Christmas Diamond: First Line Friday #22

First Line Fridays

Wow! Our house is full of traditional Thanksgiving fixins and abnormally clean (thanks to our fevered binge cleaning last week) plus our Christmas tree is on full display… it looks like our holiday season is in full swing!

Unfortunately, we’ve had a windy, rainy, dreary sort of week here (and the thought of imminent social functions always sets me off kilter) so I think a little reading escape (at the very least for the sake of my sanity) is essential. Somewhere warm and relaxing sounds like just the ticket!

Faith Green shifted the bill of the cotton painter’s cap on her head and squinted out at miles and miles of the Florida Keys’ translucent turquoise waters.

*sigh* I feel better already. There’s just something special about that gorgeous Gulf vista, simply bringing it to mind soothes and calms me (and that’s a very good thing for my husband and children)!

So, open the book nearest to you and post the first line in a comment below!

Then go see what these First Line Ladies are up to:

Carrie @ Reading is My Superpower

Rachel @ Bookworm Mama

Sydney @ Singing Librarian Books

Andi @ Radiant Light

Heather @ Encouraging Words from the Tea Queen

If you’d like to share the First Line Friday fun on your blog, let Carrie know!
