An unnecessary rule

Those close to me are probably familiar with a common complaint – I’m part way through a book, and I simply cannot stop talking about how bad it is! Their response is always the same – Why don’t you stop reading it? Duh. Of course. Why didn’t I think of that? Because that never occurs to me. And I never follow through on actually quitting a book. There’s a lot of chat online about #DNF (Did Not Finish, for the olds out there like me), but I’ve never had a stack of books sitting around that I decided I...

Happy New Year!

Happy 2016! I cannot tell you what an eventful year 2015 was – it was a roller-coaster in so many ways. I am so much happier and healthier than when it began, and when I look back over the year, I see so many amazing people who helped make that happen. So a thank you to everyone who has been a part of my life in 2015 – and that includes all of you! I look forward to the year ahead. I can’t yet see where the year will take me, but I imagine it will be full to the brim with love. If you haven’t yet, please take our 2015 End of Year Survey – it’s going to help us decide what to prioritize in the new year! Best wishes for the new year....

Favorites | December 2015

I’m sure this is true of a lot of people, but December was a busy busy month this year! It always feels like every year there are more things to do and people to see, and it just becomes a mish-mash of exhaustion and joy. It’s always a fun time though, and this December was no exception – I had a lot of things on my favorites list to share with y’all, but I’ve pared it down to just these few things: NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien. I received this lip stick as part of the Sephora birthday...

Book Review | Moon Called, by Patricia Briggs

This was a pretty shocking departure from my regular reads. Most of the time, I spend my reading hours with classics or popular literary fiction. I have a taste for re-reading books I love, or digging into my never-ending #bookqueue (check it out on goodreads). So when I picked this up, it was a bit of a departure. A fantasy series that includes werewolves, shape-shifters, and vampires? Not my typical #bookqueue material. Patricia Briggs is a local novelist to the the Tri-Cities area in Washington State, and set her Mercy Thompson series in my old hood. There’s just something very...

Book Review | Furiously Happy, by Jenny Lawson

There are some books that you just know are going to be special to you. I knew that when I picked up Jenny Lawson‘s first book, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, and I knew it the moment I read that Lawson was working on a second book. Yet I was hesitant to pick up Furiously Happy. When Let’s Pretend This Never Happened launched, I had it pre-ordered and devoured the whole book within days of it showing up at my door (thanks Amazon!). But when Furiously Happy debuted this past fall, I held off. Despite enthusiasm for Lawson, and for what...
