His and Hers



In our home library, one side is his and one side is hers. Visitors immediately notice how different the content is on one side versus the other. Her side (mine, of course) is filled with autographed picture books, chapter books for young people, books about teaching, and two shelves of traditional literature. His shelves are filled with thrillers, mysteries, and spy novels, with bowls and collections of agates intermingled. I love the blending of our collections and our lives. Today marks 24 years of marriage, and I am ever-grateful for his love of me and his passion for reading. We have shaped three young men with the same love of books and reading.

  1. Hope that you celebrating your 27 years as we "speak"; it's an accomplishment and I salute the both of you two!

  2. It was not the celebration we hoped, Kate, because we were getting one son ready for college move-in today. We plan to take time to celebrate this weekend.
