Gift Shop Book

I'm a sucker for gift shops. I know that most of the things in there are nothing that I actually need but I can't help myself. I get sucked in. I totally needed little porcelain bird salt and pepper shakers, the record player that has Christmas music, the frog squirting water, the pens, notebooks, books. Oh my. They are all scream at me to buy them or at least admire them.

One book in a gift shop recently caught my big blue eyes and I had to have it. It was a cutesy book about love and I was on a date. I just had to have it.

Me and the boyfriend read this book together. I read a few pages and then he read a few pages. It was so strange that everything we read it was fitting for us to read it and not necessarily the other way around. I don't know how that was possible at all but it was really beautiful reading the book together.

Reading a book together just so happens to be one of my 101 goals on my list. I didn't actually mean read a book together like we did. I kinda thought we would pick a book and read it separately and talk about it. Very strange that we did this goal the book.

This just made me love and appreciate gift shops even more. You never know what you are going to find.


  1. That's so sweet that you read a book together! I need to do something like that with my husband..he hates reading though. haha.

  2. Aww very cute!! You're lucky he likes to do that kinda stuff with you!
    I've always been a sucker for journals and day planners... like how many do you actually need?
