The Book Fair




My dad never said no whenever I wanted a book, ever. I hope to always be able to do the same with my kids.

We made quite a stack at the school book fair. I'd turn our walls into a library if I could. Nothing but books. For now they are just in stacks all over the place and I love that, too.


So, we're officially Oregonians now. At least in my head I think that because we've been here a whole year. It feels like we've always lived here, this little perfect life. Funny how quickly you heal from the struggles to get to your happy place when you get to your happy place.

I am busy. A really fulfilling busy of school talent show directing, play rehearsals, work, book club, and having friends over for coffee and Mexican hot chocolate and snuggling on the couch. Yes, I have friends that snuggle. And I am not talking about my kids.

So busy I can hardly find the time to read this month's book club selection. Which looks like this:


and when we were at the bookstore went a little something like this: "Molly, look at the book we chose for book club! We have to pick a different one. It's 748 pages!" and she was all, No. We are reading it.

And so I finally carved out a couple hours to read today and here I am. Taking pictures of the book. I'm on page 12.



Oh, and I just found this photo on my camera and remembered I wanted to share it... the neighbors behind us trimmed a bunch of trees and now this is my view of the sunsets resting into the ocean from my bedroom!

Ok, back to reading.

  3. i agree living here is a dreamy little life of simple things that all add up to more than I could ever ask for. I would rather be here than in a big city although I love going to visit big cities once in a while! Coming home to our little town is always a happy thing. Jade is growing up happy, in nature and no traffic jams :)

  5. "Funny how quickly you heal from the struggles to get to your happy place when you get to your happy place." I want to print this out. Currently on a journey to get happy and that place is on the west coast too. :)

  7. How was the book? Was it worth all 748 pages?

    Side Note: I've always wanted to be in a book club.
