Slice of Life is a regular update on the latest in my life. This is where I write about my books, movies, tv, food, fashion, family or whatever subjects are on my mind that week. It’s just a little glimpse of my slice.

  • Two words: circus cats.
  • I love this and this post on items to get at Trader Joes. MY favorite item to buy is their plaintain chips.
  • Working on my holiday “to be read” list and love this collection of titles. Typically, these lists contain romance-y books, and those are not really my jam. My list of nontraditional titles for your Holiday TBR is coming soon!
  • The dry winter weather is wreaking havoc on my skin. Who knew dry skin remedies could start in the shower?
  • The National Book Awards was this week. Congratulations to the winners.
  • Weekend plans: Thanksgiving prep, college football watching, and finishing up This Tender Land.
