Soy sauce packets hate me. (… and they don’t seem to like my car very much either) 

So before I tell you the embarrassing TRUTH about why I have brown spots all over my pants (okay… you might have guessed it from the opening sentence), I realized that I seem to talk a lot about me…

Dropping things.
Spilling things.
Breaking things. 

… and occasionally trying to trick my husband into cleaning it up. (shhh, don’t let him in on it. It’s best for us all that way)

So I feel the need to PAUSE here and mention that I don’t consider myself an uncoordinated person. 


Total book nerd? Yes.

Coffee and wine-drinker extraordinaire? *ahem* pardon me while I sip from this coffee mug (Also… it might hold wine)

Hard core Star Wars fan? Little bit. 

But uncoordinated, bumbling klutz? I have no t-shirt that says this (and I DO have t-shirts for the other three interested listed above).

… but maybe that explains all the random bruises that mysteriously make themselves known all over my body.  

… I’ll have to think about that one.

My Point: I only see myself as slightly awkward. But make your own judgements. 

Back to the soy sauce… 

Soy sauce. All over the car. All over the windshield, the dashboard, the center console. All over me. 

Brown spots coating my palomino-colored Ugg’s like brown patches on a banana.

… And I don’t even want to talk about my pants. (but, ladies, it was NOT a good look)  

This is what you get for trying to have a nice dinner with your husband. While parked in a car. Eating Panda out of plastic to-go containers. 

I know. So romantic. This is what 12 years of marriage and “date night” during COVID looks like. 

But I guess it could have been worse. It could have been the Sriracha packet that exploded!

Here’s hoping you have a romantic weekend at home… and by “romantic” I mean READ all the glorious books! 

Hugs to you ❤️ and may your soy sauce packets never burst 😘

It hit me in that moment: Wow. Books are powerful things. They are more than just stories….

They are the friend who distracts you when you can’t take normal life anymore.

They are the vacation days we never actually take. 

They are the calm in the storm.  

When life gets crazy, books are always there. ❤️❤️❤️ (And wine… but those two kinda go together 🙂 

Hope that you too get to sink into a lovely, delicious, 100% scandalous book this week!

Hugs, kisses, and hope you enjoy my collection of stunning book quotes below (meant to give you all the feels only us book-lover will ever understand)
