Weekend Updates and The Met

Happy weekend everyone. my blog has been collecting dust lately. I’m finally on my computer this morning playing catch up. I hope to do some blog hopping today and work on my review of The Great Gatsby, which I can never do justice to anyway.

I also have a Top Ten Tuesday post from a few weeks ago that I never posted. I think I will post it this week or next even though the theme, “songs I wish were books”, has come and gone.

I’ll close this post with a few shots I took last week when we visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It was fantastic and I recommend visiting if you are ever in the area. I mainly went into see Vigée Le Brun exhibit. Le Brun was the official portraitist of Marie Antoinette and seeing the paintings of the former Queen of France was really a treat. I hope to get back to the museum again sooner than later since there are so many beautiful and inspiring things to see there.
