Friends, I’m at a loss.
I just finished re-reading Gone with the Wind for book club and let me tell you, it’s even better as an adult. All that war stuff you breezed through to get to Rhett when you were twelve is fascinating now.
Rhett, of course, is as shiver-inducing as ever.
Finishing both GWTW and Downton in the same month has been a blow.
So, please help. What should I read next?
P.S. There are a crazy number of pictures of Marilyn Monroe reading. Google it and see. It had to have been a PR directive, don’t you think?
It’s almost the weekend, my lovebugs!
I have a THOUSAND pages to read for bookclub, a horse to ride and banana bread just waiting to be made into French toast with lemon sour cream. My 12-year old self approves.
What do you have planned?

One of my favorite sensations in life is the anticipation that comes before a trip. In the South they call this feeling “journey proud”. Next month we are off to Charleston, SC to attend the wedding of dear friends, I have never been!
Journey proud indeed, I’m daydreaming about wandering the colonnade of Oak trees draped in Spanish Moss and brushing up on historical facts on architectural and garden tours. I just read Gone with the Wind so I’m fresh on my civil war history and feeling thankful to Sherman for not burning this beautiful city (darn Yankees).
I love to land in a new city with my research done, a few must see places and eateries to land on, but then wander the streets with a map to get steeped in the essence of the city.
Have you been to Charleston? Most of our time will be spent celebrating the happy couple so please give me your recommendations of where to eat, drink and wander. I don’t want to miss any gems.
We have a reservation at Husk already, we booked it last year when Bon Appetite named it Best New Restaurant in America. So excited.
But where else?
Sigh. Thanks in advance for your recommendations.
