2018: My Year In Books

2018: My Year In Books

As I predicted last year, 2018 was so much better than 2017 in regards to my personal life, travel, reading, everything!  I’m so grateful for this upturn, and I’m sure 2019 will bring whole new slew of joy and surprises.  I started my […]

December Wrap Up and MERRY CHRISTMAS

December Wrap Up and MERRY CHRISTMAS

Merry Christmas my loves! I hope you are all having a lovely day with friends and family if you celebrate.  It’s okay, you can read this post tomorrow.  I’d rather you celebrated! And, of course, if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you’re having a lovely Monday. As you read this, I am at my parents house for Christmas brunch.  Soon enough, we’ll head to my in-laws for Christmas with that half of the family and dinner.  It’s a day off and a day to be with loved ones.  Back to work tomorrow! My books this month have come chiefly […]
