Month in Review: October 2018



Happy November!!! It's been a crazy month...we finally moved into our new house and while I am so happy to be out of our temporary housing situation, and I inundated with boxes! I am slowly taking my time unpacking and setting up my new digs. I am thrilled to finally be reunited with all my books :) Having them in storage for the past 5+ months was hard. I did take some with me, but of course, it was hard to know what I was going to want to read, and we had no idea how long we were going to be waiting til we got into our new place. It will take a while for me to get them out of boxes and onto bookshelves...and I think we will be building a new bookshelf in the living room - we definitely have need for it!

  2. Good to see two books I want to read in your best reads of October. Must be exciting moving into your new house, but moving is such exhausting work too. Yes to the new bookcase I am sure! I am having one built for my sitting room, the room is small but I don't care, I need the shelves!
