Weekend Wrap Up...

 touching moon jellies...
our anniversary cards to each other 
deal with food, typical.
the perfect day for a stroll along the water...
finished my reading list for the month, trying to
squeeze in one more, what are you reading?
wanted to stay near the jelly tank all day...

Friday Morning

Good Morning, how is everyone this week? Mine has been packed, between a few after work events, recording book discussions (we're releasing two podcast episodes this month) I'm looking forward to the weekend, especially this weekend. My boyfriend and I will be celebrating five years of being together, I can still remember where and when it all began. I remember being incredibly nervous walking up to him after work one day to hang out outside the library, the rest is history. I hope you have a lovely weekend, see you all next week! 




this week's favorites...





Needing a beach day in the worst way. I can't believe it's been close to a year since the last time I was at the beach. How's your summer being going? Hopefully it's not as hot as mine!

Leading Ladies

Five Things You Should Know About Stevie Nicks: 

1. Both Nicks and her beau Lindsay Buckingham attended San Jose State University, she majored in speech communication and planned to become an English teacher. However she dropped out of college the semester before graduation.

2. She opened for Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. 

2. Her addiction to animal crackers is so bad she has to tell people to hide them from her.

3. She's surprisingly a huge Twilight (you know the books by Stephanie Meyers) fan!

4. Stevie has a black-leather massage chair that she bought for a tour in 2003 that travels with her everywhere she goes.

5. Nicks appeared on American Horror Story as a witch version of her own self, so it’s still kind of hard to imagine her not practicing witchcraft.
