Monthly Reflections | July

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



There haven't been many days this year where my anxiety and depression haven't shown themselves in some form, but July was fairly uneventful on that front. I've been staying busy with lots of books, lots of time with my family, especially my five-year-old nephew, plotting a few writing projects, and planning a few trips. Toss in a few internet "discussions" with some anti-maskers and you've got yourself a full month. Looking forward to August...

If You and I Had Coffee | vol 49

Join me for a conversation over coffee? #coffeedates



If you and I had coffee...

We'd meet up for a quick chat because it's been a hectic season but we still want to try to make the effort to fit a little time in for our visit. We'd order our beverages of choice through the contactless service at the local cafe and pick out a little table on the quiet outdoor patio. Here, the COVID restrictions are being tightened again because the numbers are going up, so we are both happy to have chosen this cafe and not the ultra-popular one down the road.

My Favorite Books of 2020 | January to June

My top twelve books of the first half of 2020. #books #asgbookshelf #reading



On January 1st, 2020, I set out on a goal to read 150 books in the next twelve months, most of them to be filled by the reading challenges that I participate in every year. At one hundred and nineteen books already checked off, I am well on my way to conquering this goal and then some. According to Goodreads, I am forty-three books ahead of schedule. Woohoo!
