What a lovely couple of days I'm having!
I took a half day yesterday (trying to use all my vacation time before year end), so I got to have a long lunch with Tiffany! I haven't seen her since she moved to the UK three years ago. It was fun to catch up and hear about her Euro life.
Then last night my book club did a holiday book exchange. It was so fun! I highly suggest if you have a book club, you think about doing this as well. Everyone brought a book that they thought was really awesome. And then we did a dirty Santa gift exchange. Each time a book was unwrapped, the person who brought it explained why they liked it so much. I ended up with The Raw Shark Texts by Steven Hall and I can't wait to read it! Brooke, the girl who brought it, went to the same college as me (although she's a little older & I didn't know her) and the book was suggested to her by one of my English professors, so I think it'll be legit.
And then today - glorious day - I'm using up more vacation time, so I don't have to go to the office at all! I might do a little Christmas shopping. I might lay around. I might get some fancy coffee from a coffee shop. I might read. I might bake. The day is all mine! Ahhh.
