February 2017 | Month in Review

February lived up to its status of being the shortest year out of the month, because I basically blinked and it was GONE. February signals the beginning of spring busy season for me at work, which lasts until the beginning of April, so I’ve been working a TON while still trying to keep up with all of the reading and blogging I’ve planned to do! Though I was super busy in February, I did so much post planning at the beginning of the year that I felt I was able to keep up with the blog and with reading pretty […]

January 2017 | Month in Review

Hello, 2017! We’re officially more than one month in now, and it’s been quite the ride so far. Though there’s a lot of ~things~ happening in the world right now, January proved itself to be a really exciting and wonderful month for me, full of incredible experiences and new resolutions (I am ALL ABOUT making New Year’s resolutions. I use my Erin Condren planner to break my resolutions into multiple categories and track them throughout the year!) I kicked off 2017 by heading to Aulani, Disney’s resort in Hawaii, for my birthday! I visited two years ago for my college […]

Christmas Recap & December 2016 Month in Review

There’s no denying that December recaps are my favorite because I get to focus on Christmas and all of it’s colorful, sparkly, and joyful glory. December means time off from work, cold weather, and more excuses to stay inside under my pile of blankets and read. This year was my second Christmas living with Max, and we had a great (if exhausting) holiday, running all around the state seeing our friends and family. Our Christmas weekend started out pretty hectic. We spent Christmas eve-eve together (I had the day off work so I finished my wrapping and shopping and watched […]

October 2016 Month in Review

Books I Read This Month: Wow, I have to say I read a LOT of books this month, considering October is the busiest month of the year for me at work! I think I was using reading as a way to relax quite a bit. I’d come home from work, exercise, read, sleep, repeat. I’ve found myself reading quite a few contemporaries lately, so I’m hoping to squeeze in more thrillers before the end of the year!
