A good summer read & an impossible ask.

CAPES [something empowering] In all types of relationships, it’s important to be aware of your own expectations.  In practicing this, I’ve realized how irrational I can be, especially when I’m expecting the other person to read my mind.  Wittle down your expecations to the rational ones, and when the timing is right, find a way to express them in a non-passive aggressive way (because contrary to what you may think, being passive agreeisve is highly ineffective and incredibly unattractive). 

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction]  My drinker count is up to 14.  I think I need to have a party.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy]  I’m in desperate need of a good summer read.  I’m looking for a book somewhere in the ballpark of The History of Love (Nicole Krauss) meets Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Jonathan Safer Foer), with an undertone of To Kill A Mockingbird (Harper Lee).  I know…an impossible ask, but I would love your suggestions.
