Welcome to my blog. Take your shoes off, sit a spell?


Hello all!
I want to begin to view this blog as more of a way to document my life, not just my outfits.
I realized that I've been doing this on instagram and (now vine) for awhile now and the blog seems more like an afterthought. So rude to my blog. It deserves to be loved by me and it will once I treat it how it should be treated. I also miss interacting with everyone here. I didn't realize that disabling comments would make it feel so shut off. I don't like it. Sooo, I will open up my sensitive heart once again and enable them. :)

In a way, I consider this my first post. I posted this photo on instagram and realized I couldn't say all I wanted to say about it. Then I realized that expressing myself is supposed to be the point of a blog. Lightbulb!

I always hoped and prayed for a little girl of my own. I also hoped and prayed she would love to read. I'm tearing up right now thinking about how much joy books have brought me since I was a tiny girl. When I was old enough to read Nancy Drew, all bets were off. I snuck a flashlight under my covers so many times and drifted away into Nancy's world of ordering cinnamon toast in hotels and solving harmless mysteries. I then devoured every Boxcar Children, Forever Friends, and Babysitters Club books as I could find. It's such a precious part of life to me.

We have been reading to Goldie several times a day and seeing the wonder and magic on her face melts my heart. I will never really grow up because I get such joy out of childish things....but seeing things through a child's eyes for the first time is absolutely indescribable.

I can't wait to introduce her to every book I loved as a child/young adult and also to new books that she can have as her own special memories. She currently can't get enough of the Berenstain Bears.

Life is so beautiful sometimes that I could just burst. I love my little bookworm.

Ok, I promise to give this blog the attention it needs and to share more of my life with you.
Be sure and let me know if there's anything special you'd like to see.

What were your favorite books growing up?

XO, Coury
