The Well-Read Redhead (and family) are moving!
And not only are we moving...but I am taking on a new and much-wanted job title: CEO of Domestic Affairs. (Stay at home momma, to the layperson.)
HOLY CRAP CRACKERS.
My husband applied for a really great job a couple of months ago, but we didn't have our hopes up for it even a little. Two months and many interviews later, he was offered the position. Needless to say, our shock was GREAT. However, shock was immediately replaced by excitement (great career step! Kelly gets to stay home!) and also terror (we have to sell our house! We have to buy a new one! IN LESS THAN 2 MONTHS! Please kill me). But mostly excitement.

(In related news, any book bloggers in the greater Rochester, NY area? I need friends! I promise I'm not (too) weird. Maybe.)
So, that is Part 1 of my news. Part 2 is forthcoming...soon. (Suspense, I HAZ IT.)
Onward to May in review (book-wise). First, as always, a photo depicting the month. Despite all the insanity, Small Fry and I also took heavy advantage of the summer-like weather.

I didn't do a lot of other book talk last month (preoccupied!) but I did flash you back to my star-studded engagement anniversary. Good times. And my participation in Armchair BEA was basically the equivalent of going to actual BEA and sitting in the hotel room the whole time.
June is going to be nutty around here as we try to get things in order for The Big Move before my husband's official start date (August 12!). Plus, we have a vacation scheduled mid-month (much needed under the circumstances, though it also feels somewhat poorly placed now, time-wise...ah well). I have a few book tours scheduled, so I promise not to disappear! And I'm hoping to get a little beach reading done on vacation anyway.
Have a lovely month, readers...and stay tuned for more excitement!
