Accidental Adventures

Accidental Adventures The holidays are a time when every one seems busy, whether because of celebrations, or the hectic pace that comes through the end of the year’s approach. During the holiday season, even more so than at other times of the year, I feel like I’m constantly planning: planning meals, planning gifts, planning visits, etc. etc. While we’re doing all that planning however, I think it’s easy to lose sight that many of life’s most memorable events—the ones we look back on and marvel or reminisce about—happen by mistake or aren’t planned at all. That’s the case with each of these memoirs, looking back on events that happened by surprise.
Planning getting you down? Why not dip into one of these accidental adventures?
