IT’S OFFICIALLY FALL SEASON Y’ALLLLLLLL!!!!!!!🍁
*Clears throat and pretends to have some dignity*
Okay, so not officially, but come on, it’s September, it’s Autumn to me. And I will have you know, I loved fall before it was a fad, so let me enjoy myself 😊 Not even kidding, I’ve already decorated my house for fall, that’s how excited I am 😉
Anywho! Let’s get to this monthly wrap-up, shall we? And don’t forget to share your recaps of August in the comments section!
Well, this was a big month for me mentally and emotionally. I’ve struggled with some postpartum depression and anxiety in the last few months, so it was a huge deal to me that last month was the best I’ve felt since Dixie was born! Praise the Lord!💚
Physically, I have more energy, even with Dixie dealing with sleep regression, lol! She’s 13 pounds now and 24 inches long! She says “Hey!” and “Mama!” now, which just melted me into a little puddle. 🤗She can roll over now and is in 3-6 month clothes! Growing like a weed! She loves her rattles, her toes and her swaddles. And she’s a true southerner with her obsession with plaid patterns!
I’ve gotten to spend a lot of time with my mother-in-law, had bubble tea with one of my besties before she left for college and have rediscovered our local library! Don’t leave me alone in there without a responsible adult! 📚
Book of the Month ||
Hands down, Beyond Her Calling by Kellyn Roth. People. This book is so…oh man I still can’t find words to explain why I love it so much. It’s in my top five for the year I think. I’m so looking forward to reading the next two books in the series and trust me, reviews for the whole series are coming to the blog soon!
Total Books Read This Month ||
10, not counting books of the Bible! Counting those, it’s 18! I’m 15 books behind for my books in a year challenge on Goodreads (52/100), but I am confident I can reach my goal!
Verse of the Month ||
Jeremiah 29: 11— For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thought of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Song of the Month ||
Y’all are gonna think this is funny, but it’s from one of the first Barbie movies, Rapunzel! The main theme to be exact 😊
Writing Update ||
Well, there’s not much to report. I did get TSAL back from the formatters, but there’s still a little work to do. She’s doing an amazing job and I’m so grateful God led me to work with her! I hope to do a post in the future about the amazing people behind the scenes on this book baby! 💚
