Greetings and happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there! This picture popped up in my Facebook Memories yesterday… such a blast from the past! This was 5 years ago…
I’ve had a nice, relaxing weekend with my family all home together again, and we’re going to get together with some of my in-laws this afternoon, so that will be nice.
Yesterday morning I wore my new Boden Melinda dress to our Mother’s Day brunch with the ladies at church, and I got quite a few compliments. I guess people aren’t used to seeing me in dresses!
I have some good news (or not so good… depending on if you already purchased it or not.) Boden is running a 25% off sale for Mother’s Day! And yes, the Melinda dress is included. The code is V6Y5. (I just ordered the navy… I was debating, and with 25% off, I can’t resist.)
Also don’t forget about the Phoebe dress, if you prefer sleeves. I’m not sure if they offer price adjustments or not, but if you already purchased it, you may try calling customer service to see. They don’t seem to have a live chat option.
So I spent much of my time this morning reading a new book I downloaded to my Kindle yesterday, so I don’t have long time to “chat” this morning, but I did want to stop in and say hello.
The Seven Sisters series was recommended to me, and it sounded right up my alley, so I downloaded book one yesterday, and I’ve barely been able to put it down. Sometimes the dialogue seems a little stilted, but overall the story is really intriguing, so I can overlook it. I’m only 20% in, but I think I can recommend it at this point.
I was trying to read A Gentleman In Moscow, which is very well written and definitely intriguing, but after reading it for over a week and realizing I was only 20% in, I decided to set it aside. I rarely don’t finish a book, but it’s one of those that you have to concentrate on, and I’m typically reading while family life goes on around me. It also must be quite long, for me to only be 20% in after a week, and I’m just not sure I have it in me to finish it.
That’s the thing with a Kindle — you don’t realize what you’re getting into because you can’t see how thick a book is or how small the print.
While I’d like to think I’m intellectual enough to enjoy such writing, I have to admit, I really enjoy lighter reads. Maybe I will come back to it, who knows, but for now I’m into this new Seven Sisters series.
There’s not much else to tell, and I need to get moving if I’m going to be ready for church. I hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing Mother’s Day!
