Real and rare moment. Sat down and had breakfast after getting the Littles fed and squared away and continued to read my book. It’s been a very long time since I’ve read a story I looked forward to returning to every time. Maybe it’s the picture she paints of a familiar , maybe it’s remembering what it’s like to be young and profoundly blessed with I didn’t fully appreciate. Ruth Reichl’s Billie from is a plain girl living a marvelously colorful life and she has no idea…yet.
