An American Marriage by Tayari Jones.
I was super excited to hear of Oprah's newest Book Club pick and just put this one in my Amazon cart.
an excerpt from her website reads:
Newlyweds, Celestial and Roy, are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive and she is artist on the brink of an exciting career. They are settling into the routine of their life together, when they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined.
Also in the que:
China Rich Girlfriend the 2nd in the trilogy by Kevin Kwan on audible.
A Million Little Ways: Uncover the Art You Were Made To Live by Emily P. Freeman.
I also I finally finished up A Little Life (a bazillion pages, but worth the read) by Hanya Yanagihara
The Next Right Thing by Emily P. Freeman
I'll admit, I was a little hesitant to jump on board with adding this podcast to my rotation. I think it had something to do with comparison (me to her), which is exactly what this podcast aims to stamp out. She speaks much truth about faith and our nature as women to bully ourselves with standards that aren't of God, who already thinks we are wonderfully and beautifully made.
we got a couple Google Mini's as gifts for Christmas, so I now always have some music playing softly, loudly, or wildly in the background. Listening to the Lauren Hill Pandora Station as we speak..
The Royals on Netflix
Ever since Megan Markle got engaged to Prince Harry (my favorite), I have spiraled into the depths of all things "Royal Family" I'll admit, hubby and I woke in the wee hours of the morning to watch the then Kate Middleton wed Prince William, and I also remember vividly the tragic tale and loss of his mother Pincess Diana .I re-watched season 2 of The Crown. And then moved on to The Royals which details all the deliciousness of the marriages, babies, affairs, and even the pets of the elusive royal family.
I am determined and need to be fully versed on what Ms. Markle is getting herself in to (just in case she needs some advice):
Next up on Netflix: The Royal House of Windsor, Elizabeth at 90, Diana: In Her Own Words, Prince Phillip: The Plot to Make a King
** also slightly obsessed with Megan Markle's style and have since created a StitchFix board on Pinterest full of some of her recent classic and modern looks. #SorryNotSorry
