Reading: The Working Theory of Love. This book is nothing like I thought it would be. Its about a man who married young and divorced young. He’s rediscovering love through his work with a computer. I’m horrible at reviewing books so here’s the amazon description, “Before his brief marriage imploded, Neill Bassett took a job feeding data into what could be the world’s first sentient computer. Only his attempt to give it language—through the journals his father left behind after committing suicide—has unexpected consequences. Amidst this turmoil, Neill meets Rachel, a naïve young woman escaping a troubled past, and finds himself unexpectedly drawn to her and the possibilities she holds. But as everything he thought about the past becomes uncertain, every move forward feels impossible.”
Listening to: As ridiculous as this sounds, Carly Rae Jepson. I know, I know. But hear me out. I received a free copy of her album and actually enjoyed it. Its my go to on the evenings I’m stuck in bumper to bumper traffic with no end in sight. I was going to post the video to “Call Me Maybe” but decided I don’t want to be blamed for it getting stuck in your head… Hey I just met you and this crazy….
Thinking about: All the changes happening in the next couple weeks. I’ve posted earlier about how marriage won’t define me, but there will be so many changes along the way no matter what. I’m so excited that in eleven short days I get the privilege of calling L my husband, but how do we stay true to ourselves while becoming one cohesive couple. L and I became us because we were already our own individual selfs.
Eating: Its strawberry season here in Oregon and let me tell you, I’ve been eating them like crazy! Even the pooches can’t help themselves. I do not mind feeding the dogs fruit as long as its not in the kitchen or close to the table. When the see us walk into the living room with a paper towel in hand they a sweet surprise is waiting. My excitement matches there’s as they really are amazing. If you are ever in Oregon this time of year, please pick up some local strawberry’s. Your taste buds will thank you.
Watching: Totally missed the band wagon on this one, but Mad Men. Only a few episodes into season two but oh so worth it! Also this last Sunday True Blood started again. I haven’t watched it yet but the anticipation is killing me.
Bummed out on: How friendships change as we get older. Its funny because I put myself out there. My heart is always on my sleeve, but lately I’m learning some people will just walk all over it regardless of my feelings. Being in our late twenty’s I never thought I would be having some of the conversations I have been but I’ve decided to gracefully let go. Its sad, unfortunate, and really unexpected but I guess things happen for a reason.
Loving: This early summer. Normally here in the PNW summer doesn’t arrive until after the Fourth of July. This year we have really lucked out! Last week we had a couple days in the 80’s! Of course I’m writing this as we’re experiencing an evening rain but tomorrow is suppose to be another amazing day with clear blue sky’s. Now if everyone will do a sin dance for us so the 29th is clear and sunny as that would be much appreciated!
