Hello my friends. Sorry I've been gone so long. I had a really tough first trimester. Some pregnant mommies are radiant baby making machines. I, on the other hand, spent eight weeks a total hot mess. Not even the ginger I mentioned before helped. Thankfully I'm slowly returning to me and I have to say it feels so good to be eating, laughing, daydreaming, imagining, and even reading again. Cue Nina Simone's Feeling Good.
How are you? Any changes? Any amazing reads I must get to? Any delicious little ways you've been enjoying summer?
I'm currently grateful for the little raspberry sized baby growing inside me. Yup! I'm 8 weeks pregnant!
For ginger capsules. Praise God. They're working miracles on my all-day nausea. I promise sweet peas, I'll be back to visiting blogs more regularly soon. My tummy hasn't been able to tolerate focusing on computer screens for too long.
It is a truth, universally acknowledged, that all fans of Pride and Prejudice must try the 1995 BBC miniseries. While I very much liked it, I am however faced with something I've been wondering for years.
Why do some women love Colin Firth?
My imaginary bestie Mindy Kaling said of it, "All women love Colin Firth: Mr. Darcy, Mark Darcy, George VI—at this point he could play the Craigslist Killer and people would be like, "Oh my God, the Craigslist Killer has the most boyish smile!"

So help me understand it. What is it about him? Other than the accent of course. That part I totalllly get.
I finally joined Instagram. I know I know I'm always late to the game. I blame my smartphone. I pretty much LOVE taking pictures with it. I also LOVE browsing all the gorgeous nature photography on Instagram. So here is what I've found so far, most folks crosspost on Twitter and Instagram. I totally get that but I don't love seeing the repeats. So I've been thinking, if one of my friends is a big crossposter, I might follow them on one or the other instead of both.
