Europe Trip Highlights Part 4

I realized today that I need to wrap up my posts about my trip to Europe, because we just booked our flights for our next trip! This is to a part of the world we’ve never been to before, and a new hemisphere! Any guesses where we’re going? But back to our last trip. So far I shared about going to the sea , the mountains , and the lake , but now we’re journeying up to Austria!  We went there for a good reason- the Red Bull Ring is right outside of Slovenia in the town of Spielberg, Austria. For those of you who don’t know, Dan and I are both big Formula One fans (he’s been one for a while and I got into it after watching Drive to Survive).  He found out that there are opportunities for regular people to drive cars on the same track that the race uses, so we had to do it! I got to be a passenger princess and it was such a cool experience- we got over 150 MPH and it was insane how fast it felt, but still way slower than the actual drivers. We also got a tour of the track and got to stand

October Reads and Reviews

Somehow we're almost through with the month of November, but I still have lots of fun books to share that I read in October! Let's get right to them- Yours Truly by Abby Jimenez For the most part I really enjoyed this book- Abby always writes such great characters with so much depth and the conversations always seem so realistic. My only complaint about this was all of the fake drama- I usually love the fake relationship trope, but this time it just seemed so forced and dramatic for me. I liked the side characters a lot, particularly the grandpa and Jafar! Such a fun and easy read. My rating - 3.5/5 When in Rome by Sarah Adams This was another cute romance by an author I love to read and I know it'll just make me feel happy on the inside when I read it! This was a bit more of a slow burn to me- it took a while for me to get into it but once I did I couldn't stop. I liked the town setting and all of the quirky town people, and also loved the developing relationship. Supe
