15 Books in 2015

***Made this into a post so that I can use the "What I'm Reading Page" for my 2016 list!*** I have decided to be intentional with reading books.  If I have a list and a deadline I hope it will help me to get more into books than my iphone. If I have spare time I want to pick up a book rather than waste time scrolling through things that don't really matter much, and that I instantly forget about. The books I have chosen so far are some I have read and loved, some new books that have struck my fancy, some that were recommended, and some classics that I have been meaning to read for years. (I'm looking at you Anne Shirley.) Here they are in no particular order, and I'll cross them off as I go! Some of them are already started and read to varying degrees, so that will help. I didn't want to be too ambitious! So we'll see how this goes.  I will probably change my choices as I go, if some books come up that I am in the mood to read, or if I'm n


Spring that feels more like summer...springer? I'm digging it! The wildflowers mentioned below are planted in this heart...I love this quirky flower bed! Hoping this will all be flourishing one day!

Anna also loves watering...everything. Including herself!  13 mornings left! Until the due date anyways! Where I am at right now is feeling very excited, but not wanting to rush anything. I am dying to meet this baby, I'm so curious! But I also know life is abo

Anna Lately: 22 Months

I might add more words tomorrow, but for right now I am going to do this in the form of a photo dump. Mostly for my future self to look back on and see how small and cute she was, since she is going to seem huge when the baby comes, but in reality, she will never ever be this young again! This is Anna's annoyed with me face... It's still funny to me! She is going to love her sibling! Love her rosy cheeks. Starting to focus more on colouring and stickers. Really loves her Uncle Lane! Loves playing with her cousins, was asking for Reggie for days after we babysat him! After every bath she has to have her "dress".  Her face when you ask her to smile. Started being obsessed with a soother. Had I known this would have happened I wouldn't have let her play with them! I had one in with her doll stuff.  Loves dancing and watching herself in the mirror. Watching a show with Dad, he's her favourite! Nothing swe
