I'm so excited to be a part of this! I've been missing my favorite book club since we moved so I have such high hopes for this blog! Big kudos and thank yous to Candace! I'm convinced our souls have always been friends, though we've never actually met - yet!
I'm a SAHM with three adorable but busy kids that are 8, 6, and 2 -- bless their hearts, and one amazing hubbers! (You can say anything you want about anybody and as long as you end it in "bless their heart" then it's not mean at all!) Reading is just one thing I do for myself -- to maintain some sort of sanity! I also love to bake (but not cook), play the piano, I've dabbled in quilting and photography, and all kinds of other things, but any chance I get to get out of the house I'll take it! My husband and I are both scuba certified, but now sadly landlocked. We spend a lot of time outside in the summer. This winter is proving to be a long one because I absolutely detest the snow. *shudder* (Erica, I'm sure we're going to get along great!) I'm a horrible clean freak and have fallen completely in love with the steam mop I got for Christmas. That's how I know that 29 is officially old. *sigh*
My favorite job was when I worked at the tiny local library. Everybody knew everybody and I got to cover all the new books and had the chance to read any of them that I wanted to first. I do love the new book smell. I've missed the diversity of my reading since I stopped working there. I will read just about anything, but I do have my limits and I'm not afraid to put a book down when it just goes too far. (Although it does kill me just a little to not know the ending!) I'm very excited to get to know all of you better through all kinds of books!
P.S. Not only to I like these ... and these ( ), I also use way too many of these **! :)
