reading is sexy.

Two things i'm VERY excited about, having to do with something i love-

books & reading. add connecting with fellow bloggers and you can easily see why i jumped at getting the chance to be involved in both:

first, Kateigh's BRILLIANT idea: a Book Swap! hop over to her rock star corner of the internet {poprocks} & photographs for the details but i assure you- you'll want to be a part of it. I'm smitten! here's a bit about it in her own words:

"pick your favorite or one that brings meaning to your life.

to make it even more special,
i want you to inscribe a lovely little note on the inside cover."

oh i'm just in love with her idea. i still pull off books from my library collection just to read the sweet inscriptions once written to me, forever reminding me of why this certain book means that much more. Kate, it's a GENIUS idea! i'm so excited to be part of it.

second, Diana of and this:

the first book is one i actually got during the autumn comfort swap from Melissa of Design Delights. A sign i was meant to join this book club and a great time to dive into this novel.

i'm in love with both ideas girls!

PS: Wedding advice? You bet! I loooove a good wedding, and mine was an absolute dream (but would you believe it was over 7 years ago now?! crazy!) Let me think on it and get back to you.

I've joined the book swap..isn't it an amazing idea?! And congrats AGAIN on your big news, my love. Yes, I completely remember how you were feeling before the big move. Which is why I'm even MORE psyched about the engagement. I guess my advice was wrong-sometimes you need to be fearless in trusting the other person AND the world. Keep me updated about anything and EVERY thing that goes on.
A big girly hug with shrieks of excitement to you.
