Hello, Friday.

This week has been a busy one.  Every spare moment was spent reading a book, called The 19th Wife, which was supposed to be read over the course of two months, but I chose to read it over the course of one week.  A little lengthy, but completely worth it and a book I'd highly recommend.  Very well written, unique format, fast read, equally fascinating and disturbing book about the mysterious world of polygamy. 
Most definitely made for a "spirited" discussion at last night's book club dinner.  Mix a group of sassy, sophisticated, savvy women with a book concerning religion, marriage (plural marriage, none-the-less), sex, tyranny, MEN, murder - and a little (or a lot) of wine... and let's just say that the topic of conversation is limitless.  All 'lets-not-get-too-deep filters' turned off -- just the way I like it. 
But thank God for the wine. 
And for monogamy.
. . . 
On a completely unrelated note, I will be printing and framing some pictures (a start in my DIY journey) this weekend, and would love your opinion. 
Which image do you like better?

Thank you for reading my blog and offering such funny, witty, thoughtful, and inspiring comments.  I can't tell you just how much it means to me.  Have a lovely weekend, and I'll 'see ya' on Monday :).


  1. I like the second one best. Have a great weekend! (Oh, would you recommend your recent read?)

  2. Stephanie-

    Yes- definitely, and I added this on my post too!

    Thanks for your opinion, regarding my question.

  3. I love this post and laughed and agree with you, thank God for monogamy, and wine!
    Happy weekend!
    Love those pics!

  4. I depends on what size you are printing. More than likely, it will crop the photo some and you'll lose some of the key parts of that bottom image. So, I'd have to go with the first.

  5. Kim-
    Is there a size I could print it that would lessen the cropping? If only I could do a 're-do' on that second image!!

  6. Oh I think I like the second one better b/c the white flower is bigger. And, wow this book looks quite interesting. I love new book recommendations...now if I could just find some time to read more. hope your weekend is off to a great start.

  7. I think I vote on the 1st one, but they both look

    And that sounds like a book I would love. That will be on my list of books to read!

  8. Your book club sounds like the perfect way to stay sane during a stressful week! And thank goodness for the wine, haha! So glad Ryan's home and you two can spend some time together this weekend. I love the weekends when I don't have any plans, it feels so relaxing. And your photos are amazing, Torrie!!! I love them both, they're so artistic and would look fabulous in a frame! I'm maybe leaning a bit toward the second one, but I really love both. You're so talented! Let us know how it goes! Have a wonderful weekend!


  9. Man, photography is just not my expertise! I had chosen the first photo then came and read that everyone's going for number two. I would say go with the expert opinion, or really whichever one speaks to you best.

  10. oops i'm late but i really like the 1st one. you should take a pic of your diy project and show us!!

    ~miss ya!!

  11. My mom and I just watched the movie "The 19th Wife" about two weeks ago. It was an interesting movie and because of that I wanted to actually read the book. How funny.
    I like the first picture the best.
