the books I read in May

the books I read in May

It’s been a little while since I’m shown my face around here, but I got a lot of reading done in May, so – here I am! Ready to share. Overshare, probably. But hey. In May, I decided to read more ebooks and listen to more audiobooks (it’s what I was in the mood for, weirdly enough!) and definitely did. I don’t think I read a single physical book in May. A question I do get a lot is: Do…

what I’ve learned from Rachel Hollis about creating habits

what I’ve learned from Rachel Hollis about creating habits

I was so excited when Rachel Hollis’ new book, Girl, Stop Apologizing, came out in March!

what I read in March 2019

Somehow, I managed to read six books in March, even though it felt like an intense marathon that I was never going to get out of.
