What I’m Listening to: Just What I Needed by The Cars
Happy Easter! (April Fools!) Isn’t this rose pattern pretty? When I saw it I knew it was going to be my Easter dress. There’s something so spring-y about it! Of course I couldn’t not do a statement shoe, but I wanted to look outside the typical white Easter shoes. These 1980’s inspired red patent leather pointed toe heels were exactly what I was looking for. (Try saying that 5 times fast!)
What I’m listening to: Somebody’s Baby by Jackson Browne
The leaves are finally turning down here, turning nature into a splendor of color that the rest of the country experienced 4 months ago. There is no better feeling than getting up in the morning and going to enjoy the outdoors. After all, “The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.” – John Muir.

Almost to Thanksgiving!
Aren’t they neat? These books have been in my family since late 1800’s, early 1900’s. They are school books, and let me be the first to say that it takes concentration to read even the elementary spelling book. It really does show how much a language can evolve, even in just a 100 years.
Anyways, the books include a trigonometry text, both Shakespeare’s Macbeth and his Julius Caesar, Kingsley’s Westward Ho!, Emerson’s essays and addresses and the aforementioned spelling book.
Having history so close you can touch it is really pretty amazing, especially when that history involves your own relatives. 😊
On an unrelated note, tomorrow I will be (hopefully) posting some pictures of my book’s new cover shoot!!
