Hi, hello! Welcome to 2019! In the spirit of a new year, here are some thoughts on resolutions:Continue reading

As a tradition, I create a playlist each year with one song for each month – a little time capsule in 43 minutes. So here’s what made the cut for 2018! Lots of pop, lots of bopping, lots of songs to sing along to. (And one bonus song because why not). Link to the Spotify playlist at the bottom!Continue reading

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday – four days of family time with a side of delicious food? Sign me up. Here are some of my favorite recent reads about families – the ones you can’t life with and the ones you can’t life without.
Despite how in denial I am of this fact, we are rapidly approaching the end of 2018. (WhAAATTTT that’s crazy) I spent a bit of time this morning staring at my shelves and got absurdly overwhelmed by the titles I had promised myself I would read this year (some new, some old) and now it feels time is running out. So, here are ten titles that I’m committing to finishing before we crash into January 1, 2019! I’m a mood reader and pretty unreliable when it comes to sticking to a strict list, so I’m going to let myself pick them up as I feel the vibe.

Happy (almost) Halloween, bookworms! I’m not sure about y’all, but I am so ready to be done with the 80 degree days with 1000% humidity. Bring on the cool, crisp fall I love so much. My sweaters are itching to be worn outside of the confines of my extremely over air conditioned office. In lieu of the weather I crave, I’ve crafted this list of spooky reads to conjure that feeling. Some are favorites of mine, others are on my TBR. Curl up under a blanket with a mug of hot apple cider, light a fall candle, and crack open one of these reads. Let’s get spooky!
