    Book Review: Sketchy Tacos by Meg D. Gonzalez

    Hello lovely readers and followers! Today I am writing a book review for a wonderful blogger and author, Meg D. Gonzalez.  Meg was kind enough to send me a free copy of her latest book, Sketchy Tacos, for an honest review. Summary Sketchy Tacos is a young adult novel that centers on Mila Gulick, a teen sketch artist who takes a summer trip to Mexico in order to learn about the culture and language–and to get away from her overbearing mother. While staying with her host family, Mila makes both friends and enemies. She also gets entangled in a love triangle, and must learn to be independent as she finds her…

    Her Angel Butterfly

    Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! Today is Day 15 of The 30 Day Blog Challenge. Today’s Topic: Something that you miss. To be honest, I am crying right now as I think about how much I miss my Grandma Jean. I know she’s not a “thing,” but she is someone who means the world to me. She is with Jesus now, and I am so glad. But I’m also human, which means I still love and miss her. I miss how she used to sing cute songs with me when I was little. I miss how she taught me my times tables the summer before the third grade. It…

    Handwriting and Hypotonia~Day 9 of The 30 Day Blog Challenge

    Hello lovely readers and followers! Welcome back to Day 9 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge! Today’s Topic: A Picture of Your Handwriting My Handwriting Isn’t it glorious? This is a snapshot of my notes from my Human Services class. My handwriting is actually pretty good here (although that wasn’t my intention). I know what you’re probably thinking: wow, if that’s her good handwriting, what does her bad handwriting look like? Basically, my average/bad handwriting looks like some form of elementary cursive mixed with chicken scratch. Not bad enough to be a doctor, but not pretty enough to write cute notes for Instagram either. I always struggled with handwriting as…

    The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly~Day 2 of The 30 Day Blog Challenge

    (Image Source) Hello lovely readers and followers! Welcome back to Day 2 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge.  Today’s Topic: Emily–The good, the bad, and the ugly. That’s quite a lot to write about yourself in one post, but I think I can do it in a poem! “Emily–The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” I am bad. My sins running red With every lie I’ve ever told And every part of myself I’ve tried to destroy.   I am ugly. My body never good enough For any magazine in the country Or the accusers in my mind.   I am good. Because my Creator made me with His hands…

    What, Why, and Where I Write~Day 1 of The 30 Day Blog Challenge

      (Image Source) Happy New Year lovely readers and followers! I needed some blogging motivation for this month, so I decided to partner with Courtney of 1Timothy4:12Girl for the 30 Day  Blog Challenge! Every day will feature a new post, which will help you get to know me more as I connect with you on a deeper level! So what do I write? Well, I obviously blog, but my writing life didn’t start there. I guess it really started in elementary school when I wrote my own “episode” of Ed Edd n Eddy (the best TV show ever), where the Eds met aliens down in their cul-de-sac sewer system.  I know, I’m…
