beach day


I feel like I've been all work and no play lately, and I'm certain it's been waaaay too long since I've been to the beach, so today I'm escaping with flip flops, sunglasses, and a good book. After some quality sunning, reading and relaxing time, I'm going to meet up with a friend on the beach to catch up on lots, laugh, and lounge a little more as the sun goes down. Every once in a while, this is what we all need. Hope you all find some good "me" time this weekend too.

P.S. I'm taking this book with me and can't wait to get wrapped up in a new story.


And here are some others I absolutely LOVE and have recommended lately. What are you reading? I devour books, especially in summer, and am looking for some new material. Any recommendations?

If you're a huge reader you may have already gotten to this one, but my new favorite book is "The Help" by Kathryn Stockton. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone. Really! Enjoy your day!! :)

Thanks for the reading list. I love sitting out on my patio with a book and a glass of wine, nothing better-unless that wine and book are consumed at the beach!

I love anything by Bill Bryson.... have you read Tales from a Small Island....???

Also, I love Armstead Maupin's Tales of the City....

And if you're looking for a nice design book, Rose Tarlow's A Private Home (I think) was a great read....

I look forward to reading everyones recommendations.
