It has been a hot second since I've updated this blog.  Okay, actually a lot longer than that.  The picture on here is still my graduation photo from law school and that was SEVEN YEARS AGO!  Outdated, yes, but it is a great photo so I'm leaving it.  I don't even practice as an attorney anymore, but still use my degree daily, thank you very much. 

Life has changed immeasurably.  I have a beautiful daughter now and she takes up the vast majority of my time. I have a wonderful new job that I adore because I get to work from home.  And, yes, I really do work hard even though it is from my stand-up desk in our office instead of downtown.  Life is grand and I have a lot more time to read than I thought despite the lack of train commute.

I set a reading goal this year for 24 books based on my dismal total last year.  I thought I would have a lot more time to read with a newborn, which was not my reality.  I've already blown this years' goal out of the water with 40 books and I'm trending toward 60.  A solid total.

I'm looking forward to using some time to reflect on my reads this year.  They have been varied and interesting and I'm sure my sweet husband would rather I talk about them on here than to him.  "Jill, I don't want to hear about the bee book anymore!"  You know how it goes.
