Book Review: A Gift From Brittany

A Gift from Brittany: A Memoir of Love and Loss in the French Countryside A Gift from Brittany: A Memoir of Love and Loss in the French Countryside by Marjorie Price


My review


rating: 4 of 5 stars
To be honest, I still sometimes judge a book by its cover. (I know, shoot me) At first I thought this was going to be another book about some lady who moves to France, falls in love and blah, blah, blah. It ended up being so much more. The story pulled me in and elicited emotions within me that usually remain dormant. Definitely a book that I fell in love with.

It's my birthday!

I am 24 today. Wow, that sounds old to me. I know, I know, it isn't! But still, it just feels...weird.

Going to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago to see The Harry Potter Exhibit!!!

Age appropriate birthday outing? haha, I think so.

Afterward it is either Heaven on Seven or Grand Lux Cafe. It depends on which I am in the mood for, they are only about a block away from each other.

Hope everyone has a great day!
