TGIF!

Blythe-
So glad the rain held out and you got to see your gal! I can't believe you can do that every Wednesday. What a treat!

Are you ready for the weekend? Jeff and I are headed to Louisville to celebrate my Dad's birthday, a big one... ending in a zero. We've seen my parents several times since the holidays, but haven't been to Louisville since then. And after 6 months, I get to see their pup Macaroni! I'm so excited! What are you up to?

Since I still have to pack (hehe), I'm gonna keep it short, but I gotta tell you about this book I finished last night. You gotta read Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese.  My Mom was reading it in Roma and couldn't put it down. It's pretty epic (think World According to Garp) but I loved every minute. The New York Times didn't love it, and they had some legit criticisms, but I think sometimes reviews don't account for how pleasurable a book can be to read.  The San Francisco Chronicle did love it, you decide. SO... pick it up soon. I highly recommend.


Love,

PS... I picked up this skirt last weekend on sale at Anthro and LOVE it. I wore it with a black silk blouse, brown woven belt and black wedges to work this week. YUM to the E. (If I do say so myself).
