Hello, dear readers! So, I tried to do a new monthly series last year called my Bookish Breakdown: a monthly wrap up of books I've read, books I've hauled, some posts I'm really proud of writing and posts I really enjoyed from across the blogosphere! I...didn't do a great job of making that happen. The… Continue reading Bookish Breakdown No. 1: January 2019
Hello, dear readers! Happy New Year! I don't think I'm alone in the excitement of surviving 2018 and 2019 arriving.

I am so lucky to have stumbled upon connecting with her within the wide and vast webs of… Continue reading The Versatile Blogger Award!
I received a sweet and heartwarming nomination from the lovely, inspiring and talented AZ Pascoe, whose post is filled with some really fantastic advice that I recommend you check out.
