I'm linking up with the awesome Bookish Beck to share my library usage for November!

This is a great meme to join because it involves lists (who doesn't love… Continue reading Library Checkout – November 2018
Today I'm linking up with Anne Bogel to share what I've been reading lately. I've recently had a dry spell in my reading but am back at it! The story of my life.

Everyday I fail at being the person that I want to be. I want to be gentle and kind. To be forgiving and understanding. To accept others as they are and not push them to change. I'm not so good at being that person, but I keep trying. And the positive? I'm able to recognize… Continue reading Okay with the topsy-turvy?
