What I Read | November

A look back at what I read last month. #ASGbookshelf #whatIread

November was a strange month for my bookshelf. I didn't get much reading done because I was preparing for our family Thanksgiving holiday - cleaning house and cooking for twenty people on my own. In addition to having only a few books to read, I received half a dozen nonfiction books from publishers, most of them cookbooks and workbooks that needed to be reviewed. Is it cheating to count those types of books in your reading challenge total? I'd love to hear your thoughts down below.

Monthly Reflections | November

Wrapping up the month and sharing what I've been up to in life and on the blog. What is your favorite moment of November? #currently

November was a month of big changes and making adjustments. It was a month of accepting some hard truths and speaking up for myself. It was a month of holding on tight but letting go of what I can't control. It was the month in which I turned forty. Physically, it didn't feel different, but mentally, I'm realizing how much space there is between who I am and who I used to be. Between who I am and who I want to be. I'm finally understanding why they call life a journey. It never ends until it does.

If You and I Had Coffee | vol 41

Join me for a conversation over coffee? #coffeedates

If you and I had coffee...

I'd invite you over for a low-key date that involved a variety of flavored coffee pods and tea bags and a box of those store-bought donuts. You know, the ones with the powdered sugar on them. Even though I'm fighting a cold, I wouldn't want to miss out on my opportunity to chat with you before the holidays are in full swing. We'd plop down on the couch and probably turn on a Christmas movie to play in the background. Maybe White Christmas, which is one of my favorites.
