A couple things I'm excited for! One not so much...

A few things I wanna talk about but first things first- I hope you're having a FANTASTIC day/night/whatever time you're reading this :)

When I was a kid I always thought that book clubs were for old moms and grandmas that had nothing to do in between their monthly knitting circles meet-ups. As I got older and started falling in love with books I realized that there is something so so special about not only reading books, but reading books alongside friends and getting to share in the whole experience as a group. (Does this sound a lil too cray? Okay sorry...) Anyway, I actually wanted to be a part of a book club! So I joined one in high school but they read books I cared nothing for and were a bit snobby. Nothing worse than the intellectual-snob, right? So I went ahead and had a book club with just me read a million and one books on my own.

But that was then, and guess what I found while reading some of my new favorite blogs?

That's right! A blogger book club! How cool is that!? It starts next month, June. And we're starting off with The Help by Kathryn Stockett. You can click the button or visit Melissa @ A Mile in Her Boots if you want to join us. And you know you want to :)

The next thing I'm excited about is, as a young woman who has struggled with this her entire life, very very special to me. And I'm sure will be special and meaningful for you as well. If you've never heard of We Speak Now it is an amazing non-profit organization that aims to empower young women.

"On May 8th, 2013 25 women bloggers are speaking out against women empowerment struggles."

So Mothers Day is almost here and lo and behold, my mother is out-out-state for the next week. As of now she's only been gone 8 hours and I'm already having withdrawals! I'm so used to seeing and talking to her everyday! But I know she's having fun on her well-deserved vacation. Maybe I'll have her do a post on Mothers Day? Idk she might be busy having too much fun to do that! We'll see...
Take care everyone!

  5. Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    great blog!
