My Summer Reading List


I hope to get through all of these and then some over the summer. I just finished The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks and cried!! I am not sure I could see the movie after reading it. Has anyone seen it? I was still on a Nicholas Spark kick so I am currently reading Dear John. I always seem to read his books over the summer.

What is on your summer reading list?

This week Janel's 30 Day Journal Challenge started. I found an old moleskin journal and made it pretty:


Yesterday's prompt was to doodle your name and a little about yourself. I was really nervous to start this. I am not known for my drawing skills, but once I got started I couldn't stop. I am addicted.


I can't wait to work on today's prompt. I will try and post all my pages here. Tonight Poot and I are going to make a gluten free beef stir fry and watch these two movies (It might be a late night tonight but I am going to enjoy my down time with Poot):


Of course while I am watching I will be finishing up the garden tour pillows and working on the family reunion afghan. I swear I am almost done with that thing. I just can't seem to stop. I will admit I went and bought another skein to make it just a little bigger.

Happy Tuesday! Hope it has been a good one!
XOXO

I read the Last Song and cried too!! The movie was so good! And Dear John sparked the Nicholas Spark craze of mine as of late. The Lucky One by Nicholas is super good too!
I'm so happy to see someone else reading a ton of books too!
