It appears that I only update my blog once every 3 months or so. I forget that I have interesting things to say and also convince myself that I don’t. But my life is so much better now. I haven’t thrown any objects at walls in MONTHS. I mean, I don’t remember the last time. Here are a few highlights: bridal shower favors for amy and some beautiful sentences from a book I’m reading.
“He breathed in her hair, the sweet-smelling thickness of it. My father usually agreed with her requests because stamped in his two-footed stance and jaw was the word Provider, and he loved her the way a bird-watcher’s heart leaps when he hears the call of the roseate spoonbill, a fluffy pink wader, calling its lilting coo-coo from the mangroves. Check, says the bird-watcher.” -Aimee Bender
Of course, I was turned on to Aimee Bender by Amy Giovannetti. I get all my excellent reading material and musical suggestions from her. She is a genius.
