March 2019 Reads & Reviews

I’m slowly getting back into my reading groove, thank goodness. That’s probably because I’m at last getting books from the library that have been on hold for quite some time so I’m ready to dive in. There was a good mix of books throughout the last month – some enjoyable,…

How I Like to Use My FitBit Versa

I mentioned a couple months back that I was the brief owner of an Apple Watch and quickly discovered it wasn’t at all what I wanted in my life. Instead I went back to my tried and true FitBit and opted to give their version of a smartwatch a try.…

  • 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
  • Thirty, flirty and thriving. 🎉 #thisis30
