I have been suffering from major What's Up Wednesday withdrawals so I'm going to join some of the other bloggers and post a Currently post every other Tuesday. Thanks for starting this back up Katy Upperman!

I'm loving my front patio and all the flowers and herbs growing there, wandering the beach and finding sea stars, having coffee with friends and reading with my children.

I've been a bit scattered with my reading but I'm reading Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier for myself and Little Pear by Eleanor Frances Lattimore to my children. I was surprised with a copy of Magonia by Maria Dahvanna Headley from Epic Reads today which caused an impromptu dance party.
 I also have A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas and The Fill-in Boyfriend by Kasie West waiting for me. Happiness!!!

I'm watching Gilmore Girls while I wait for a new episode of Forever. 

Listening to...
I've been listing to Disney Princess Songs and not by choice! My daughter is obsessed. When I pick it's Mumford and Sons or Bastille. Oh and I listen to The Phantom of the Opera over and over. Each time I listen I get more ideas for my next WIP.

Thinking about...
I've been thinking about the story I'm planning to write for JuNoWriMo next month and how to allude to the classic it's inspired by but still keep it original. 

I can't wait for my daughter's dance recital this weekend. She is so excited!

I've been wishing for my parents to come visit. There are so many places I'd love to show them, especially my dad since he hasn't been down here yet. 

Making Me Happy...
Walking in the dark, listening to the frogs.
Stacks of books waiting for me to read them.
Learning the names of the local birds and plants with my children.
Strawberries. Fresh basil. Coffee.


  1. It sounds like you have lots of good things going on. Hope your parents can come visit, and good luck with JuNoWriMo!

  2. I love the sound of walking in the dark. Thanks for sharing!

  3. My daughter used to be obsessed with Disney Princesses (she's since moved on to Monster High -- *sigh*) and I used to find myself listening to the Rapunzel soundtrack even after I'd dropped her off at preschool. Ahh, parenthood. :-) Best of luck with JuNoWriMo! I'd love to do it, but we'll be mid-move and just... Nope. Have a great week, Sarah!

  4. Ooh I like that format! I might have to participate in the future. Isn't spring wonderful? I have been in love with all the things growing in our yard. I will have to cover the little sprouting flowers this weekend though because we are expecting snow! Silly Colorado...

  5. "Currently" is such a great idea. It really gives your followers a glimpse into your days without overwhelming them. Thanks for popping by my blog! I'm looking forward to JunoWrimo, but I have so much to do in prep before it gets here that I'm not in a hurry either. LOL
