this past week has been a blur of my fave spots with my fave people. gin & chats in macs, a coffee & a wrap in coffee mill, pints & weird & wonderful stickers in cassidy's.
also i had been trying so very hard not to gobble this book all up too fast, but in this past week it was bloody impossible. i had it everywhere with me, stealing speedy reads of paragraphs while my drinking mates went to the bathroom, arriving early for friends so i could finish a chapter. even though the magnitude of my impending move (DUB-EDI) compares nowhere near to the journey in this book (DUB-SFO), every page in this wiggled into my nervous little heart and nested there. the writing was gorgeous and honest and cut right through me. it was exactly what i needed. it's going to be scary and strange and new - and those are good things. it'll be an adventure just for me.
t-minus two days.
