Weekend reads and unpacking...

It has been a whirlwind week, and I kind of don't believe it's real!

Last Friday, we closed on a condo in a fabulous neighborhood in Boston. We spent Saturday packing, and we moved in on Sunday! We're still in the midst of unpacking, but we're reveling in our new space -- we've gone from a tiny one bedroom to a three bedroom! The baby gets his own room now! Once the place is cleaner, I'll share some photos!

I'm reading The Blue Line by Ingrid Betancourt, and it's like Isabel Allende meets Susanna Kearsley. I just love it so far. It's Betancourt's debut novel, although she's written two other non-fiction books. For those who might not be familiar with her, Betancourt is a Colombian politician who was kidnapped and held hostage for almost seven years. I was captivated by her story and am delighted to see she's dipped her toe into fiction.

What are you reading this weekend?


  1. The new digs sound great. Boston, huh? Lots to see and do there, I bet. Do share pics when you can!

  2. Congrats on your new abode. I am enjoying "Is He Popenjoy?" by Anthony Trollope and Jane Gardam's "The Man in the Wooden Hat." I think both are talented authors.

  3. Wow, that's exciting. I bet you'll be happier. Enjoy setting up the new place!

  4. :) Congratulations again on the condo!!

    As of 20-ish minutes ago I finished The Widow. While I cringed a little at the Girl on the Train/Gone Girl comparisons (wasn't a fan) I would up seriously enjoying this one! Thanks, snow day!

  5. Congratulations on your new home. I hope you love the space and the unpacking and look forward to pictures.

  6. Huge congrats on the new space (and a second and third bedrooms!) Can't wait to see pictures:-)
