One of Our Favorite Books is Being Turned Into a Movie!

Have you read The Art of Racing in the Rain? It came out in 2008 and Thomas read it a few years back and hasn’t stopped thinking about it since. We were shocked/so excited when we saw the trailer for it on TV the other day! We had no idea it was being turned into a film, and now suddenly August 9 (this Friday!) can’t come soon enough.

The book is about a racecar driver, Denny, and his life with his wife and daughter, but it’s told through the eyes of his hilarious, smart, and sometimes too-serious dog, Enzo. It’s heartbreaking, and you’ll cry and you’ll laugh and you’ll cheer them both on and omg THE ENDING and ahhhh it’s so good.

Usually movie adaptations aren’t even close to be as good as the source material, but it’ll be neat to see the story come to life, and Milo Ventimiglia playing Denny doesn’t hurt either 😍.

We’ve Been Living in These Sandals All Summer

Summertime in Tennessee is hot enough that you barely want to wear clothes, let alone shoes. That’s why we’ve been wearing these sandals for the last few months.

Birkenstocks were all the rage when PJ was in high school, but they’ve started to make a comeback in the last few years, and thank God, because we love the way they go with any and every outfit and they’re comfy as hell. They’re classic in the best kind of way, don’t you think?

PJ has been rocking this brown pair and Thomas these black ones. We wear the same size shoes for the most part, but these are the only ones we won’t share. That’s how much we love them 😂.

Also, loving these brown ones with the gold buckles:

We’ve also been eyeing these, these, and these. The ones with the straps on the back seem like they would be especially comfortable.

Do you have a pair, too? Maybe you held onto them for years, waiting for them to come back in style again? OR, you wore them the whole time regardless if they were trendy or not. We like that scenario much better.
