April Wrap-Up!

April Wrap Up

I don’t know about you, but we had quite a cold, snowy April in the northeast. Winter just didn’t seem to understand that it was time to move over for Spring.

February Reads

Here we are, a full week into February already! I can’t believe how quickly the weeks are flying by in 2018. January was a great month for me.

Added bonus: I’m reading it from sunny Arizona, getting a much needed break from winter in the northeast. In today’s post, I will recap my January reads and share my reading plans for February, all while sending sunny vibes your way!
