gatsbyThere is no written work acceptable to discuss today other than The Great Gatsby. It’s a longtime favorite of mine, as it takes place in my favorite era – the roaring 20s. I’m not one to believe in reincarnation [nor am I one to not believe in it…my mental jury is still out] but my connection to the 1920s leaves me with no other option. I simply must have been a flapper in another life. And I must have lived in Atlantic City, and smoked skinny cigarettes, and wore fabulous clothes bought for me by all my gentleman suitors. Some things are just known to be facts: this is one of them.

Spend the first part of the weekend re-reading this classic [or reading for the first time. I met two grown women today who have never read this book and I’m still recovering.] Then put on some red lipstick, put a feather in your headband and take your mama to go see the movie this weekend. I can’t think of a more perfect Mother’s Day gift.

  1. Totally agree about mother’s day. I’m far away from my mom but we both went to see the movie at the same time today and had a lot of fun chatting about it afterwards. My sister did this as well, but she took it a step further dressing up as a flapper. I also just got the audio book from audibles and am loving experiencing one of my favorite books in so many different ways.
