{Today's Letters}

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Dear Timothy James, recently you started writing our date nights on our basement wall to remind us to keep intentionally pursuing one another. Know that your heart has been a game changer for me whenever I carry up loads of clean laundry to fold. Dear Daily Reads, thank you for giving me a reason to crawl into the biscuit early and fall in love with my reading lamp again.You both have been great company this week. Dear Shirley Temple, our 6yr old selves will miss tap dancing with you and Mr. Bojangles in the living room. Tonight calls for a special trip to the store for Sprite, Ginger Ale, and grenadine. Dear Mr. Loerke, your joke from last night: Why can't cannibals eat clowns? Because they taste funny. Reason #282 why boy roommates are the shiz.

Happy Tuesday, brave ones! What good books have you been reading lately?

The dirty life, by Kristin Kimble. You'd love it. Its about a new York city writer while fell in love with a farmer and they start a farm, get married and figure out how to feed members who come to them for a whole diet co op. Amazeballs. I'm also read "no more Christian nice girl" for bible study...and I'm on book 2 of hunger games :)

i just finished The Pillars of the Earth and reread Night by Elie Wiesel. A couple of my all time favorites are A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, A Long Way Gone, and Unbroken. I'll be sure to check out your current reads as I'm always looking for suggestions!

A Year of Biblical Womanhood by Rachel Held Evans, Pastrix by Nadia Bolz-Weber, and Here if You Need Me by Kate Braestrup. All such phenomenal reads, I'm having a hard time giving them up to go to bed!!

I finished Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Anne Burns a few weeks ago. I think I grinned like a opossum the whole time I held that book and cried into my neck at the end. Very good book. I am currently reading Sue Monk Kidd's The Invention of Wings. It's set in 1803 and follows two young girls--a slave girl named Handful and Sarah, who receives Handful as her 11th birthday gift. Sarah hates the idea of owning a person. The jacket sounded interesting and so far, I have like what I've heard. Kidd's other book The Secret Life of Bees was a good one, too. I could talk books from now until Rapture....

I noticed the Blue Bike book on Life in Grace blog yesterday and added it to my Kindle list! I'm reading The Alchemist.

Loved the Notes from a Blue Bike book! I'm still plugging through The Locust Effect and reading Harry Potter 2 at the same time (balance, you know). :)

The Book Thief. It has moved into my Top Five Best Ever.

I just finished "Wild" last week! Definitely a gritty book, but I'm going to definitely buy it for my sister for her birthday... seeing as she now lives in WA and loves to hike. Looking forward to the film.
I too celebrated the greatness of Shirley Temple by watching Curly Top last night, remembering my childhood and thinking of my grandparents. :D

I Just finished Packing Light by Ally Vesterfelt! Loved :) Next on my list is Bread & Wine by Shauna Niequist. I saw them both speak at Storyline Conference and have been so inspired to read their works!
