It’s homemade soda season again! Remember this post from last year? Clementines, tonic water, boom.
I ate this soup all week for lunch…it was good, but by Thursday I was having a hard time.
This Tabac scented candle is my new obsession…until I realized it’s a “crackles as it burns” candle…?!?!?!? Who thought this was a good idea!??!
I found my Pagekeeper! I know it sounds crazy…but it makes me read a bazillion times faster?! Finished The Interestings, now halfway through with this Jennifer Close book…pretty fluffball, but I’m having fun with it.
Have a great week all.

This week at work was crazy busy….two words for you: Book Fair. BOOOOOOOOO.
Of course I love that it allows me to have additional funds for my library, I do admit that it is one big pain in the you know what. I tried to brighten each day this week by reading Sleep Like a Tiger by Mary Logue, illustrated by Pamela Zagarenski. I love Zagarenski’s illustrations…they are to die. She also did this book, which is fabulous as well.

I want to ask the question: how is it possible to be bored these days?
There is so much I want to do, read, see, make, eat, drink, watch, that at the end of every day I am left wishing I had a few hours.
Then I get really overwhelmed when I start thinking about all the classes I want to do here…then I would also love to get back into running…then I would also love to cook every recipe on Sprouted Kitchen, Shutterbean, andhere.
PLUS……I would love to plan/go on a vacation, take more photos, more motorcycle rides, blog posts to write, blogs to read, cocktails to make, yoga workshops to attend, and ETC, ETC, ETC, ETC.
I love how accessible things are these days and how much Louisville has changed since I last lived here. There are too many options and I love it…but it kinda makes my head want to pop off…please tell me I’m not alone?!?!
Oh wait…I guess I also have to work too….

While I barely made it, I still didn’t read as much as I’d like and this exact same resolution is going on my list for 2013, but with a little twist.
Having a great morning so far. Drinking coffee with holiday candles & christmas trees. So excited for tonight’s Christmas with my parents, Andrew, and Kaylex (bro and sil). This will include lots of chicken pot pie, cocktails, and presents. However, I did get an early present from Andrew and my Dad yesterday morning:
Pull out shelves for the pantry! I’m ecstatic, they’re perfect!
Happy Holidays all!

After a boisterous discussion last weekend at dinner and a recent tweet from HelloGiggles, I was inspired to pick up some beloved books from my childhood. Re-reading books you loved as a kid is so much fun!
