From the very first date Liza and I went on, we have been reading together. We read the same book out loud to one another sitting on a beach towel at Singing Beach.

We have continued to read together on road trips, at night, sometimes for school and other times for fun.

This year we have decided to set aside time each week to sit by the fire and just read with one another.  We move the small couch right in front of the fireplace, grab a warm cup of tea and turn down the lights.


We are currently working our way through the kindle version of The Golden Compass. Not a great literary work by any stretch, but the time we get to spend together has been wonderful.

In honor of our fire readings, we have 2 little books on our mantle, can you find them?
