Life is good…

I spent a good two hours outside the other day doing this:


with her:


Skie loves to just hang out—she’s like a 165 pound shadow if Justin and I are in the yard.

Lately, due to book fund budgetary constraints, I have found myself reading more and more from the public library. I can almost always tear through a novel in less than a week. Since I graduated college, I find myself reading for pleasure more infrequently. I decided it was time to stop watching so much TV and get back to books.

Here is what I have read so far in the past month:

   Deep Dish & The Fixer Upper: Mary Kay Andrews

Mary Kay Andrews is one of my favorite authors. She really can’t write books fast enough for me! She lives in Atlanta and her books are based in Georgia. You think you’re the big time when you read her latest book, The Fixer Upper, and know where Alma, Georgia is!!!!!

She’s even got a little cottage on Tybee Island called the Breeze Inn that you can rent—too cool!


Suck Your Stomach In and Put Some Color On: Written by Shellie Tomlinson

Suck it in

Literally had me laughing out loud as I made my way through it! It is a great read for not only Southern women, but for all women who had a strong-willed Mama who raised them up right!

Go out—read a good book! Send me your recommendations for what should be next!

I know where Alma is ;) I need to get some of her books, she comes highly recommended by several people.

I keep thinking I need to read something by Mary Kay Andrews. I'll add her to my never-ending to-read list. =) I've been spending time outside on my big wooden swing with my little itty bitty reading buddy. Seven pounds of fluff (six pounds before she started eating the kid's Cheerios).

I left you an award on my blog yesterday! =)
