Welp, the Christmas season is officially over. The tree came down last night and the room was cleaned and rearranged! I wanted to take a quick minute to talk about my 12 Days of Christmas Tradition though.
I love reading so much! I didn’t do a very good job of reaching my reading goal in 2017, but I’m hoping this year will be better. It’s one of my resolutions to set aside some time everyday either when I wake up or before bed to read a little bit. In doing so, I hope to reach my goal of reading 36 books in 2018. Of those 36 books I would like to read, these ten I’m sharing are at the very top of my list!
Happy New Year everyone! It is officially 2018!! I can hardly believe it! Can you?
I had an exciting night ringing in the new year with some of my best friends from high school. We played games until 11 then went over to Grant Park in Chicago and walked toward Navy Pier to see the fireworks. I don’t have much photo evidence (the one’s below were taken before all the phones died) because all of our phones died almost simultaneously from the cold, but it was so fun to spend time with them and act like penguins for warmth in the negative Chicago temperatures. We finished the night by warming up with hot cocoa and a movie, and had an old school sleepover. Despite the freezing weather, I wouldn’t have wanted to start 2018 any other way!

Hey everyone! Sorry for being off the radar for a few weeks there. Quick update on life since I last posted: my class finished, I got a cold and slept a lot, and I finished up almost all of my Christmas shopping.
Hey y’all! I’m sorry I’ve not posted more often this week. I ended up leaving my computer charger at home on accident and it’s the final week of my online class that I took for fun, so I’ve been busy with a paper and final assignments.
Happy December y’all! I spent the weekend at the Nutcracker and my Dad’s Chorus’ Christmas show, so I am fully in the Christmas spirit! Both shows were absolutely amazing!
