Book Nook (and a little Music too!)

Reading and listening to music are some of the most pleasurable things in life to me!  There's nothing like getting lost in a story to relax and rejuvenate the weary soul!  Music is the healer of all things and we are constantly plugged into music around the Smith casa:)  Make sure to scroll down to check out our Playlist!  There are links to some of our favorite tunes right now along with some oldies but goodies:)

What are you reading?  
Here's my stack of good reads waiting next to my bed:)

~Re-visiting the Book Thief with my daughter...such a wonderful book ~
~P.S. I Love You..really loved this movie so I thought I'd check out the book~
~The Second Book of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children - Hollow City..read Book One and it was really a great story!  Love the way the author used odd photos to help shape the story!  Highly recommend this one!
~The Fault in our Stars~ very moving, emotional story...reading again:)  Can't wait to see the movie on June 6!  If you haven't read this, please do!

~Playlist~
Loving lots of music these days:)  Here are a few of our current faves....

Whooo's 100?

I am! This is my 100th post!

To say I am astonished and humbled by the incredible support of my blog from fellow bloggers, friends and family would be an ginormous understatement! I am truly, deeply grateful that ya’ll stop by and visit me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

(I had this scheduled to post at midnight, but for some reason, it didn't! I got up to check it about 1:30 am and discovered blogger's mischief! Sorry if you came by then!)

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it! It’s my 100th post and by the time you are done reading it, you’ll probably feel as old and tired as Rip Van Winkle! You know me and my long winded rambley-ness! (....the giveaway is here..I promise!)

So, this is what I’ve come to know about blogging in the last 100 days….

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never k…

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)


A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we?
