A few of my favorite things: Summer rain, my cozy hoodie, lots of coffee, and listening to veteran interviews.


Speaking of veterans, I'm super excited to be helping out with Pictures for Heroes! It's a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring our veterans by interviewing and photographing our nation's heroes, to ensure that their bravery and sacrifice is never forgotten. Every story will be compiled into a book. Along with a team of writers, I'm transcribing and writing short biographies! Please consider supporting the project and pre-order your book!


Welp, I finally finished the Band of Brothers series. I've seen the first few episodes multiple times, but the library always wants it back before I can finish all ten episodes. (What's up with that?!) Reading A Company of Heroes and Brothers in Battle, Best of Friends made it all the more painful because I knew what was going to happen to certain paratroopers. It was SO GOOD AND I CRIED. 


This is one gem of a book! It's chocked full of first hand accounts of French civilians during the D-Day invasion. It's a perfect research book for reenacting! I think I underlined most of the book.


 Some new reenacting items! I'm armed and dangerous. 

What are you currently reading/writing/researching?

    1. Evie!! Thanks for commenting! It's good to hear from you!

  2. Hi, Emily!
    Love new blog posts!
    I'm still working on my three-year project--(Ahhhh! Yeah, three years next month, and I still can't believe I've kept up with it!)
    Your blog has been a great encouragement to me!
    Thanks a lot!

    1. Thank you for reading, Laura! Good luck with your project!

  3. Coffee and hoodies are the best, since it's been a little chilly here this summer. :D
    That reenacting gear is awesome, by the way. Love it!

  4. I recently finished reading the memoir of a survivor of the USS Arizona. It is called All the Gallant Men by Donald Stratton. I HIGHLY recommend reading it! I am researching Pearl Harbor for a novel set during the attack.
