Please accept my apologies.
It’s been a few months shy of a year since I last posted and I cannot believe that it’s been THAT long. I can say that there has been a lot going on in my life, which there has, and that I just haven’t had time to sit down and put my thoughts to paper, which is also true. But really, the biggest reason that I have not posted is because I started a Bookstagram, well, really a Booksandwinestagram. Is that even a thing? It is now.
Ever since before I can remember, books were a huge part of my life. Before I could read I would have others read to me, then when I could read, I would spend all my available hours reading (okay, I do like tv also). When I was old enough to drink, I began cultivating my wine palate, and though I’m not a master sommelier, I do know what I like.
Another thing that I grew up with was photographs. I’m not sure what your household was like, but mine (and more specifically every time I saw my grandparents) was filled of pictures so much so that we developed what we called our “picture smiles.” When I was in high school, I took all the photography classes they had, learned how to use a manual camera and develop my own film and photos. Over the past few years my passion for photography (and art) had dimmed, but starting this Instagram page about books and wine has opened that part of me back.
With all of that being said, I’m starting up the blog again. I can’t promise that I will post about every book I read, but I do promise that I WILL post. I’ve always loved writing (it’s why I’m in the book industry), and it feels good to be back!
