Ways to Live a Better Life

I started thinking today about something. If 80-year-old me was trying to give advice to me today on how to live a better life, what types of tips would I be lending? What sage words could I supply?

So I thought and thought and came up with these ways to live a better life.

What advice would you offer yourself?

Waiting on Wednesday: Weather Witch by Shannon Delany

Waiting on Wednesday is an awesome weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Basically, we fan-girl (or fan-boy) over an upcoming release. This one was SO easy for me.

Weather Witch by Shannon Delany

Weather Witch release date: June 25th, 2013
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
What's it about according to Goodreads: In a vastly different and darker Philadelphia of 1844, steam power has been repressed, war threatens from deep, dark waters, and one young lady of high social standing is expecting a surprise at her seventeenth birthday party–but certainly not the one she gets!

Jordan Astraea, who has lived out all of her life in Philadelphia’s most exclusive neighborhood, is preparing to celebrate her birthday with friends, family and all the extravagance they might muster. The young man who is most often her dashing companion, Rowen Burchette, has told her a surprise awaits her and her best friend, Catrina Hollindale, wouldn’t miss this night for all the world!

But storm clouds are gathering and threatening to do far more than dampen her party plans because someone in the Astraea household has committed the greatest of social sins by Harboring a Weather Witch.

Shannon is also doing a call for anyone who might want to get involved. Find out how you can help spread the word about Weather Witch
