Finding joy, reads

Blog Inc. party

To celebrate Oh Joy!‘s new book, Blog Inc., we hosted ourselves a little blogging party in Heather’s cottage kitchen, got out our mini notebooks and worked on our blog outlines and goals. We even wrote up a creative brief for our blogs {it’s funny to be talking about my blog and writing a blog post at the same time}. It was a very productive night of food, planning, dessert, discussion, Christmas music on the record player, hot chocolate and ideas! {One Pretty Place – we wished you could have joined us!} It’s our hope to keep focused and have fun with our blogs. . . so look out 2013. . . we’re ready!

Do you have a creative brief for your blog? If not, I’d be happy to share our template with you :) No matter what, you should read Blog Inc. It’s a quick read {I read it in 2 days} and will instantly inspire you!!!

Summer reads

Summer is here in central Cal and I’ve got my reading list ramped up. I’ve only purchased a couple, the others have been sitting on my shelves, patiently waiting for me to read them.

50 Shades of Grey – powering through this for the sake of the two groups of ladies I’m reading this with. Let’s see if it gets any better.

Games of Thrones – reading with a fellow Harry Potter enthusiast. Already two chapters in and very intrigued! Heard the HBO show is pretty enthralling, too.
The Time Traveler’s Wife – I’ve seen the movie but have been dying to read the book. Heather says it’s life-changing.
The Olive Farm – a memoir I picked up in Santorini when I book swapped at our villa. Brought it home all the way from Greece so might as well read it!
Chocolat – another I’ve always wanted to read.
What are you reading this summer?  Please share!
