  2. Spectacular hair!

    btw, Angieville followers, notice the picture on the wall in the background--those are 4 generations of mothers and daughters. So, so cool!

    I'm so sad I didn't do that with my grandmother, mother, and daughter when I could have.

  7. That is a WICKED Rapunzel dress. Wasn't your daughter Cinderella last year? It's good to know your children are good and proper Disney fans!

  10. Thanks so much, guys. They had a great time and I have such a fun time on Halloween with them.

    Sally, good eye. We took one on my side as well when Piper was about 10 months, and I'm very glad we did.

    Allie, my husband is a photographer and so I benefit from his excellent skills & equipment. For the top two shots he was using his Nikon D700. The bottom one of the braid I took with my iPhone. lol.

    Lizzy, you're absolutely right. She's been a princess two years in a row. Although she tells me very emphatically that next year she's going to be Ahsoka from Star Wars. That's my girl.

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…

Update | Real Life

I felt like it might be worth writing a very brief real life update here. If just because it's occupied so much of my mental space recently. And, of course, because whatever is currently occupying large swaths of your mental space plays a not insignificant role in your reading life and which book you reach for at the end of any given day. So.

I have worked at the same job since four months after this blog began. Until a week ago, that is, when I packed up my bags and left to start a brand new job. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around that bare fact. First and foremost, I am incredibly grateful and pleased to have this new job. It was time. In fact, all throughout my job search, that exquisite quote from the wonderful Mo Willems ran on repeat through my head,
If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave. The position I had served its purpose very well. It was what I and my family needed for that period in our lives. But at this new point in my life, it had b…
