1. I loved Eleanor too! The author was recently featured at a talk and book signing in my area. Unfortunately, I was traveling and couldn’t attend but the rest of my book club did and said that the event was outstanding! I borrowed Eleanore from the library so I had to give her back, but she will remain in my heart… quirks and all.

  2. Christie, Great update on your summer bucket items. I need to do my own…. where is the summer flying away to? I’m putting Eleanor on my reading list! Noted a Brene Brown… I’ve heard of that author….have you read others? Which should I try?

    • Thanks Pat. I definitely recommend Eleanor for fiction and anything by Brene Brown for nonfiction. You might want to start with The Gifts of Imperfection. The others build on that one; although any one of her books can stand on its own. Happy reading!

  3. You’re doing great, Christie! I love the photo of the green rolling hills and the smiles you and your hiking friends had. I hopped over to Allison Task’s site. Looks like you’ve got a highly successful life coach. Keep enjoying summer!

    • Thanks Natalie. I’ve been on some really beautiful hikes this summer. Allison has been great to work with. All in all, I’m happy with what I’ve been doing. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

  4. Great job on all of your goals! You’re doing really well. I want to read Eleanor Oliphant, so I’m glad to hear you liked that one. 🙂 I really should look into an SEO course or something. I’ve been trying to focus on it more for my blog.


    • Thanks Lauren. I would definitely recommend Eleanor Oliphant and the BlogAid SEO course. The course is a series of recorded tutuorials with step-by-step instructions. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

  5. Hi Christie

    I don’t have a formal summer bucket list but have been very busy these days. I just started reading Eleanor Oliphant. I’m also reading Writing Down the Bones. I’ve been getting regular hikes in and riding my bike.

    You might try waiting until the winter months studying French. Curled up by the fire with a nice glass of French wine


    • Hello Laura! I hope you enjoy Eleanor Oliphant as much as I did. I’m going to check out Writing Down the Bones. That’s wonderful advice to save the French for winter, a fireplace and wine. Merci.

  6. Still a month behind Christie but I’m catching up! I see you were able to complete some of the things on your list and I have no doubt you will accomplish all that you want to do. The SEO course sounds interesting as does the French class. To answer your question, no I do not have a bucket list. The one thing I did do is get away from home this summer for about 6 weeks or so. Spent time at the beach house. Enjoyed time with friends, family and especially the grandbabies ♥

    • It’s great that you had the chance to get away this summer and spend time with family and friends. I did miss you, and I appreciate you taking the time to go back and read, and comment on, the blogs you missed while you were away. I’m still plugging away at the SEO course and learning a lot. I decided to postpone the French practice, as I was feeling overwhelmed with the number of new things I was putting into my day and my brain. I hope you are enjoying these last few weeks of summer. Here comes fall!
