Reading Life: January 2019

Did you see that meme that went something like “January’s been a tough year, but we made it”? Nothing bad actually happened, but it just felt like such a longggg month around here, from post-holiday limbo to the reality of cold dreary days with plenty of rain (but no snow!) to keep us stuck inside.… Continue reading Reading Life: January 2019

Reading Life: July 2018

I expected this summer to be full of lazy days watching my toddler wander from play dates at the park to the pool, but it has been unexpectedly busy; July especially! Between travel and medical procedures and house repairs, I haven’t been on a “normal” schedule for a while, but fortunately, the change in routine… Continue reading Reading Life: July 2018
