What I Read | May

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

Confession. Some months, I suck at reading. This was one of those months. Scrolling down this page, it might look like I tackled a lot of books, but truth be told, most of them were cookbooks or children's books that a publisher sent to me. I'd agreed to review them so that I could pass them along to my niece and nephew to work on this summer. There were more of these than there were actual books on my shelf. And sometimes, life is just that way. Have you been in a reading slump? What do you do to get out of it?

Monthly Reflections | May

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

May was a bit of a regressive month for me. Old habits crept back in and pulled me away from the progress I'd made in my distance from them. I wasn't blind to it. In fact, I looked them in the eye and invited them back in. Sometimes, we need to learn the hard way. Don't we? I now stand on the doorstep of a new month and a new season, and have the resolve to try again, and try harder. Time is precious and I don't have a lot of it. None of us do.

What I Learned | Spring 2020

Today I'm sharing the lessons I learned this Spring. #whatilearned

Looking back at my last What I Learned post, I read that I had called the winter season a dud. It turns out that Spring was anything but, with a worldwide pandemic and subsequent social distancing lockdown. Insert the obvious "hold my beer" joke. I had very little face-to-face interaction with anyone other than the few family members I live with or near, but I made a lot of observations and learned many new things. Who knew one could gain such a wealth of wisdom from their own living room?
