I would say my vanity is pretty limited.
-Julie Delpy

Well, I'm coming out of my funk.
I've decided to start planning my birthday party for next year.
Turning 34 seems depressing to me right now, but turning 35 (in a year) sounds super exciting and party worthy.
I'm thinking a picnic and croquet game with friends sounds perfect. I will wear a pretty summer dress and carry a parasol for pizazz.
We will have to have lots of sparklers to celebrate such a big birthday.
Happy Monday Dear Friends.
p.s. I'm on the hunt for a book to get lost in.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

did you finally finish with the life of ignatius j. reilly? i recommend anything by anita shreve; the monsters of templeton by lauren groff; niagara falls all over again by elizabeth mccracken; brooklyn by colm toibin; and maybe julie and julia by julie powell. have you read the story of edgar sawtelle? would also highly recommend! nothing better than curling up with a good summer book.

I just re-read Confessions of a Shopaholic. It's so much better than the movie, and so cute. Now, I'm halfway through Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, and it is all I can think about -- so intense and epic!

I love looking at your blog, I'm glad things are going well for you. I miss you! I was looking through old letters the other day and found some from you. Keep in touch. You will have to look at my blog.

"I Capture The Castle" by Dodie Smith. I'm reading it just now and loooove it.

Thanks for coming out of your funk.

I like you.

I recently finished reading Quintines by Meave Binchy and it was pretty good.

I also Shadow Spinner. It's not something I would usually read, but it was SO GOOD!
