About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

The Scent of Cherry Blossoms Book Review

It all started with a single cherry tree and a forbidden romance...  The Scent of Cherry Blossoms, by Cindy Woodsmall, is a charming read with a peek into the ways of the Old Order Amish and the Old Order Mennonite.  Annie Martin is Mennonite and Aden Zook is Amish.  They are allowed a friendship but nothing more.  Roman Zook, Aiden's brother, is suffering from a terrible accident and sees no future for himself.  See what happens when love steps in...

I was entranced by the love story of Daadi Moses, Annie's grandfather, and the cherry trees he planted for his sweetheart.  Love stories such as that are rare and pure, indeed.  You will enjoy your visit to Apple Ridge, Pennsylvania, where the people live simply, friends and neighbors look after each other, electricity is a rare occurrence and horse and buggies are the rule rather than the exception.  The Scent of Cherry Blossoms is delightful and heartwarming.

Sounds like a very sweet book with good morals. Hard to come by these days.
Good luck with all the Realtor issues. I remember how exhausting that all was. Hang in there.
