My New(ish) Tattoo!

I don’t know why the hell I forgot to post this back in April when I initially got it, but I am now the proud human canvas of a book nerd tattoo! It says, “I am the heroine of my own story.” It’s just a daily reminder that I’m the main character of my own life 🙂

Quote of the Day: Danielle Wood

“Faye’s giggle is one of the things Tamsin likes most about her. It is a delighted, girlish giggle, and far from being at odds with her old woman’s face, it gives purpose to every crease. When Faye giggles, Tamsin does too. She has never known anyone to approach death so cheerfully, as if it were just a thing she had never got around to doing before.”

-Danielle Wood, from Rosie Little’s Cautionary Tales for Girls
