I’m nervous and excited for this new chapter of our lives to begin – and to meet our new little reader. Here are some photos of our nursery – we’ve worked really hard at getting it ready and crafty and pretty for our little girl: Isn’t it cute?

Hi guys, you may have noticed that things have been a bit slow around here. I wanted to give you an update on what’s been happening. It’s been a massively busy and emotional last few months, especially since I first announced that I was pregnant. So here’s what I’ve been up to. My grandmother: Without a doubt, the single thing that has defined the last few weeks has been my grandmother’s death. She passed away on September 1, and I’m still mourning and trying to process that last week with her. I’m so grateful that we were able to be […]

In Which I Attempt to Read Too Many Books & Inevitably Fail | ARC August 2017

In Which I Attempt to Read Too Many Books & Inevitably Fail | ARC August 2017

I’ve been reading steadily, but very lazy about posting. That’s why ARC August is, as always, a way for me to catch up and try to get my anticipated books and reviews up for the fall. Let me just say this: I’ve only done ARC August once before and I pretty much failed immediately. But sometimes, the journey is not about the destination. It’s about setting goals and just having them, […]
