Ever since graduating from nursing school in May of 2015, I have been incessantly adding books to my ‘to-read’ list and reading as much as possible. It feels amazing to curl up on my couch with a soft blanket and a good book and not have to worry about studying for the NCLEX or my latest nursing exam. As much as I loved learning to become a nurse, the elation I feel for not having to read another college text book…..ahhhhh. It make me anxious just thinking about it!

Reading for pleasure has been one of my favorite hobbies since I learned the alphabet. I absorbed words like a sponge, and that voracious appetite for books has never left. Now that I am an adult, daily life makes it hard to sit down and read like I want to. But that will change this year!

Without further ado, my own personal reading challenge for 2016!

This is the second year in our first home, and the first time I was really able to decorate our front porch for the holidays! We have a good size space, and I had to reign in my Christmas spirit before our porch just looked like a storage room for decorations. Before the fianz (for some reason, since getting engaged, I like to refer to my honey as “the fianz”, so if you ever see that in my posts, I am referring to him- until we make it official, of course) and I moved into this house, I never decorated much for the holidays; mostly due to living situation. Now that we own this home, I’m going all out for every holiday. Now to figure out storage for all this stuff—that could probably be a post all in itself! Anywho…here it is! Our Christmas porch 🙂

Blogger. Such a loaded word. I’ve tried to trick myself into thinking that because I have a blog and a website, I can apply that term to myself, but I know that is not true. I haven’t even started yet 😉 I have big plans for this blog, and can’t wait to gain my “sea legs” with this whole blogging thing! There are so many bloggers I follow for inspiration and motivation, and I look forward to the day when I am on that level.
More to come!
