Summer Reading

I LOVE books!
I Love READING!
I Love Magazines!!!

I think it’s safe to say that summer has arrived.  School is almost finished, gardens have been planted, bathing suits have been bought and sunscreen has been applied!
So whats everyone reading?
As much as I love hanging out at Chapters I don’t always love looking for books to read.  I guess some days I am still unsure who I am and what I like……it happens.  To be honest I’m all over the place, I like the classics like The Great Gatsby, The romance stuff like Nora Roberts, some thriller stuff if its not predictable, and lately I have been really digging an author by the name of Jonathan Tropper.  I’m just finishing up his book called “The Book of Joe”.  I’m so glad that a facebook friend of mine was kind enough to suggest that I give Mr Tropper a try! That seems to be how I find my most favorite books and authors…through friends suggestions.

That being said I suggest you give Jonathan Tropper a go.  Far as I now he has two books, “This Is Where I Leave You” and “The Book Of Joe”.

Enjoy your summer reading and if anyone has any book suggestions for me please leave a comment!

Summer Reading

Date Night Great Night

ToastandhoneyIts not very often that my husband and I get the chance to go out for a date night, but last night we did.  I was craving some alone time with Matt (my hubby) so off we went to our favorite vegan restaurant  “Rise Above”.   We had to wait for a table which was totally fine cause the food is really worth the wait and the vibe was such a happy one.  We started with a yummy kale ceasar salad that we shared, I had mac’n cheese and he had a vegan version of shepards  pie.  We both finished our dinner with one of their fantastic donuts.

I have a thing for books and tea so many trips to St.Catharines end up at Chapters and last night was no exception.  Matt surprised me with a book I wanted to buy but had on my Ipad already……so I would never have bought it if Matt hadn’t bought it for me.  The book is Eat Pretty written by Jolene Hart.  I was looking at magazines cause I also have a thing for them while he found the book and bought it for me.  Now some would say I am emotional but I say they are 100% right.  When Matt gave me the book I cried it was so thoughtful and kind!

It might be worth mentioning that my hubby just started driving for the first time in his life and this was our first date where he was able to take me somewhere!

Maybe we should have more nights like these…..
