2017 Reading Challenge

  One of the blogs I love to follow is Modern Mrs. Darcy. She seems to have the same literary tastes that I do, and one thing I'm trying to keep up with this year is her 2017 Reading Challenge. She has two different lists: reading for fun and reading for growth. I've decided to be... Continue Reading →

So, I Decided to Try Bullet Journaling…

This is How We Lose Our Humanity

Today, my heart is breaking, and that deserves to be addressed because there are others out there whose lives have been turned upside down in the wake of events this past week. Right now, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile's families are grieving their deaths. Deaths that seem so senseless and unnecessary. They are trying to figure out... Continue Reading →
