Happy December and Merry Christmas! It's only just beginning to sink in that Christmas is around the corner. Now that my Christmas break is here, I'm trying to watch all the Christmas movies I can and listen to as much Christmas music as possible in hopes that it will begin to feel like December before… Continue reading Poetry Corner: What Christmas is All About
Thanksgiving has been on my mind lately because, well, Thanksgiving is this Thursday. In conjunction with that, I've also been thinking about social media. I've read several blogs, it seems like, that discuss how social media often breeds discontent because people compare their own lives, accomplishments, and possessions with those of others. Seen from the… Continue reading Instagram-ing Thanksgiving
It seems that Valentine's Day is the event which will resurrect my blog. Only, my blog wasn't dead...just hibernating for a little while. I've written a lot about Valentine's Day in the past. For example, I wrote about how much I love Valentine's Day. Another time, I wrote about mine and my sister's nerdy Valentine's… Continue reading 7 Lovely Love-Songs for Valentine’s Day
It's nearly half-way through October, and I haven't mentioned a thing about Halloween. This year has sped by, and it's so shocking to realize that Christmas really is just around the corner.

After working all day, I became preoccupied with rearranging my bedroom. After some great finds from Hobby Lobby, I was ready to redecorate my walls (which are now filled with dozens of… Continue reading A Nerdy Valentine
So, this is the month of the wondrous St. Valentine, who--although he has a holiday dedicated to him--has no reliable history anywhere available on the Internet (that I can locate). I had these big plans to quickly look up the history of Valentine's Day and to share my discoveries with you all, but my plans… Continue reading For the Love of Valentine’s Day
Tomorrow's Christmas Eve, and I can hardly believe it. Christmas sort of crept up on me this year, so these past couple days I've been plugging in my Christmas tree lights whenever possible, and playing Christmas music at every available moment. I've realized that I don't have much time left to enjoy these things before… Continue reading Christmas Wishes!
Over the past month of writing Thanksgiving posts, I have realized that I am extremely thankful for books. Without them, my life as I know it would not exist. This statement might seem a bit drastic, but the more I think about it, the more true it seems to be. Without the existence of books,… Continue reading Thankful for: BOOKS!
I originally wasn't planning to write this, but--seeing as today is the second snow day I've had this season (yesterday being the first), I would like to express my gratitude for snow days and the little unexpected break from work: Thank you, Lord, for snow days! Usually I'm not too fond of cold weather, and… Continue reading Thankful for: Snow Days!
