. Unofficial Booktopia happened, though, because in 2013- none of the Booktopia sites were close for 2 of us to get to be able to attend (basically, it was a wing and a prayer kind of thing). So, one suggested- let’s get together in Jackson, MS (home to Lemuria Books). So we began the plan and it worked! We all managed to get together (and engage in some literary hijinks!) We had such a good time that Unofficial Booktopia was born- and this year, it was in Texas. Continue reading
