Water For Elephants


This flu business puts a real kink in my plans to re-group and re-charge my creative batteries. 
I did manage to throw together our first book club meeting last night.
We read, Water For Elelphants by Sara Gruen.


I think that one of the most  important things you can do to be a happier person is surround yourself with amazing women who you admire. 
I've been so lucky in the sassy lady friend department.


I hope you all get a chance to read this book before the movie comes out.
It is a magical book.

love love,
Fritzi Marie
