I’m ready to start chipping away at my before 30 list and I’m going to start with one that SHOULD be easy. Unfortunately I feel like it’s not going to be as easy as it sounds. I’m going to find my love of reading again. It’s not so much that I don’t love reading anymore, I’m sure I still love to read. I just need to make the time to sit down and enjoy a book. I feel like time slips through my fingers and I think the last time I finished a book and had that bittersweet feeling (happy to have a new favorite, but sad that it’s over) was during a summer break in college. I miss getting lost in a book.
It’s time to make this change. I need to make it a priority in my moment’s of free time. I need a new book. Something so good that I won’t be able to put it down. So I turn to you. What have you read that totally sucked you in? I have always loved historic fiction (Sure, some of it’s not great literature or accurate but I love it. Sue me.) but I’m willing to give anything a try. It helps if I can somehow connect to the main character.
Please insert book recommendations here. <3
Halloween kind of caught us of guard this year. With the house hunt well under way and my new-ish job, we hardly have time to do anything. We actually didn’t carve our pumpkins until a few hours before the trick-or-treaters showed up. We went with classic faces since we didn’t have fancy carving kits. Jared’s is on the left. The nose glowed and it looked great lit up. Mine is on the right.
Jared and I didn’t wear costumes this year. Since Logan wears a tuxedo on a daily basis anyway, he wore a white bow tie and went as James Bond 007. I think he looked quite dashing.
We ran out of candy in the first 40 minutes are I felt awful turning our light off, but I’m glad we finally got some trick-or-treaters. Can you believe a lot of kids don’t know what a Fun-Dip is anymore?! We had them in our candy bowl and I had a few kids hold one up and ask what they were. Of course the parents all knew what they were and assured the kids they would love them.
