The TBR List: May 9

The TBR List: May 9


Today is my sister's graduation from college! She might find it embarrassing if I gush about how proud I am of how much she's accomplished, grown and learned in the last four years. I probably shouldn't. Oh wait, I think i just did. Safiya, I hope this day gives you the biggest high five you've ever gotten. Ever. I love you.

The wonderful and overwhelming thing about this time of year is how many graduations, weddings, engagements and other celebratory/life-changing events are happening. It's so symbolic, isn't it? Spring, rebirth, a new leaf (except here in Chicago where we still don't have many leaves). I don't have much more to say about this. I'm just emotional and happy and I want to acknowledge the greatness that is today.

Here are some links. Enjoy.
