Lately, I've Been...

-Reading this lovely story. I'm a sucker for a good historical fiction novel, especially one that has multiple story lines with interesting characters that tie up nicely at the end. I'm now finished and am hunting for another good read. Any suggestions?
-Craving popsicles. Summer's almost here and this year I really want to concoct some popsicles of our own. Share your favorite recipes!
-Wishing for pretty, feminine, gauzy tops. Isn't this one perfect? Feeling so sad that it's sold out in the red.
-Listening to That Sea, the Gambler by Gregory Alan Isakov. Oh it's good. If you're looking for an album to love, give this one a try. It's not new but that doesn't matter, now does it?

  1. Historical Fiction is my favorite genre. Sally Hemings by Barbara Chase-Riboud is one of my favorites and anything by Tracy Chevalier.

  2. We puree fresh strawberries and make straight up strawberry popsicles. My son eats them for breakfast all summer long. (I have two gallons of freshly-picked berries in my fridge to work on!)

  3. Oh my goodness, seeing this book made me so excited. My husband's teacher wrote it! I would highly recommend The Tower, The Zoo, and the The Tortoise- it fits your description exactly, plus it has a wonderful British quirkiness to it.

    1. Oh wow! It really was such a beautifully written book, Erin. Your husband is very lucky to have Mr. Troy as a teacher. Thank you for the recommendation too. I've added it to my "to read" list. :)
