Summer Reading!

“Talking As Fast As I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (And Everything in Between)” by: Lauren Graham. This book is a collection of essays from Lauren’s journey of her first ever audience for a play to her every last day of filming of “Gilmore Girls: A Year In A Life.” Lauren Graham is best known for being Lorelai Gilmore of the hit series Gilmore Girls and Sarah Braverman on another hit show Parenthood.

The title of the book is ironic because one of the main aspects of the Lorelai Gilmore’s character is the fast dialogue. She is always hyped up on coffee served by Luke Danes.

This book also takes you through Lauren living the single life in Hollywood to her finding Mr. Right.

She really went into detail about playing her favorite character Lorelai. From the first day, she met Alexis Bledel (who was her on screen daughter) to her very last day of filming “Gilmore Girls: A Year in A Life.” Her reaction to being at in Stars Hollow was priceless and very special. There really is anything more special than watching a delightful story come to a great end!
If you are a fan of the Gilmore Girls series and looking for an easy, fun, laugh-out-loud book, this book is for you!

Fenway Frank


November 26th, 2004 will always be a day that I will forever remember! That was the day I got my first puppy Frank Hadley. Now I am the youngest out of seven kids and our house was pretty full and hectic back then. It was a challenge trying to convince my parents to let us get a pet of any kind. After weeks of trying to convince my mother and it working. My Dad eventually gave in as well! So on this Black Friday back in 04′ my family loaded into the minivan and headed off to New Hampshire to look at puppies.

Once we got the breeder my brothers and sisters began picking out the right puppy. My Dad kept saying “We are only looking and not buying!” Until the breeder said he had a Miniature Dachshund in the barn out in the back., that a family decided they didn’t want anymore. Just then the smallest, cutest puppy I have ever seen walked through the door! That was how Fenway Frank became a Hadley!

Fenway Frank lived a great 12 years, full of tail wags, naps, treats, trips to Boston and Maine and great memories! However, around 11 years old he became sick and we knew our time with him was limited. Sadly on December 5th 2015 he passed away during hos favorite passed time sleeping. That was for sure the toughest day of my life so far. Fenway was not just a pet but my Puppy Brother and my best friend! I will never forget the memories and I am truly greatful for all the days I had with him!
