A Gentleman in Moscow has been downloaded through my Audible app for quite some time. Well before I posted my Summer Reading List. After finishing Since We Fell so quick, I wasn’t quite sure which to start on next.

Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane happened to be the book that jumped out at me and demanded to be read first out of the eight books I included on my summer reading list.

Well Aggie baseball did, going 1-2, the first weekend of March in the Shriner Baseball Classic in Houston, but nonetheless, it was a great month and the Aggies shutting out lsu last night was a cherry on top. April is looking just as promising. Engagement pictures to be taken of my sister and her fiance! My cousin’s wedding! Fish Fry,…
