↠ Yesterday was a total girls’ day. Two good friends and I spent the day browsing through the boutiques in town: Rosewood, Bellwether (a blogger-owned pop-up shop that turned into a permanent store in August!) of course my all-time favorite juice bar Salud, basically we spent the afternoon hanging out in town and we had such a great time ♥
↠ NaNoWriMo anyone? I’m falling a bit behind and to make up for it, last night I decided to write a side story focusing on the villain. The supernaturaly, paranormaly, totally evil and vile villain. LOVE.
↠ ALSO, NaNo has severely cut into my reading time, which I knew would happen. So far this month I’ve finished two books: the so, so, so amazing Along the Infinite Sea by Beatriz Williams and Emma Trevayne’s The Accidental Afterlife of Thomas Marsden.
↠ Earlier this week we celebrated our three month adoptaversary! I grew up with dogs and have loved each and every one of them dearly, but Baylor is something special ♥ It honestly is a little surreal to think it’s only been three months since we brought her home with us. She instantly became our baby and it truly feels like she’s been with us forever.
↠ In addition to The Jungle Book I received a few ARCs recently. A Dictionary of Mutual Understanding by Jackie Copleton (WWII historical fiction + family drama ♥!) The Charm Bracelet by Viola Shipman (dual era family saga!) and one of my most anticipated 2016 releases, Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase (dual era, English manor, SECRETS!)
