Here Lately: An Anniversary, Books, Patience


I've been married to my sweet husband for two years today. We've been friends for 17. I could not be happier. He's a great partner, has the patience of a saint, and the understanding and care of one, too.


I had some new books come into my life by way of a book swap. Jenna rocked my world! I'm super excited to add The Book of Night Women by Marlon James, Black Like Me by John Howard Griffin, Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, and Rat Queens Volume 2 to my stacks! Also, those Albanese gummy bears are SO GOOD. 


On the job front, I had a third interview on Friday, and now we wait. Patience. Patience. 

What are you up to, friends?

  4. Happy Anniversary! My daughter had the same veil, I'm almost sure. And amazingly, her strait and thin hair stayed mostly curled, at least until the end of the ceremony. LOL

    Thinking good thoughts and sending positive vibes up I35 toward you for the job. :-)

    1. Good for her! My hair is naturally curly (straightened and recurled here), and it just barely made it to the end of the ceremony! Ha! Thank you, Kay!

  5. I'll be honest, I was distracted by the Albanese bag to care much about the books (for shame). I went to school near the Albanese candy factory and I miss it so much!
