Reading: I read two books on our honeymoon…”Americanah” and “The Fault In Our Stars“. I really enjoyed “Americanah”- it was an interesting discussion about race and immigration. I highly recommend it if you haven’t read it yet. I loved “The Fault In Our Stars”- I obsessively read it the last few days of the trip. I actually finished it on our flight home and sobbed in front of many, many, many other passengers.. What can I say? I’m emotional. It’s a moving, funny and thoughtful story narrated by a sixteen-year-old cancer patient named Hazel. Sounds terribly bleak, doesn’t it? But really it’s not. Upon our return I found out it’s been turned into a movie that comes out June 6th. Winning.

Thinking about: Rachel & PJ’s wedding in Palm Springs this weekend!!!! As many of you know Rachel and PJ are some of our closet friends so their wedding is a big deal in our lives. It’s kind of like getting married again without the stress! So we are off to the desert tomorrow for a 3-day celebration. I’m starting to feel like I am a professional traveler.

grateful for: The opportunity to take a month off to travel with Brian. Traveling feeds my soul and I am grateful that it feeds my husband’s soul too.

Loving (in no particular order): the warm weather, the feeling of summer in the air, my Bali tan, my hot pink nails for Rachel’s wedding, my husband, my mama, the treasures we brought home from our trip, morning walks with Frank, the fact that one of my best gals is getting married this weekend and two others are welcoming baby boys soon, taking long baths with pretty smelling salts and magazines

favorite quote of the week : “All that we are is the result of what we have thought” – Buddha
