Nothing makes me happier

Than seeing my family snuggled up together, reading. I LOVE that.
Even though, the minute I whip out the camera to capture the precious moment, this is what I get:

Yes, SonA is showing off his mouth full of raw spinach. Yes, he actually loves eating raw spinach and asks for it for a snack all the time. I fully expect him to be brilliant and support us in our old age.


Anyway, the point is that I love reading. I love that my family loves reading.


I love that SonB will come up to me and sit on my lap forever, as long as I read to him.


I love that SonA told me on Sunday that his favorite part of the day is reading a book with me or his dad.


I love that I get to write for a living, creating new people and worlds and stories for others to discover. I love reading new books that my friends have written, to see how their stories take shape, take life, and fly onto the shelves of bookstores (and then hopefully fly OFF the shelves into your homes).


Reading and writing make me happy. How about you?

That is too precious! Haha! You have a very lovely family! (and I adore that he's a fan of spinach. Too cute)

YES! Reading and writing make me a happy girl! And talking about writing and reading...and buying books...and seeing books I've already read pile up on the shelves...

I've always said my favorite was to spend the day is with two boys, a book, and a blanket. :)

That picture is priceless! I love how crazy my kids get as soon as they see a camera.

And I love reading to my kiddos, and I love that they love it, too!

Your family is just so precious!! How great that they love to read, but I love that they can be so goofy and adorable in the midst of it all. It's heartwarming.
