Good Afternoon from dreary, rainy Wisconsin. I struggled with what to write this week as I try to pick back up blogging weekly. My numbers have been rising steadily which is honestly unexpected during quarantine when (let’s be honest) we just want to mindlessly binge Netflix. I struggled to think […]
I missed you guys so much! A lot has happened since I took a forced hiatus in November. My laptop that was my baby died, I did A LOT of traveling, and I was diagnosed with tendonitis in my wrist. I have a new laptop now, you will get lots […]
Today I want to talk about books that changed my life. These are books that either inspired me to write, made me read more, made me think, or made me see the world in a completely different way. A lot of them are ones I read as a child because that’s when we are most susceptible to those feelings of everything clicking into place, I think. So here we go!
So you may have noticed something new… yeah I’M SELF HOSTED NOW! So this is a brand new site and I’m still moving things over and updating links and social media and everything, but I think I’ve found my permanent home! I’m so excited to tidy and update all these graphics, but I wanted to get a little post out for you today. I wanted to do a New Year tag because I feel like I haven’t done many bookish things this year yet, so I thought this would be a lot of fun!
Hi Dreamers! Sorry for the late post (as we are now over a week into 2019). After my trip I got really sick with a double ear infection that turned into a sinus infection. Basically, i got on my connecting flight in Atlanta and my ears didn’t pop once I […]
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! When you’re reading this I will be out of the country without WiFi until 2019! I can’t wait to tell you about all of my adventures when I get back! Today I’m doing the End of Year Book Tag which I found on Jenn’s blog Jenniely. (It was originally on Drizzle and Hurricane’s Books.)
Today, since I’ve talked about historical Christmas, my own traditions, and my Yule traditions, I thought I’d take a day to tell you all what this all means to me. Why is Christmas special to me? I’ve been thinking about it a lot this year being in a new place and having new traditions, both from my future in-laws and ones that Josie and I created together. I felt more Christmas spirit this past year than I have in a while and I think that’s because I’ve really taken a moment to ask myself which traditions mean more to me and which can change.
I’ve had so much fun exploring different Christmas traditions this year and reevaluating my own traditions and view of the world. So many of these little moments have left me in awe of the world around me and fascinated to know more about people and cultures and the history around me.
I’ve wanted to do this post for a while and it’s been sitting in my backlogs. I figured blogmas was the perfect time to do this (if nothing else than I’m running out of Christmas themed ideas). And I thought it would be interesting to do this topic because most of the time I’m pretty neutral about it. I have some pros and cons to each format which I’ll outline and I lean towards one (that you will have to read to the end to find out), but most of the time it’s whatever works.
I am who I am. I am a makeup-loving, heels wearing, skirt flouncing lesbian and I am so proud of that!
