good read



I read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society while I was at beach week. It was amazing. Now, I know you don't come here to get book recommendations (I go here and here to get them), but this is one of those books that I just want everyone that can read to read. I plan on passing it off to a friend today whether she wants it or not.

So, if you have not read this one yet, read it. You'll love it.



This scrapbook page shows my friend Marti and Andrew. She came to visit in January for Tess' debut. January was a really hard time for Andrew and his potty training regressed tremendously. In these photos he is sitting on her lap and told her "the pee is coming. It's coming down my leg." She asked, "Should we tell your mom?" and he said, "no." And, fortunately for all involved, Marti thought the whole thing was hilarious. phew.

thanks for the book review! I had heard of this book and thought about getting it. I went to Guernsey when I was little and I like to read a book set somewhere that I can relate to. Maybe a quick browse on Amazon is in order!

Did he really wet Marti?! Or was he just saying it for whatever reasons?

Hi Robyn!
It is so nice to hear from you. I remember Dave well, and I have heard about you and your children from mutual friends (maybe the MacAdams?) I love your blog! You are so creative. Thanks for checking out ours. I would love to meet you and your family for a session sometime. I head to Long Island quite often to visit my parents, so we could definitely visit you and Dave in Brooklyn if you like that idea. Let me know what you think.
