The past few months have been such a whirlwind. Now in this post-wedding period, I find myself restless and a bit burned out. If I can find time to pry myself away from my guilt over starting thank you notes, needing to thoroughly organize (and scrub down) our place, and a zillion other errands, I would remember that it’s summer! The summer season, in particular, makes me nostalgic. I think about my childhood and family vacations. One thing I always did in my younger years was sit in my backyard and read. I looked forward to once a week trips to the library.

Therefore one of my goals this summer (as silly as this sounds) is to find some free time and read a good book or two or three! The first book I have chosen as my “official summer reading material” is The Wife a novel by Meg Wolitzer. It’s about a Smith College grad (my alma mater!). I think I’ll start there…

Happy Weekend, everyone!! Enjoy yourselves 🙂
