About Jamie

Jamie is a 30 year old married lady who is in denial that she’s actually that old. When she’s not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, listening to music with oversized headphones and having adventures with her husband and dog.


  1. What what! Yay WEDDING! I need to look up Caroline Herring and Ben Kweller. Everything on your music list is SPOT ON for me. Love me some Lumineers. And Radical Face?! YES PLEASE! 🙂 I’m so glad you’re back and blogging. I missed your face. xoxo

  2. I hadn’t had the chance to congratulate you on your wedding yet, so : congratulations! You look absolutely GORGEOUS on this picture!

  3. Congratulations on your wedding! My mom found your blog while helping me plan my bookish wedding coming up in November.

  4. Hun, you are gorgeous! You make such a pretty bride! And that dress (even though I can’t see all of it)? SO PUUURTY. I know I already tweeted congratulations but…congratulations again! *hugs*

    Sorry to hear you lost your job but then again you don’t seem all that sad about it since you loathed it. I hope you figure out soon what you want to do next, whatever it is I’m sure you’ll do brilliant.

    P.S – I LOVE me some The Lumineers. I now must totally check out those other songs and bands because if your a fan of The Lumineers you must have excellent taste in music 😉
