“Everything was beautiful. Anything was possible. The whole world has been split open like a peach. And these poor people...Were they too old too see it? All they had to do was reach out and pluck it and raise it to their lips, and they would taste it too.” - Lauren Groff, Florida Stories
| The Florida heat is just getting started and I’m seeking shade wherever possible.🌴🌞📚

“ I see this land flowing with books... Widespread literacy. Books everywhere...” - Erika Johansen | Thank you Tonjanika for showing my love of books through your photos and including my favorites. ♥️ They are all beautiful and I felt so at ease even with my awkwardness! | In this photo I’m holding one of my favorite books of all time.

“That's right,' she told the girls. 'You are bored. And I'm going to let you in on a little secret about life. You think it's boring now? Well, it only gets more boring. The sooner you learn it's on you to make life interesting, the better off you'll be.” |
One week until take off and my life becomes extra interesting again! ✈️Can you guess where I’m going? The book is a clue.🧐 (Also, don’t mind my ghost legs. It’s been raining in Florida).

“Carry On...” - My Oxford Year, Julia Whelan | High tea with my British Book Club gals. 📚🇬🇧

My case for reading: Read widely and and read often. Read books you love and books you don’t understand. Just read because by reading you will tap into one of the most fundamental parts of the human condition- empathy. (My PSA for the week)🌱

A lot of people don’t like the rain and yes, it would be great to look forward to a weekend playing in the Sun- For now I will take advantage of the rain and hygge it up, light up some candles, take my time cooking some good food, and reading (and Netflix). 🍃✨☕️

@loveoffering Your art is brilliant and the story behind it is even more beautiful and inspiring. Every time I use the bag to carry my books around I’ll be inspired to dream big as you do. 💛🌱

“(S)He sits in a beautiful parlor,
With hundreds of books on the wall;
(S)He drinks a great deal of Marsala,
But never gets tipsy at all.” - Edward Lear
I took the liberty of inserting a SHE to describe how I wish to live the rest of my days according to Mr. Lear. I guess not all Victorians were that uptight. 🍷 📚
