Lazy Summer Reading

I have always had a love for books, since they are such a simple, relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of my daily routine. That said, I rarely have the opportunity to read as much as I would like to; therefore, I have vowed that this summer I will take more time out to sit back and open up a book. I recently checked out these two books at my local library and cannot wait to get started. I grabbed two biographies and, of course, who can resist the new DIY Martha Stewart Weddings! Lots of my friends love the new reading technologies that allow us to take books anywhere and everywhere, but, for me, nothing can replace the feeling of turning each page.

June Is In Bloom

With June in full swing, I am absolutely loving the pretty flowers in blossom. I recently took a trip to The Huntington Library and captured some of the beautiful flora and fauna. These flowers inspire the senses. I would have loved to pick one of these gorgeous flowers and place it in my hair; but, alas, no picking permitted at The Huntington. Sigh.
