I’m linking up with Anne from In Residence to share what I’m CURRENTLY celebrating, collecting, gifting, thinking, and trying. Here we go!
I am CURRENTLY:
celebrating: our 32nd wedding anniversary! Our actual wedding anniversary abounded with emotion, not only from deep love for my guy, but also because that’s the day our son and daughter-in-law headed back home to Alaska after being in our local area for a few weeks. Goodbyes stink, y’all! But never fear! We celebrated the next day by taking a riverboat ride on the Savannah River here in Savannah! We took the narrated tour on the Georgia Queen with Savannah Riverboat Cruises. The live narration was really well done! We learned a lot about Savannah’s ports as well as the city herself. BONUS: TWO of the incredibly huge Neo Panamax ships came into port while we were on the riverboat, so we got an up close view of them! After the cruise we enjoyed scoping out the new Plant Riverside district at the end of River Street. Such a fun day!
collecting: a huge list of books on my To Be Read list thanks to Anne Bogel’s Summer Reading Guide! I look forward to this guide every summer. Do you? Anne is the champion of helping us answer the question, “What Should I Read Next?” Check out her super fun podcast and get your own copy of the Summer Reading Guide HERE. I’ve already put a few books on hold at my library, I’ve listened to a couple via Scribd, and I bought one, Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner. For even more great book recommendations, check out the podcast “From the Front Porch” by Annie B. Jones, owner of one of my favorite bookstores, The Bookshelf in Thomasville, Georgia. And then buy books from her!
gifting: myself with a couple of fun home decor items from The Nested Fig in Greenville, South Carolina. Their website offers a ton of great stuff! I recently purchased this darling mirror and the best vase ever known to man! Or woman!
thinking: about where and when to travel. BOY, do we have the itch! Now that we’re fully vaccinated and things are opening up, we’re ready to start planning some trips. I suspect we’ll wait until next year to do anything REALLY big, but we’re hoping to do a special trip within the US later this year. And you KNOW we have some camping trips coming up!
trying: some new-to-me recipes from Kendra Adachi, The Lazy Genius. My family dutifully eats salad every now and then, but THIS salad is a game changer! We LOVE it! And this super simple lunch packs HUGE flavor! Have I eaten it for breakfast? Yes. Of course I have! What a flavor-full way to start my day! And I don’t even especially like chickpeas!
