I have always had a healthy passion for reading. My love of books started at an early age, as soon as I could read my life long love affair for books began. Reading to me is one of the finest pleasures in life. My guilty indulgence is a good book, a soft blanket and a cozy concoction. It is thrilling to hold a book in your hands and wonder at the secrets that are buried deep within. Then page by page the story pours out revealing it's heart and soul until there is nothing left to show; nothing left to say. To me a good book is one that continues to call to you after completion. The characters are still whispering in your mind; their story threads reaching out to entangle you even as you pick up another book to start the wonderful process anew. Each book is a new adventure, a new story, another find. That is why I read!
I am currently a stay at home mother of two toddlers, who keep me very busy. I also have a wonderful, supportive husband without whom this blog would not be possible. I am a recent transplant to the rainy, region of Portland, Oregon; thus the reason for Rainy Day Ramblings. The many rainy days here provide me ample time to snuggle up under a comfy blanket with a cat and read while the rain drips down my window.
I also, when I find time, enjoy baking, candle and jewelry making, cross stitching and spending ample time with family.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you will stay awhile and chat about books. Please leave me a note or comment. They are always much appreciated!
