Allie finally had some precious time alone. With the upcoming release of her newest album, constant filming for her two television shows, interviews, photo shoots, awards season and not to mention being a single mom of four, she barely had time to breathe, let alone do anything for herself. She had exactly an hour and a half until she had to be home for the kids. And she decided to spend that blissful 90 minutes browsing the local bookstore slowly, a giant cup of hot chocolate with lots and lots of whipped cream nestled between her hands. Currently in the self-help section, vibrant blues scanned books on mourning, a subject that hit a bit too close to home, but that was something very few people realized, even though most of her life was on public display. Not daring to take any of the books off the shelf, she read the titles and authors carefully, committing a few to memory for online order at a later time.
