So I just discovered this book is worth $500. I told my work husband and he said if I called the guy I gave it to, he would give it back to me. I didn't compute that too well, because we are getting all of the books signed. I am just concerned that even though I spent $18 on the book, it is now worth $500 by the time the person I sent it to receives it. He has to record all gifts. A $500 book as a gift...he would probably return it just so he didn't have to publicly disclose it. I kind of don't want to tell him what happened. I didn't know this was going to happen when I sent it to him. Just insane this book went up that high in value in just 6 days!!! #book#books#nonfiction#bookish#bookstagram#comey#jamescomey

Next in the NYC series. 42nd Street, between Broadway & 8th Ave. 04.19.18. This block will change when I take this photo again next year. B.B. Kings is closing down. They are the latest victim of skyrocketing rent. #nyc#life#photojournaling#nycphotography#photography

And it finally happened. Got to see James Comey. I'm telling ya. People are crazy. Get to the event, I see cops everywhere. Then I see the protesters. I flash my bracelet and the cops let me in. Of course, there would be assholes trying to infiltrate the event. They were promptly removed as people drowned their protests. I swear each time it happened, Comey looked at me. Maybe it was my expression. I know these are times surrounded by fake media, protesters, disinformation and political divides. Each interruption, I was disappointed in these people. It was that part of me working in politics & the government that knows what is unacceptable behavior. Disrupting an event, buying his book just to act disgraceful because you think your voice is so important...but what about his voice? What makes what you believe based on little facts to be more important than this man trying to explain himself. Why do you refuse to listen to his side? I am even more disappointed in the media. There are 14 chapters in this book. Only 3 chapters talk about what happened with Trump. The other 11 chapters are the real story on ethics and professionalism. Maybe you should read the book before judging. When I left, protesters were waiting at the end of the escalator. Even more out front. They started yelling at me & the cop told me to just ignore them and walk away. What I saw...it made me sad inside, especially for Comey. He lets people throw shit in his face and he turns the other cheek and just smiles. That is what a man with good moral fiber does. #comey#jamescomey#book#books#nonfiction#bookish#bookstagram

I reserved 3, but they only let me get 1 copy signed, 2 unsigned. I told my boss & he said to hold onto the other copies. He'll get him to sign the rest for me when the media circus dies down. 😁😁😁 Good to know people. #bookstagram#bookish#book#books#nonfiction#jimcomey#comey#jamescomey

Tonight's reading material. Gotta get up early to pickup three reserve copies tomorrow so that Mr. Comey can sign them for my guys. They don't know yet that I'm doing this. It is going to be a surprise, especially for Mr. Comey when he finds out who the guys are (all buddies of his). My work husband is going to kill me though when he finds out I did this. 😁😁😁 For a while now, I was hoping I could meet Mr. Comey. I tweeted out my wish Friday evening. On Monday, I got an email from the publisher...wish granted. I have to say thank you to the Universe. It is always looking out for me to deliver an amazing life with tons of opportunities all of the time. This is just an example. #currentlyreading#book#books#nonfiction#bookish#bookstagram#jamescomey#comey

I'm reviewing Siri Daly's new cookbook due out this week. I go into the kitchen to start prepping the meals, come back to grab the laptop, & Matthew is lying across it while the computer is updating!!! It is difficult to work at home. I either have to let him out or wait until he sleeps...which he is not doing today! #cats#mainecooncats#mainecoon#mainecooncat#cat#catsofinstagram

It's funny how you feel this pull to do something or be somewhere at a certain time because you are searching for answers in this life, especially when your world has been shaken. I've had this strong impulse to change my library by pushing the books forward and removing all knick knacks from the shelves. That is when I rediscovered this book on the shelf. It was like it was the answer I was searching for. This was the universe helping me out. I fell in love this year and in the exact moment I fell, my heart broke. It wasn't from rejection. It was because I had to let him go. He was leaving. I don't understand how one can fall in love and get their heart broken at the same time. This isn't some case where it was a crush & I can just walk away. I saw that love had always been under the surface, even if I wanted to believe it wasn't. I didn't aim to fall in love. I was perfectly happy without love in my life. But now that it is here...I am perfectly miserable. So why did this happen? Karma? Or am I reliving my greatest heartbreak, the death of my soulmate, all over again? The sorrow I feel is the exact same...and that is what bothers me. This feels like de ja vu. The question is: can I fix this? If so, how? Or is the lesson in the idea that 'it is what it is?' #life#love#book#books#bookish#bookstagram

My friend and I were going through old photos of NYC last week and I got this idea that I should start photographing NYC through the years to watch as it changes and grows. This is 7th Ave and 50th Streets. 04.13.18. It's Friday the 13th. First warm day of the year. 80 degrees. #nyc#life#photojournaling#photography

I am in the mood for a good soup today. This Spanish stew is called Pisto Manchego. It is every bit worth the over 2 hours to make. Guess what? It's #vegetarian. Without the Manchego cheese on top, you can make it #Whole30#keto compliant. #food#foodie#diet#whole30#spanishfood#soup

I am loved. I read earlier this year someone had champagne taste on a beer budget. I had to laugh at that. Then I realized...wait, I have champagne in my fridge all of the time. I don't buy it, my bosses give it to me. They make sure my fridge is stocked with champagne & caviar. I mentioned to my boss (aka work husband) that I ran out. He immediately brings me 2 bottles of champagne. This man. One of my co-workers shared his 3 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. I told him he is now the new favorite above my work husband...and then my work husband brings out the champagne right after that and he is back to being my #1 favorite. He knows how to keep me happy. Why can't all men be like him? The thing about this gesture...I don't really drink alcohol. Maybe I'll have a mimosa on a spa day, but generally, I don't drink. It's just knowing someone takes care of me like this...keeps me surrounded in luxury...that is what I love about this gesture. #love#workhusband#champagne#life

Anything worth having requires a lot of work. My motto for now is: "Be brave enough to take the first step every single time." Whether it's that difficult conversation you've been avoiding because you're afraid of rejection or being hurt, or getting up at 4am to meditate, workout and write because you have a dream of being greater than you are...that first step is always a difficult step because your fear holds you back. Be brave enough to step into your destiny. It may be difficult now, but those difficult times are what make you stronger. #life#love#inspirationalquote#inspiration#quote#quotes

Just a tad bit spoiled. He's taking his nap before his second dinner. When he wakes, he will want to be fed. He wakes up at exactly the same time from every nap. He knows when it's time for every meal, including the one at 4:30am. I still haven't figured out how he knows about Daylight Savings yet. #cats#cat#catsofinstagram#mainecooncats#mainecoon#mainecooncat
