So this weekend I took the next step in my plant obsession – I made a gorgeous terrarium. An ultra cute little garden that makes a beautiful natural ornament for my house. I feel fresher already!
Last night I turned the final pages of All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. It was a really profound read. And the strangest thing kept happening to me…every time I picked it up, and began to read, I had the sudden yearning to write. So much so, that for the first time, I started to write a book review long before I’d finished it.
Throughout most of my childhood, I had been told I had an ‘old soul’. I grew up around a lot of adults, had a lot of personal responsibility as a teenager, and (so my mother tells me) took on the challenges of burgeoning adulthood with a maturity far beyond my years. So it’s a little bit ironic, really, that I now quite enjoy partaking in a few more ‘childish’ activities.
So…how exactly does one write a book review?
It’s here, it’s here! School is finally back!
And like all good little teachers, I am more concerned with how my classroom is decorated than how prepared I am lesson plan wise. I don’t usually post much school-related stuff (other than complaining about how little time I have for everything else!) but I couldn’t help but get excited about this up and coming year.
What an exciting day!
A beautiful occasion for an even more beautiful mother-to-be.
In July, my close friend Danielle told us that she and her partner, Dan, were expecting their first baby together. To say I was excited was an understatement. When I found out it was going to be a girl…well, let’s just say that I may have gone to the shops and broken the bank on girly gifts.
So it has occurred to me that I’ve not been taking this blogging business very seriously this past month or so, letting ‘life’ get in the way of putting energy into writing – and that’s not what I set out to do when I started this blog.
