Taking a Breather


Just a quick update today — in a nutshell, I’m going to be spending time with family this month so I’ll be taking a few posts off!

Normally my obsession with consistency would push me to work anyway, but I honestly can’t wait to take some time with no obligations. I’m juggling a little too much right now and I feel like my thoughts are pulling my brain in a million directions. Considering my main focus these days is writing, these kinds of thought patterns are NOT good for my creative process. 😅

So while I’m off, I’m going to focus on spending time with family, writing without pressure, and reading (I’m grippingly close to my goal of reading fifty-two books this year, but I’m going to have to buckle down to make sure I hit it!). I’ll see y’all back here for a “What I’m Loving” on Sunday because I can’t wait to tell you about the book I’m currently reading, and then I’ll be back for a post on the 16th. I definitely want to do a recap of my favorite books of the year to give everyone last minute gift ideas, so be on the lookout for that in the week before Christmas!

Until then, everyone have a lovely holiday season and please send me any pictures of your pets with Santa/at Christmas tree farms/etc. 🎄
