We had absolutely gorgeous weather for our ride home today, which made for a cheerful attitude.
That is until we hit Charlottesville! On the other side of the mountain, it was all rain, fog and cold! WTH!
Also, I have just LOVED listening to Bossypants!! I got the audiobook because I needed something to listen to while I did shifts behind the wheel, but I didn’t realize how awesome it would be to hear Tina herself do the narrating. She does voices and hilarious whispers and even a whole SNL sound clip!
This book has been a rather inspiring read. I’ve been thinking a lot about how easy it is to take everything in life so literally. I don’t know if it comes off through the screen because I am not a comedian or super funny or anything, but most of the time I’m writing with a very lighthearted, joking, multiple-voices-and-accents tone. I’m a sarcastic person, and I’m not sure I do the best job expressing my tone in writing. In Bossypants, Tina puts into words so many hilarious things I think all of the time. She is not only hilarious, but extremely insightful and down to earth as well. And I absolutely loved her responses to the trolls who write about her on internet sites. So true how petty that stuff actually is. The book is a wonderful reminder not to take life too seriously.
We made it home right before dinner and drove straight to Whole Foods for dinner + groceries.

Unpacking – and editing photos! I’m planning to put a post up with the wedding recap tomorrow.
