SYNOPSIS

A Pandora’s Box retelling

Andora is a beautiful young woman with insatiable curiosity. Raised in splendor, she is spoiled by her privileged life. When a love letter is slid under her door, her life takes a drastically unromantic turn. Nothing makes sense—her arranged marriage, the gifts her parents bestow on her wedding day, or her new husband’s temperament.

As Andora begins to unravel the mysteries around her, she ignites a chain of events that have the power to sabotage her entire village forever. Only her new-found wisdom as a desperate peasant’s wife can save her from her folly.

A soft breeze waved the plants around the ponds edge as she stood, looking out over the lake with her hands in her pockets.Read More »

Big News and Emotions

Hello all! I have been waiting what feels like a long time (3 months) to share this news! My big bro is getting married. He is the second one of us to get married, BUT it feels like the first for me in a lot of ways because my oldest brother got married when I was pretty young (think13ish) so I don’t really remember the process. He has just been married and they have 3 munchkins with one more on the way, so yeah. It has been a while.

We got to have Luke and Joshua live at home for a LONG time by the worlds standards. (which, who cares about those anyway) I felt so blessed, and I did a post very early this year about them moving out and how that was somewhat bittersweet for me.Read More »
