Everything We Keep | A Book To Read

Happy Saturday friends! Work has been SO busy with a large event coming up, which has unfortunately forced me to put my blog on hold for the time being. I will be returning to a much more regular blogging schedule after my big event is over which will be after next week.

I recently finished the book "Everything We Keep". This was a really enjoyable and light read. I stayed up until 2:30am the other night because I could not put it down. I ended up reading over half the book that night and finishing it.

The plot is quite interesting and tells the tale of a newly widowed woman. Her fiancee went on a business trip a couple of months before their wedding day and had apparently died on the trip. James, her fiancee's funeral ended up being on the day that their wedding was suppose to be held and at the same church.

This is all given away in the first few pages of the book. What happens next leads you on the road to the story of how they fell in love and then every other chapter shows you her life now, as a widow. It's a very quick read, great to have when sitting by the pool this summer!

Other Staples - peanut butter - popcorn - trail mix - …


Well, it’s official, I’m no longer a teenager, on Sunday I turned 20! So, in honor of having two decades of my life under my belt, today I am sharing twenty things I have learned in the past twenty years! Holy crap, I cannot believe how old I am, now that I am writing this post, haha!
ONE – Stay positive Over the last year specifically I have really learned that positivity is one of the most important characteristics that I want to have. When someone thinks of me, I want them to think of a positive person. Just trying to be more positive really helps me to just have a better day and to be an overall happier person in general. While the rest of this post is not in order based on importance, this is my number one thing I have learned before I turned 20!
TWO – Be grateful I have realized it’s important to take the time to remember to be extremely grateful for everything I have, you never know how long you will have something. It’s important to be grateful especially for the little things in …


Today's outfit is what I wear is a great depiction of what I would love to wear everyday, thermals, my favorite leggings, and hunters which are great for the tons of snow we have in New York. I love wearing this outfit and outfits like it to my classes and like today, to run errands. This thermal is so warm and insanely cozy!
