Oh Happy Day!


Last year I did a really awesome one year blogoversary video  (GO WATCH) and giveaways but this year I’m keeping it simple (also because I have a pretty stellar giveaway coming up next week!).  It’s no secret that I’ve got a lot on my plate right now (wedding in August, job stress, moving into our apartment, etc.) but I just really wanted to take a quick second to say thank you! I’m not sure if you all understand how much you mean to me. I know that could sound silly to some but you guys GET me. You like (and sometimes dislike) the same books as me, you comment so thoughtfully and I love our conversations, you laugh lovingly at me when I accidentally eat moldy whipped cream,  you don’t think I’m TOO strange.. you even support my weirdest ideas (book inspired dates? casting my fictional bridesmaids?  The list could go on).  And most importantly — you guys are always there. To talk. To suggest a book. To give me advice about non-bookish things. To laugh with me. To give me a little boost of confidence when I feel down.  I have to say, the people who think this blogging thing is about the ARCS and the publishers..they’ve got it backwards in my very humble opinion. You could pile the ARCS on me and I’d never feel so satisfied as I do when I get to connect with you guys through comments, on Twitter and, for some of you, email/text/IN PERSON. And that’s the TRUF.

Seriously, without putting my overly sappy pants on, you guys rock. You keep me going even though sometimes I think I don’t want to. I adore you guys and  I’m so happy I’ve gotten to share a part of myself with you for two AMAZING years. <333

About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.


  1. Your weird ideas? They’re often my favorite posts. 🙂

    Happy 2 year anniversary!

  2. Aw, Jamie! Even though I haven’t known you as long, I already adore you to bits. Here’s sort of a funny story! I meant to email you gushing about how much I love your blog (a LOT) and how much I enjoyed your writing style but I chickened out. So imagine how surprised and flattered I was when you stopped by my blog the next day & were SO NICE about it. I think I fell over in shock and I still can’t believe it. Thank you for being you and honestly, one of the reasons why the blogging community is so great. I’m sure you’ll continue to do kick ass things! I know I can count on you for having such unique posts with fun, insightful content. Congrats!!

    PS. Is it weird that I’m kind of really excited for your wedding?! I love hearing about it and I’m sure it would be wonderful. I know things can get crazy & stressful but I really do believe everything will work out. I believe in you!

  3. Happy Blogoversary! I love your blog and I hope you keep doing what you’re doing here. So excited for your wedding & so happy that you got your new apt. Fingers crossed in the job dept! Love the pics & graphic! 🙂

  4. Happy Blogoversary! 🙂 It’s been a wonderful two years and I hope you will continue to show us all the fabulous ideas (who ever said anything about weird? 😉 ) that pop into your head! YOU rock, Jamie!

  5. Happy blogoversary, Jamie! I love all your unique ideas! They aren’t weird at all! 🙂
