It's my party and I'll read if I want to...

“…tomorrow was her birthday, and she was thinking how fast the years went by, how old she was getting, and how little she seemed to have accomplished. Almost twenty-five and nothing to show for it.” 
― Louisa May AlcottLittle Women

It's my birthday today, friends. I am officially a quarter of a century old. Hopefully I am still sleeping or perhaps reading in bed. Either way, I took the day off from work and plan to have a lazy, enjoyable day.

This was a long ago birthday when we were newlywed sort of people.
The husband and I often share birthday parties, since our birthdays are
only two weeks apart. Also, that dessert? My mama makes it and
 it is so good, it doesn't have a name.

I shouldn't be the only one who gets something nice today, though. I'm linking up two articles for your literary pleasure. The first is by Emily Wierenga and is perhaps one of the best descriptions of why books are important that I have read to date. The second is Ann Patchett's take on the Pulitzer debacle, because I love her and she is brilliant.

Ok, kids, I'm off to party like it's my birthday. If you have any suggestions for how my bday book giftcards should be spent, please leave me your suggestions in the comments!


  1. Happy Belated Birthday, sorry I missed it on the day! Hope you had the lazy day you wanted :)

    1. Thanks Sam! I did have a pretty lazy day and had the chance to finish the book I was reading.
