I apologize that it has been pretty quiet around here this week. From catching up from last weekend’s holiday festivities to adjusting to Ryan being back at work to Finn being sick (again), I’ve been using any spare moment to myself to curl up with a blanket and my Kindle to get lost for a little bit.

It’s hard to believe that 2015 is coming to a close tonight, but I am excited for the possibilities and opportunities that 2016 (hopefully) has in store.
As far as this space goes, I’ve taken a lot of time to reflect the past couple months as to where I want it to go, and I have some new ideas up my sleeve for the coming year. Thank you to everybody that continues to come back to read my posts and comment – you are the reason that I keep working so hard on this blog and why it continues to be fun!

On that note, I’m sending all of you best wishes for the New Year. Cheers!

  • #Bookworms, rejoice! This is our kinda day! 📚 On #WorldBookDay, I simply want to say thank you to all authors. Your characters, stories and words change my life daily, and I can’t imagine a life without them. Happy reading to all! #bookstagram
  • “It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” Alice, Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
Do you ever experience quiet moments of total content while on vacation, no matter where you are?
  • Catalina Island is nothing short of enchanting. ☀️ #catalinacasino #vacationmode #frommyview
  • California vacation part one: ☑️. Thanks for the magic, memories and OG nostalgia Disneyland! #adultsatdisney #toontown #wallsofdisney
  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
  • Today was a good day to have a great day. ☀️ #happy #thursdaythoughts
