Thanks to the BookBabes

I always knew you guys were awesome, but now I have to admit you may know me better than my own family.

I hope you take that as the compliment it was meant to be.

Our most recent book club meeting was at Holly House and was officially the first party to be held at my mostly-completed domicile. As long as we're not counting the time shortly after having poured the slab for the foundation I took a bottle of booze and sat on the concrete rectangle in the middle of my acre getting hammered, waving my bottle in the air, and yelling "You may now address me as the Land Baroness!" at passing cars.

Yeah, I know you're thinking, "Crazy, party of one", but you shouldn't be so judgey.

The BookBabes came bearing gifts. Who doesn't like prezzies - ANY prezzies, right? However, these gifts were even better than your average housewarming presents because they were absolutely perfect - wine and a pair of bookends shaped like chairs.

Get outta my head, guys.

Emily Dickinson loves the new furniture.

Thanks. You're the best.


  1. We're so glad you liked them! And I really wish I could have been there for the first Holly House party! But hopefully I'll get to come by soon!

  2. Bittner told me about the bookends, so I'm glad you posted a pic! I'm a bit jealous, but I'll choose to be happy for you instead :).

    So, has Bittner talked to you about Readathon?
