Even with all the hustle and bustle, I was able to read quite a few books through the holidays and the first of the year. I mostly read Christmas stories to help get me into the holiday spirit. "The Immortal Nicholas" was my favorite of the stories as it ties to Biblical history as well. Surprisingly, "Gone Girl" was another one of my favorites. Normally mysteries are not my go-to but I really enjoyed it.

Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher
Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella
Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella
Blue Christmas by Mary Kay Andrews
A Christmas to Remember by Hope Ramsay
Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand
Starry Night by Debbie Macomber
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
The Immortal Nicholas by Glenn Beck

This time of year is fondly known as "busy season" in our house. KJB and I are heavily involved in a ministry that keeps us active three evenings a week and all day on Saturdays. While the ministry is incredibly rewarding, it is somewhat exhausting. During the spring semester I also teach a course at the university. Teaching has always been an interest of mine, so I really enjoy that, but it does take up a substantial amount of time, in addition to my regular day job.

Funny enough, I haven't been watching too much. Since my evenings are pretty busy, the only thing I've been watching is my favorite show The Good Doctor and planning videos on YouTube. In addition to that, Moana is my new favorite Disney movie, I've watched it a couple of times the past few months. The music is so powerful and uplifting!

This winter has been colder than the last several, so sweaters have been my absolute go-to. This gorgeous blue number from Loft is so bright and cozy. I loved the color so much I matched my nails to it for a couple weeks. Another go-to is my new Stella and Dot layering necklace, the Natia. The gold and white makes it go with everything and I love the fact you can wear it different ways.
