October felt like a marathon from beginning to end, from Amelia’s 3rd birthday to fall festivities, with two visits from family and a couple weeks of congestion thrown in for good measure. Side tangent: does anyone else feel like Autumn is the… Continue reading Reading Life: October 2019

Reading Life: September 2019
