YAY for nice days and no more rain! I was taking shelter in the Lincoln Memorial right as the rain stopped and was greeted by beautiful clouds like this.
Over the weekend Andrew and I took our nephews to Kings Dominion. It was tons of fun! We rode rollercoasters, played a few games, and even ate french fries for lunch AND dinner. My favorite rides are the ones that go upside down and I think it’s so fun to scream on the top of my lungs. By the end of the night my throat was hurting.
I have no idea what that has to do with this picture but I took this last night by the US Capitol.
I like to read. This hasn’t always been the case. I remember when I was in school it was my least favorite thing to do. Talk about snooze fest.
But in the past few years, I’ve been craving books. Non-fiction, self improvement types in particular. So, I thought it’d be fun to talk about some of my favorites or books I’m currently reading.
Right before I left to Europe, I started reading A New Earth
by Eckhard Tolle recommended to me by Trey Ratcliff. Talk about eye opening. Geez Louise! I never knew how MUCH my inner most thoughts were due to my ego. Before this book I didn’t even think I had much of an ego. After reading it I can see how some of my actions or thoughts may have seemed like I do.
The biggest things I’ve taken away from this book:
– You can’t take yourself too seriously, things happen for a reason and you just gotta roll with the punches
-My possessions don’t define me
-Flowers are here on earth for no other reason that to be admired and to be beautiful.
If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, check it out on Amazon
If you have any recommendations for me, please let me know! I’m always on the hunt for a good book and I usually just read books that have been recommended to me by friends. I feel like I can trust their opinons more, or something like that.
