Thoughts



I feel like the beginning of 2017 has offered me a lot of clarity, both personally and professionally...

Letting Go


I said I was going to finish the Food for Thought series so here we are. A year later...

I'm not big on New Years Resolutions but I do love setting goals. So this year, my one major, overarching goal is: BE. BETTER. 

Iceland Video


HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2016 was a big fat piece of trash year for us BUT 2017 is going to be so much better. More blogging, vlogging, and traveling! We just got back from spending New Years down at the beach (30A) and the picture above is of the one hour that it was sunny the whole weekend. That's kind of how it goes with Florida but I'll take rainy over no Florida most days.

I'm heading back to Iceland next week and couldn't be more excited. I finally got around to putting together a video of my first trip to Iceland this summer. Check it out here! I think it turned out pretty well considering I never had any intentions of making a full video. I had just taken clips of a lot of the landscapes because I knew pictures wouldn't do anything justice and as it turns out, I had a clip from almost every region of the country.


MY FIRST VIDEO! & Welcome to Serenbe


Well isn't this exciting? I'm becoming a Youtuber. Weird. At least to me it's weird since I never originally intended on branching out but it makes sense, doesn't it? Anyway, click here and watch the little video I put together while wandering around at Serenbe. Remember to give it a thumbs up if you like it!

Book Reviews


It's been a long time since I've posted a book review but that doesn't mean I haven't been reading. I'm always reading, duh. If you look in my purse at any given time you'll find at least one, maybe two books.

On a similar note, I just bought my first e-reader. I have an ipad mini that I've used for a few years for books that I don't plan on sharing with Charley or loaning out to other folks and I've loved how compact and lightweight it is-makes it great for travel obviously. Probably my favorite thing about it is the function that allows you to have a black background and white lettering-way easier on your eyes and helpful when you're trying to keep the light dim in bed if someone else is sleeping. The mini has been great but my big beef with it is that the battery dies pretty quickly. When I found out that the new Nook Glowlight Plus had a 6 WEEK battery life and was WATERPROOF I was sold. It's super tiny and lightweight. So far my only complaints are that the classics, like A Christmas Carol, aren't free like they are on iBooks. Bummer. Also, it seems like you can't make the font smaller either-does anybody know about this? Can I make the Nook font smaller? HALP! Anywho, we'll see how long the battery lasts, I'm pumped to not have to add more clutter and books to my life unnecessarily. Hopefully I don't become one of those people who has an e-reader and still ends up buying books-I'm definitely going to try not to. Planning on only buying physical books if it's something I'm going to be sharing with Charley (he hates e-readers) or if I buy it secondhand.
