I am excited to announce that the winner of the Lovely Lemon Giveaway is…
#4 – Beth
Beth shared a recipe for some yummy lemon bars – she assures me that if you like lemon you are going to love her lemon bars. I can’t wait to try them.
Beth – email me your mailing info and I’ll get your lemon tools off in the mail! Congratulations and thanks to everyone who sent me a lemon recipe. I received 50 recipes so I am going to be busy for a while.
My husband, who doesn’t read my blog regularly, commented at dinner last night “You sure have been into lemons lately!” He loved the yummy lemon pasta I made though -recipe on Wednesday!!
Thought I’d take a little break from lemon recipes today to share with you my Spring Break reading list.
We spent four days in sunny Arizona laying by the pool during Spring Break and I had 8 different airplane rides so I had a bit of reading time.
Here’s what I read…
1. Very Valentine by Adriana Trigiani
2. Reality Check by Guy Kawasaki
“The Irreverent Guide to Outsmarting, Outmanaging and Outmarketing Your Competition.” Although I skimmed the first half some great information.
3. Problogger by Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett
A great book if you are looking for information on getting started blogging or improving your blog.
4. In Defense of Food by Michael Pollen
In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto
Pollen’s main message is “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” He talks about the importance of eating real food (vs. processed, manufactured food), eating food that is in season and locally grown. Makes me anxious for our Farmer’s Market to start up!
5. Entre Nous – A Women’s Guide to Finding Her Inner French Girl by Debra Ollivier
Entre Nous: A Woman’s Guide to Finding Her Inner French Girl
When I finished the 3 books I had brought to Arizona my friend Debbie let me borrow two of hers. This was a fun read. I agree with the French philosophy to “Find beauty everywhere!”
6. Things I Want My Daughter to Know by Alexandra Stoddard
Things I Want My Daughters To Know: A Small Book About the Big Issues in Life
I have been an Alexandra Stoddard fan ever since reading Living a Beautiful Life. My favorite chapter in Things I Want My Daughter to Know was the one on “Packing Heavy”. Anyone who has ever traveled with me would not be surprised!
And since I am making a list, I have read one book since I’ve been home that I really enjoyed. Thanks to my friend Brenda for suggesting it.
6. The Wednesday Letters by Jason F. Wright
The Wednesday Letters
A quick and enjoyable read about what being a family is all about, love, forgiveness and redemption.
For those of you who may remember my New Year’s resolution to read 50 books this year, I have read 17 – only 33 more to go!
So what did you read over Spring Break or lately?
