She was a vision in black.
I'm so glad she still lets me fix her hair every now and then. She looked so cute walking out the door this morning with her 'ziggety zaggety parted puffy braids and messy buns' (and soccer ribbons no less)!

Lately I've been spending my time in the young adult section at the library. Pre-reading some of the books and series I think that my daughter may be interested in.
This morning I just finished a book that was absolutely amazing.
The Book Thief
Because I knew absolutely nothing about this book, at first, I was a little dis-oriented and not sure what was coming at me. After several pages however, I realized that the narrator was actually 'death' - speaking in the first person. Definitely a different, (yet surprisingly enjoyable) twist.
If you have a chance to read this book - you should. Poignant, and deeply touching it covers love, loss, and finding family. Enough book report - this one is going into my top 5 books list. You SHOULD read it - I couldn't put it down.
