2021 Reading Challenge: February Update

Did February fly by or what?! I cannot believe we’re starting into March already. The end of this month marks the first quarter of the year, and I’m very motivated to see good progress on my reading challenge. This year, the biggest change I’ve made in how I’m making sure…

Brushing Off The Dust

Hello there, reader. It has been a while. I’ve been nursing the idea of coming back to regular blog posts, and trying to imagine a way to do it gracefully. In the end, there’s nothing for it but to sit down and start writing. It’s the only way to push…

2020 Reading Challenge – July and August

August was a month for the history books. Writing them, not reading them. We started school, traveled out of state for a wedding, and spent several days in the hospital finding out that our youngest child, Sieg, has Type 1 Diabetes. The last four weeks have been a legitimate blur.…

Sophia Louise, Age 8

Somehow, and I don’t know quite how it happened, I’ve been a mother for 8 years. The girl who made me a mama is still the greatest ray of sunshine to us. She is brilliant, funny, helpful, sweet and responsible. She is definitely the ringleader amongst her siblings, but they…

What I Read: June 2019

June felt like a good reading month to me. I only read 8 books, but I suspect my page count is significantly higher than my last several months. Anyways, I’m still “behind” on my reading challenge by a couple books, but there’s always this month to get caught up again.…
