Pictures from the last month!

We are going to call this a camera roll diary! If you were scrolling through my phone pictures, this is what you'd find. (Minus a million Etsy shots...)

Monogrammed Masks
My sweet mom in law made Blake and I some reusable masks, and I'm so grateful! We kept mixing them up, so I threw a little monogram on each one. So very 2020!

Plot: From Goodreads: When Type-A Manhattan lawyer Dannie Cohan is asked this question at the most important interview of her career, she has a meticulously crafted answer at the ready. Later, after nailing her interview and accepting her boyfriend's marriage proposal, Dannie goes to sleep knowing she is right on track to achieve her five-year plan.

But when she wakes up, she’s suddenly in a different apartment, with a different ring on her finger, and beside a very different man. The television news is on in the background, and she can just make out the scrolling date. It’s the same night—December 15—but 2025, five years in the future.

After a very intense, shocking hour, Dannie wakes again, at the brink of midnight, back in 2020. She can’t shake what has happened.
What I Liked: Oh gosh, this book was so emotional! I was expecting a romance, and it was more of a story of friendship. How the dream plays out in reality is so well done and I enjoyed this book a lot!
What I Didn't Like: While the emotional roller coaster is well done, it's pretty intense. 
Rating: 5 Stars

Love these bags! They last a long time, but it was time to add a few more to our collection. We use them for storing leftover foods mostly, but we have used them for traveling also. They wash well! 

I use washable cotton pads for my day to day skincare routine, but I don't want to use the washable pads for removing nail polish. So, I buy a bag of cotton rounds for that every once in a while. These will last forever. Organic cotton too, which is nice.
