Hey friends! For the past several weeks I’ve had the feeling to bring these types of posts back. The ones where I share more personal things about what’s been happening in our life and give a little update.
When I first started blogging, over ten years ago, these were the only types of blog posts that I wrote. They were meant for friends and family and to help me remember.
That’s why I’m bringing them back. To have a chance to update friends and family who don’t live close on what’s been happening in our lives, and so that I can remember more about this time instead of making only book lists all the time (those are fun, but not all I want to write about).
As of right now I’ll be sharing these updates/more personal posts every Sunday.
This week was cold, like it’s 3 degrees outside but feels like -10 right now cold. We also got a little bit of snow every morning, which we desperately need. Von LOVES the snow and we did get to play outside for a few minutes when we got more than an inch.
Taylor Swift also announced that her re-recordings are officially coming! Fearless (Taylor’s Version) will be out in April and we got Love Story (Taylor’s Version) on Friday. Why does this make my weekly wrap-up post? Because I love her music, I’ve been listening to Love Story on repeat and I think it’s really amazing that she’s finally going to own all of her music.
I’ve been slowly dabbling on my second book. Right now, my first novel is with an editor, and I have been patiently (sort of) waiting for her feedback. I’ve been writing a few scenes here and there of my second book, but I won’t fully dive into that one until the first one is finished.
We celebrated my father in-laws birthday on Friday and Von sent out Valentine’s Day cards to all of her aunts and uncles.
I started reading Wildly Optimistic, in hopes of redirecting my negative attitude and to have more trust in God.
