Reading Life: April 2019

My reading picked up a bit in April, which felt like an unexpected gift. Vacations no longer mean hours of reading on the beach or during flights, but I’ll take what I can get! I’m no longer tracking my reading with daily photos, but I started an old school pen-and-paper journal to keep track of… Continue reading Reading Life: April 2019

Reading Life: March 2019

March was quite a month of highs and lows, from a sweet wedding (& first flower girl performance for Amelia) and a visit from family, to nearly three weeks of sickness that wiped me out and put me firmly back in “survival mode” when it came to parenting/house management/etc. including reading! Once again, I only… Continue reading Reading Life: March 2019

Reading Life: February 2019

February flew by in a flurry, and my reading picked up just the tiniest bit. I’m still in a bit of a rut but I’m trying to just enjoy reading when I can fit it in.

But… Continue reading Reading Life: 2018, Including December

Reading Life: November 2018

November came and went, and maybe it’s the cozy weather or maybe it’s the long road trips that come with holiday travel, but it felt like I actually had more time for reading this month, which is always a good thing! I’m still tracking and taking daily photos of what I’m reading, even if they… Continue reading Reading Life: November 2018

Night Night Books

Amelia’s bedtime routine is consistent: after dinner and bath, it’s time to brush teeth, put on pajamas, and read a book. Then there are two rounds of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, sound machine on, lights off. We rotated between the same three books every single night for almost a year, but over the past couple… Continue reading Night Night Books
