June. Already! Not sure how we’re in the sixth month of 2023, but summer begins this month and I am here for it.

We have a few fun things on deck this month: our church’s vacation Bible school, a trip to the Outer Banks, and gymnastics camp for Sadie. Oh, and Mordecai turns seven months old this month!

Here’s all the current things in my life. As always, share your responses to some of these prompts in the comments! (more…)


All the Books I’ve Read So Far in 2023

Well, we’re somehow about halfway through the year?! As always, I’ve been squeezing in as much reading as I can and have made it through 20 books so far.

I wanted to share all I’ve read thus far in case you’re on the hunt for a good book. I’ve read a random assortment, to be sure. Lots of books on midwifery and the Amish as well as marriage, parenting, a novel and some nonfiction.

Here’s all the books I’ve read by category because it’s truly all over the board in terms of topic. I’m also sharing the three books I’m currently reading and a small list of the books I want to read next.

Let me know what you’ve read this year in the comments as well as any recommendations you might have!
