Summer Break

Hey. Thank you so much for coming by this little space and letting me share it with you. Lately I've been feeling like my life is lacking margin. I'm hurrying from one to-do to the next, with little space in between. Without realizing it, somewhere along the line this blog started to feel like an obligation rather than a creative space that brings me joy and connection.

Fortunately, it is not an obligation. I'm going to step away for a little while, to gain a little bit of breathing room back in my life. I'm not sure how long I'll be, a summer break, longer, I don't know.

I'll still be around on Instagram, and visiting blogs when I can. Thanks for reading. I feel incredibly blessed to have gotten to know so many of you, albeit virtually, over the last several years.

In My Library Tote: April Book Reviews and Recommendations

I took an unintentional blog break this week thanks to strep throat, which for some reason has been my nemesis lately. I got it for the first time since childhood at the end of last year, and then again this week. Luckily this time I recognized it right away and went to the doctor, who told me that my tonsils may have to go if I get it again this year. Yikes!

Anyway, I couldn't stay away for long, I had to share my reading round-up for the month of April. Here are my April books--quite a few good ones, I might add.

Special Birthday Post for Ada

I just wanted to stop in to share that I'm over at Ada's blog today for a special birthday post! She is celebrating her birthday with a bunch of bloggers this weekend, so head over and wish her a happy day!

We're all wearing shades of coral, red, or pink, so to see how I style these oldies-but-goodies coral shoes for a night out, be sure to head to her blog. Happy birthday Ada!

April Wins and May Goals

This year, along with my word of the year, I am focusing on a theme each month and creating goals around that theme. Similar to my happiness project last year, I hope to cumulatively build on the habits I create with each monthly theme. Every month I’m sharing my goals, along with a few wins and things that brought me joy from the previous month, since joy is the word I’m focusing on in 2019. In April, my goals centered around parenting, while in May I'm tackling my closet.
