For Him

I don't usually blog on the weekends (a girl's got to take some time off, right?!), but I couldn't let the day end without wishing my man a happy birthday. If I were cool like he is I'd write him an awesome poem to mark the occasion. But as I am not cool like unto him, I'll play to my strengths and make a list.

Why I Love Him

•He's the reason I get up in the morning. (If you knew how much I loathe getting up, you'd understand just what a big deal this is).
•He's the owner of, hands down, the best smile in the world.
•He writes me poems. He's like, really good with words.
•He takes the prettiest pictures in all the land.
•His voice sends shivers down my spine.
•He thinks my blog is cool (along with the reading habit that fuels it all).
•He's SuperDad. He's got the cape and everything.
•He makes me laugh out loud. At least once every single day.
•He dances with me. Down grocery store aisles, past fountains, in other people's kitchens.
•He took my hand that day and didn't let go.

Happy Birthday, babe. I love you. Three gobs at least.

  2. Aww, I don't think your husband is the only one who has a way with words :-) Your list was touching, I'm wishing for someone who can fulfil at least a few of the items of your lists. Wishing him a very happy birthday and lots of happiness to you both! :-)

Angie's Best Books of 2016

Let's just lay our cards on the table, shall we, and agree that, on the whole, 2016 was an abysmal year.
And I'd just like to personally invite it not to let the door hit it on the way out.
This is me being as charitable as I can possibly be at this point. 
That said, I want to send a glorious shout out to the wonderful books that have come out this past year, and to all the authors (and readers) who have not given in to the anxiety, depression, anger, and fear that I know so many of us have felt throughout the past twelve months (or more). It is the last day of the year, and I have poured all of my gratitude (and hope for a better one to come) into my annual list of my favorite reads of the year. Just 17 this year. Fewer than the past few years, which indicates a healthy dose of necessary rereading in this year that has been what it was, as well as the fact that I just didn't get to as many new releases.

My Year of Georgette Heyer | Book the First: The Convenient Marriage

This is not a drill. I repeat, THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I believe I am, in fact, upon the brink of accomplishing something that I have been meaning to do for years. I want you all to be the first to know that I just read my first very Georgette Heyer. That's right. I actually did it. After years of promising myself and countless others (many of you) that I would do it, I finally managed it! And I can tell that I'm about to dive headlong into a full-fledged binge.

After consulting all of your past comments on which Heyers are your favorites and why (and after some serious counsel from Beth and a well-timed trip to our local Barnes & Noble), I chose to start with The Convenient Marriage. I had no idea it would turn out to contain, without question, one of my favorite proposal scenes ever. The kind of proposal scene that makes you feel like nothing could ever go wrong after it. It takes place very early on, and it made me laugh and sigh repeatedly with delight. I know I will be …
