The Help


Your photos continue to be amazing. It looks like such a good time.  I just packed this morning for our trip to Florida this weekend (belated anniversary trip) and forgot the camera. Awesome. Maybe we'll get a disposable camera and take grainy photos that we can pass off as "retro"?

I've been dabbling in a few books lately, and until recently hadn't been able to settle on one. I put down The Pillars of the Earth and Guns, Germs, and Steel. I just couldn't get into them. GGG is really fascinating, but it reads like a text book, so I was rarely able to read more than a few pages before falling asleep... even on the Metro. So for the beach this weekend, I've brought two books with me that are... quite different. I'm reading Black Hawk Down which has been recommended to me by several people and is timely in a lot of ways right now and I'm re-reading The Help. I LOVED The Help when I read it the first time, am anxious to see the movie, and decided to pick it up again which is something I almost never do. Which reminds me, I need to email DH about making a date to see the movie!

There has been some controversy about The Help that I definitely think should be noted. But I REALLY enjoyed the book and am enjoying it the second time around too. If you haven't read it already, pick it up immediately.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Lady, you gotta use instagram on your phone for your trip photography! I have been using it for a while and love it (anyone else reading this, my name is Blythe75) so look me up! Tons of options to color correct and tit shift your pics!

    Also, have a wonderful time. Just the idea of this trip warms my heart!

  2. ahh, yeah ... that would be TILT SHIFT. (blushing.)
