As if I needed another reason to love my local library. Beyond the fact that, you know, you can check out 50 books in one fell swoop — which is craziness to me! — they have a gratitude wall with, like, Post-Its and pencils, and you write what you’re grateful for and pop it on the wall. Of course, being the list-loving makeup enthusiast that I am, I had to add my own special flava and give a shout-out to concealer, hello!
Because among all of the things I’m grateful for — the usual: family, health, a roof over my head, a churlish tabby cat — concealer has been saving my life lately.
I’ve been tossing and turning at night. It’s true! Part of the reason, though, and this is my own fault, is that I’ve been staying up late to read.
Not because I checked out 50 books at once, no, but I did check out Cocoa Beach, the latest book by Beatriz Williams (she’s a historical fiction writer who’s written several books I’ve enjoyed, including A Hundred Summers, The Secret Life of Violet Grant and Along the Infinite Sea). Of course, as usual, I started reading it way past my bedtime and couldn’t put it down.
I’m eternally grateful for books. And for lists. And I’m grateful for things like the Gratitude Wall at the library. 🙂
What are you grateful for today?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
