One Day in December by Josie Silver

One Day in December by Josie Silver

Hello, World.

I have a book recommendation! The end of the fall semester was an absolute whirlwind for me and the “fun” reading became unmanageable. I definitely got a little overzealous and ordered two 400+ page books for October and November and fell behind. I’m hoping as we enter 2019 I’ll have more time to read for fun again, as reading novels brings me so much joy. Continue reading “One Day in December by Josie Silver”

Gifts For Men

Gifts For Men

Hello, World.

Today I wanted to share my top picks for gifts for men. Whether it’s a significant other, brother, brother-in-law, or father, I think all of my picks work. Somehow, most of my picks ended up with a travel theme, but alas, travel materials are something most of the men I know don’t buy for themselves, so would be great gifts, especially if you have travel planned in the new year! When I need gifts for men, I got to Mark and Graham or Kiel James Patrick, pretty much exclusively. Continue reading “Gifts For Men”

December Daily: Why I Participate

December Daily: Why I Participate

Hello, World.

With Thanksgiving this week, and the holiday season in full swing, I wanted to share why I participate in Ali Edward’s December Daily project as a 20-something, single, childless person. When I tell people I scrapbook my way through December, they usually look at me with a few expressions: (1) confusion, (2) “wow, you’re a grandma” or (3) support. People who know me know I love taking photos and I love the holiday season. Christmas music, holiday drinks, fuzzy sweaters, Hallmark movies, I’ll have it all. The holidays are a very happy time for my family. Continue reading “December Daily: Why I Participate”

Parents Visit Williamsburg

Parents Visit Williamsburg

Hello, World.

My parents recently visited Williamsburg, and I wanted to share some snapshots of their trip. We had so much fun. Despite my week being far busier than I anticipated, I’m glad I got to see them and I appreciate them visiting. I don’t go home for Thanksgiving, so they usually visit the first week in November. This year I’m not going home until fairly late in the year for the Christmas holiday, which I’m not excited about. However, seeing them makes it a bit easier.

Boston, Massachusetts

Boston, Massachusetts

Hello, World!

I’m so excited to share my fall break trip to Boston, Massachusetts with you. For the last two years, my best friend, Holly and I have talked about me visiting her in Boston. Due to our differing schedules, it hadn’t worked yet. This being [potentially] my last year on the east coast, however, I decided to take the plunge and visit during fall break. We were very excited about my visit and Holly had a ton planned for us to do and see. Because I have so many photos, I wanted to break it down by days and explain each day.  Continue reading “Boston, Massachusetts”
