I read a book

The art

I read a book, in it’s entirety, in one weekend.  Yes, I Laura, actually read a book cover to cover in a couple days.  My brother loaned me this book well over a year ago and I read a few chapters and life got busy and I never came back to it.  When I was leaving for a quick getaway to Florida I scanned my bookshelves and decided to pick it up again.  It’s called The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. It’s a book told completely from the perspective of the family dog Enzo. It’s got a lot of highs and lows and it’s so fun to read it from the perspective of a silent spectator. I would highly recommend this book, especially to people who view their pets as a member of their family.

It was seriously lovely to get away for a weekend with my best friend, sans children. We walked the beach A LOT (one day we walked 12 miles on the beach….my legs are crazy sore), chatted a ton, spent some time alone (I read, she ran) and had a marvelous uninterrupted time together. This trip taught me a few things which I hope to share in the coming days!
