What Happened This Month?

1. I got co-bloggers! In case you missed it, In Wonderland has an amazing team of bloggers right now! I’m also doing a giveaway with the welcome post, HERE!
2. Christmastime <3 I’m not sure if you all know this, but the Christmas season is one of my favorite seasons! I love getting together with the families and all of our friends and eating lots of food and just enjoying everything! Plus, we got to meet one of our newest additions! One of Joe’s cousins had her baby earlier this month and I got to meet him and he is so precious and so tiny! <3
3. I plotted out a couple of my projects for a fake NaNo that I’m participating in with my writing buddies in January. I wrote a post about it and asking if any of YOU wanted to join, HERE <3

What Happened This Month?

1. I started my first big-girl, full-time job! While terrifying and stressful the first week, I’m really loving it so far. I also read the entire book I was required to read and discuss with my coworkers. We’re supposed to finish it by the end of the school year as a group buuuuut, I just read the whole thing anyway.
2. Despite catching a cold, I had an amazing Christmas full of books and book related gifts. Most notably, my family scoured the earth to find me a Legend of Zelda T-shirt. My best friend bought me a 221B key necklace, honoring our joint obsession with Sherlock Holmes. And, last but certainly not least, my grandparents gave me an Amazon Kindle!
3. Through some Christmas miracle, I received a Truthwitch ARC and have yet to let it out of my sight.
4. I started co-blogging with 6 of the most amazing ladies! 🙂
