Graduation day is here! But a special guest almost ruins the event. Luckily, Mrs. Connor's class uses all the skills they have learned in the first grade to save the day!

I haven‘t been on Litsy much over the past week or so because I was out of town for my little sister‘s college graduation! I am a very proud sister! 😄👏🏽❤️

On the book related side of things, despite being out of town for a week, I‘ve actually managed to get some reading done. I finished Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and have gotten about 25% into Sadie. I usually don‘t get any reading done on trips, so I‘m quite pleased with this.

AmyG Congrats 🎉. I love graduations. 8mo

So not exactly book related but I graduated from the library leadership class I've been participating in for the last 10 months. Bittersweet moment because I couldn't attend due to moving and being hugely pregnant. Still proud of myself for actually getting through the class. Here's a picture of my mentor and FL state librarian Amy Johnson letting me be a part of of the festivities!

It was a busy week preparing for my graduation last Friday! It was a great day, followed by a fun evening! I had a literary themed party after the grad ceremony for my friends and family. The bottom two pictures are the two displays I made for the party. The picture on the left holds a few of my copies of Jane Austen collections and Charlotte Brontë‘s Jane Eyre. The other picture is of some of the novels I read throughout university ??

I haven‘t gotten in a lot of reading time today as we went to a #graduation party and the Tampa Bay Lightning game is about to come on. I‘m sure I‘ll sneak in some reading time- but first I have to figure out my next read as I finished a good cozy mystery last night. I always find picking my next read to be so hard!

tpixie Pretty!! 2y
