Here are all the books I loved in July 2019.
Here’s what I’m currently ordering, watching, cooking, wondering, and savoring.
Saturday night found me in the stands of the Rose Bowl Stadium, cheering on the Women’s National Soccer team in their game against the Irish squad. It was an interesting experience for me, given that I’m a dual citizen of both countries, but in reality there was never a question of who I was going to be cheering on: the Americans.
Alternate title: a non-comprehensive list of things that are making me happy right now.
Here’s what I’m reading, enjoying, finding, saving, and tasting (and testing!) in July.
Just one book for June’s post! With everything going on (#1000wordsofsummer, doing a lot of writing, being a human, traveling) I only finished one book. That book was Star-Crossed by Minnie Darke.
Here’s what I read in May, which includes a couple of brand new favorites!
A lovely weekend featuring movies, relaxing, books, and a Betty Who concert!
Here’s what I’m hoping to accomplish in June, along with what I’m looking forward to and what I’m loving.
I recently finished the book Places I Stopped on the Way Home and found it deeply powerful. Inspired by Meg (I mean it when I say that this is the deep, heart wrenching, incredible book I’d like to write one day), I decided to write about five of my own “places I stopped.” I picked a place or a thing or an experience, set a timer for five minutes, and wrote. As I wrote, some themes emerged. Without further ado, here’s an incomplete list of places I stopped on the way home.
I went home to Boston last Tuesday for the first time in almost a year. I’ve never, ever been away from home for that long. I was in Ireland for Christmas and in Michigan in May, so I’ve seen my family a lot, but the last time I was in Boston was in July of last year.
