2020 Book Challenge

So I'm going to push myself this next year. I chose 20 books that I have purchased, been given, or heard about and just want to read to read in 2020 (with 3 bonus books... you know in case I find more spare time). And I invite you to join me. Push yourself to read anything and everything. I put no stipulations on what book or topics you have to read other that your goal has to be at least 5 books. You can't start the books on your list before January 1, 2020 and you have to finish by December 31, 2020.  

Where Does the Time Go?

Yesterday I started to tackle our office. This room not only acts as an office, but is a catch all room. If we don't know where to put something or don't have time to put things away they get tossed in this small room to be dealt with when the room gets overwhelmingly crowded and I decide it's time to do something about it. I gathered up all the loose papers, old mail and pulled out the filing cabinet and started sorting months of important papers, tossing the junk mail and creating a pile of things that need my attention.

Grieving the Past, Hoping for the Future

Today I would like to talk about a very personal struggle I have had in my adulthood. While I actually find that most conversations around this topic are deep and meaningful, there is also a stigma about it and I am cautious to bring it up. Ian and I have suffered multiple miscarriages. It is hard and sad and I am not looking for pity, but am wanting to open the conversation up for those going through similar pain.
