Happy Friday! I hope this post finds you healthy and happy. It’s been over a month since I’ve posted here and when I look back over my calendar it’s no mystery why.

Happy Friday and happy Memorial Day weekend! Memorial Day always feels like the start of summer for me; does it for you? And it feels unreal to me that summer is actually here – especially this year.

Book Report: Quick Reviews of What I’ve Been Reading

How has your reading life been lately? I’ve heard from some people who are using the extra time at home to read more, and others who are finding it hard to concentrate.
