Welcome to my first Monday!

Good morning & Happy Monday!!

This kind of feels like the first day at a new job. Don’t trip and fall on your way in. Breathe.

First and foremost, I am NOT a morning person and like most who also have early classes or a 9-to-5 type of job, Monday mornings are particularly excruciating. In an ideal world, Monday would be a day off so that we can warm up to our week and start off fresh Tuesday morning. But then again, Monday would become the new Sunday and Tuesday, the new Monday…Back to Square 1. Never mind!

Instead of dwelling on the fact that Monday is usually not the favorite day of the week, why not make the best of it? Roll out of that comfortable bed, start that coffee machine and embrace the glorious day ahead of you! There is a book waiting to be devoured!

I am currently reading “Secret Daughter: A Novel” by Shilpi Somaya Gowda. It’s the story of two women, Kavita and Somer, and the child that binds both of their destinies. Living in a remote Indian village where having sons is preferred, Kavita gives birth to a baby girl. In order to save her daughter’s life, she gives her away for adoption. Somer, an American woman, travels to India with her Indian husband, hoping to adopt a baby in order to fulfill their dream of building a family together.

I began reading this book a little while ago but picked up a few too many books since. I decided to take a break from the other three books I am also currently reading to finish this beautiful story. I will post my review shortly.

Until my next blog post, I wish you a superb day, keep on smiling (not too much because that would be creepy) and enjoy all the beautiful things your day has in store for you!

Much love,

Christina *xXx*
