A Visitor

We have been dog sitting our friends' dog all weekend. She's a little yellow lab puppy named Charlotte, and she is so cute!

Bailey and Charlotte waiting for us at the door:
Charlotte found a cozy spot when I was changing the sheets...
Look how tiny she is in Bailey's bed!
And lastly, my lovely Valentine's Day flowers from Michael. I love them!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I am already obsessing over new Spring clothes. Not good, considering it snowed last weekend.

Trina Turk has long been a favorite designer of mine. Look at these beautiful items for this Spring:

Recent Reading

As I've mentioned before, I am an avid reader and I absolutely LOVE reading. Not only do I enjoy reading, I think that it substantially increases my vocabulary and improves my writing. I'm a very fast reader; I usually average a book every two weeks. Thus, I am constantly on the look-out for new books to read! Here are a few of my recent favorites:

South of Broad by Pat Conroy (probably my favorite author):

The Help by Kathryn Stockett:Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah:

Next up in my queue is The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory:
Gregory wrote The Other Boleyn Girl, which got me hooked on her series about the Tudor Monarchy. I am a history junkie, so these books have kept me occupied for a while!
Do you have any good book recommendations? Please share!
