You read that correctly. Just 9 months after moving from Wisconsin to northern Illinois, Jason, the dogs, and I were on the move again. Our second move in 2017 took us to the St. Louis area. I’m pretty sure we could be classified as crazy for moving twice in one year. But you never know when great opportunities will come along, and we’re seizing all the opportunities we can!
When we moved to Illinois, I rediscovered the joy of the public library. I’ve devoured books ever since I got my new library card.
I set a goal to read 13 books this year, one more book than I got through last year. But thanks to the deadline-driven nature of a library book, I surpassed that goal. Now I’m just excited to see how many books I do read this year.
Here are my thoughts on three recent reads: Travels with Charley by John Steinbeck, Talking to Animals by Jon Katz, and Rising Strong by Brené Brown.
