Currently: October 2020

Welcome to October! I’m not sure how it’s fall and the tenth month of 2020, but here we are. Also, want to hear something crazy? This month marks ten years of blogging for me. 

Carnegie Library

Here’s a look at what’s currently going on in my life this month! 

Current book Still working my way through Midnight Sun and Sadie has been enjoying the Gerda Muller Seasons Collection that my blogging friend Grace gave her for her birthday! Thank you, Grace 🙂

Current excitement Celebrating Sadie’s birthday with our families. We’re having a little get-together with immediate family tomorrow and I’m really looking forward to it!

Current joy The everyday moments of life. Going to the library with Sadie, taking Niva on a walk, snuggling with Malcolm on the couch, sitting next to Jimmy at church. Such blessings!

Current indulgence Taking a nap while Sadie is napping. It doesn’t happen often, maybe once a week, but it’s always refreshing to get in a power nap every once in a while 🙂

Current food Butternut squash soup. I’ve been using this recipe for years and love how simple it is.

Current feelings Sad our garden is on its last leg but excited for this season and the upcoming holidays. 

Current cuteness Niva sleeping in our backyard. The weather has been cooling off here in Pittsburgh and she is loving it.

Current baked good I’m really wanting to pick up some molasses so I can bake these or just some good ‘ol ginger snaps. 

Current beauty product This leave-in conditioner has been making my hair so soft. 

Current drink I usually buy Sadie Juicy Juice in the fruit punch flavor at the store and always steal some from her because it’s so good. Also loving this coffee, as always. 

Current laugh I was at the grocery store the other day while Sadie was napping and checked on her via our baby monitor and found this adorable scene.

Current craving A trip with Jimmy. We haven’t gone on a trip just the two of us since before Sadie was born and I’ve been dreaming of a little one-night getaway!

Current goal As always, going through our belongings and donating what we no longer use and then organizing what is left over. 

Current confession I’ve been looking at Christmas decorations. I may or may not have picked up a few holiday-esque things at Dollar Tree the other day. Are you a “it’s too early to think of Christmas” person or a “yay! Christmas!” person?

Current blessing This may sound weird, but the joy of passion. Just being creative and having ideas and doing things is such a blessing, you know?

Tell me something current in your life!



  1. I currently love spending as much time as possible with all 3 of my beautiful granddaughters. I love all of the pic in your blog ~ especially the b & w of Sadie in the library. She’s such a happy lil girl. She and jimmy in the crib is hilarious!!! Also- let me know when you and Jimmy want to get away, and dad and I will be here to take Sadie 🥰🥰🥰

  2. Have a lovely birthday party with Sadie. 🙂 It’s great that you take her on library trips — I’m sure she’ll grow up to be a keen reader!

    Something current in my life… lots of October walks and enjoying the changing season, and snuggling up with a book when it gets dark.

  3. Wow…10 years of blogging?! And the same type of blog too! It’s stood the test of time, congrats!!

    I’ve been blogging that long as well, but have gone through 4 blogs over that time 🤣

    1. It really has stood the test of time and all the craziness of my life, haha! I can’t believe it! I totally remember your previous blogs! At least you have been consistent about blogging over the past ten years!

  4. Oh 100% “yay Christmas” over here! 😉 Also, congratulations on a decade of blogging! That’s awesome! 🙂
