Where I’ve Been Lately + Life Updates

Posted December 1, 2019 by Cristina (Girl in the Pages) in Features / 8 Comments

Hello! Long time no read, unfortunately! I didn’t mean to take a hiatus of sorts from this blog after almost 6 years of consistently posting, but life really got in the way in 2019 (though I’m not complaining, some amazing things happened)! I wanted to pop in to provide some life updates and let you know what to expect here on my little corner of the internet as we enter into a WHOLE NEW DECADE next month!



We got married! Not much else to add since I’ve been talking about it here on the blog for about two years but it was a wonderful celebration and party and I am very glad the planning process is over 🙂


You might have seem some of my posts on Instagram back in June from our honeymoon! We did our dream honeymoon and spent two weeks at Disneyworld + a Disney cruise! I am working on a series of posts recapping our trip and hope to have them complete by the end of the year!


You might have heard me mention in years past that fall is the busiest time of year for me at work and that’s definitely still true! I basically came back from my honeymoon, had a month to prepare and was then in my busy season! Max and I still managed to head to our favorite pumpkin farm and indulge in some autumn themed treats, but I’m glad this busy season is behind me!

New Home

Perhaps the most exciting (and time consuming) thing of all that happened this year is that we moved! We sold our condo and bought our first single family home and just moved in! It was definitely a learning process but also so, so fun since we bought a new home and were able to pick out and customize many of the options. One thing I have ALWAYS wanted is my own library, and in the photos above you can see that dream is finally becoming a reality! My library will be off the main entry hall of the home behind sliding barn doors and I am so excited to finally have a dedicated space for my blogging and books! Right now it’s just full of boxes but I’m hoping to have it fully set up within the next 2-3 months. Progress posts to come!

What’s Next?

I’m planning (hoping) that 2020 is going to be a relatively quiet year for us as we’ve already had a LOT of excitement in the past two years to last us for a while! I’m hoping to return to blogging (and reading) full force in December with a lot of end of year wrap up posts, catching up on reviews, and looking forward to the new year ahead. I can’t wait to keep chatting with you all about books and also share progress on how the library is coming along 🙂 Here’s to another decade of blogging about books!
