The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman This is the book that my Book Club Book Swap buddy sent me for September’s read. My swap partner was Monique of Life’s Little Vignettes, and I was really happy with her choice. I have a pretty long to-read list on Goodreads, and I’d forgotten this particular book was on there. I also went through her to-read list and found two books that I love, so sent those to her. All around, a fun time. Thank you, Monique, for a great swap! Now for the book: This was a great read. It takes […]
Right now, I am… enjoying the two new music albums I got this week, the new Ben Folds Five and the new Mumford & Sons. It’s rare that I buy new music, but both of these were worthy causes. waiting for the UPS truck to deliver the long-sleeved stock shirts I ordered for my shop.

The color palette of this outfit in general is happy-making. I feel like autumn incarnate. This week is going […]
Fun video of the week: This is what happens when a seagull steals your videocamera while you’re trying to film a sunset. Chelsea’s recipe for banana bread looks yummy.

I might have to try this fun corkboard DIY from Melissa. 32 Signs You’re Dating a Keeper. Pretty spot-on, I think. One of the most beautiful things I’ve seen recently: Vanilla Garlic : The Wedding. How to Give a Great Compliment. Some more great advice from Yes & Yes. I kind of want […]
