Banned Books Week

Today is the start of Banned Books Week! September 24th – October 1st. Woohoo!

In honor of Banned Books Week, I thought I should list my favorite banned books. 🙂

  • Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut
  • Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
  • Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
  • Harry Potter by JK Rowling

(This hardly counts as a banned book… in my book. I really can’t understand why anyone would ban this?)

What are your favorite banned books?

Stick it to the man!

Weekend in Charlottesville

Last weekend, C and I took a quick trip down to Charlottesville. We had a GREAT time at the Avett Brothers Concert. We got out of DC as soon as we could after work and made it just in time for the concert.  We grabbed beers (Starr Hill!) just as the show began.

We spent the first half in the front with the young bucks but we eventually moved back a little ways so we had space to dance around. 🙂

On Saturday morning, we headed towards the Downtown Mall.

We strolled through the Farmer’s Market.

We got breakfast at Cafe Cubano, one of my personal favorites.

It was great to be back in my old stompin’ ground.

Enjoy the first weekend of Fall!

Seize the Fall!

It’s officially official! It’s Fall! (Actually, I hear it’s not actually official until the 23rd this year, but who’s counting!)

Fall Leaves

Fall Leaves

I wish the leaves looked like this already! C took this picture of a tree in front of my house last October.

There are so many fun activities associated with Fall. Most involved being outdoors in the crisp air and being around things that grow from God’s green earth. My some favorites include:

Apple Picking

Apple Picking at Carter Mountain Orchard in C’ville.
