Bout of Books 21

One of my 2018 goals is to participate in at least four readathons (I had initially said more readathons but I think it helps to have a measurable number) so I’m excited to be joining in for the 21st round of Bout of Books.  This is one of my favorite readathons because it’s very low pressure.  You ...

Merry Christmas!

Andrew and I took our very first Christmas card photo this year and after sending them out to our family and friends, we wanted to do something even more special.  Andrew used our behind the scenes footage (which you can see on my YouTube channel!) to create a Daily Prophet like video for us to ...

Learning a Family Recipe + Celebrations Galore!

Whew, I don’t think I’ve ever packed so much into two short days before.  It’s currently Thursday and after one of the busiest weekends followed by an even more insane work week, I can say with certainty that I will be relishing every quiet moment I have coming my way this weekend.  Current plans include ...

December Small Goals + Year End Survey

I’ve seen a bunch of people post small monthly goals (and I recently realized that Writes Like a Girl started this monthly post & has a monthly link up for it on her blog!) and I really like the idea of re-centering and re-evaluating everything more frequently.  It’s awesome to make yearly goals but it’s also easy ...

Thanksgiving + a Long Weekend on the Shore

I definitely say this all the time, but I’m completely blown away by how quickly time is passing these days.  It seems like only yesterday that I was daydreaming about my almost-week-long-Thanksgiving-vacation and now here I am, what feels like a day later, getting ready to catch a train and head back to work in ...

On Sunday night after putting up all of our Christmas decorations (photos to come!) Andrew and I caught up on Fresh Off the Boat and in this year’s Thanksgiving episode, Eddie and Emery take Evan to see I Know What You Did Last Summer and he’s very reasonably, terrified of everything afterward.  They try to help him by encouraging ...

Fall-Themed Q&A

I think it’s pretty clear how deep my love of Autumn runs so when I saw this tag on Lauren’s blog and I decided to post my own answers as well!  (Q&A hosted by The Blended Blog) Favorite fall sweet treat? My favorite treat that I bake at home is chocolate chip pumpkin bread. I use the mix ...

Classic Books on my Must Read List

My reading habits have vastly changed in the past couple of years as I’ve been being more thoughtful about which books I choose to consume.  One very important goal for me is to continue my trend of reading at least one classic book per month.  Sometimes classics can be tough to get through (fortunately I ...

An Autumn Wish List

Autumn is by far my favorite season.  I pretty much live for chunky sweaters, cozy plaids, well loved denim and oh the cozy accessories!  I could honestly go all of Spring and Summer without buying a single article of clothing but as soon as August hits, I feel alive and inspired and crave the comforts ...
