December Wrap Up and MERRY CHRISTMAS

Merry Christmas my loves! I hope you are all having a lovely day with friends and family if you celebrate.  It’s okay, you can read this post tomorrow.  I’d rather you celebrated! And, of course, if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you’re having a lovely Monday. As you read this, I am at my parents house for Christmas brunch.  Soon enough, we’ll head to my in-laws for Christmas with that half of the family and dinner.  It’s a day off and a day to be with loved ones.  Back to work tomorrow! My books this month have come chiefly […]

The Book of Pearl by Timothée de Fombelle

The Book of Pearl by Timothée de Fombelle

October Wrap-Up

October Wrap-Up

Well my dears, it’s here! October has packed her bags and gotten away from me again.  Every year I feel like I’m chasing the autumnal delights of this month, and I just can’t keep up with it!  It’s my favorite time of year, but it’s also one of the busiest times of year, and it just slips away.  I come out at the end panting like it’s been a marathon but the loot was well worth it!  The leaves are off the trees, the air is getting crisp… winter is just around the corner. Well this month was actually WORSE than the […]
