Summer Reading

Share It:


















Happy Memorial Day! Summer is officially upon us and this year I've given myself a goal...to read 5 novels between now and September. Now, some of you {my mom and sister....ahem!} may be laughing at this post and thinking "Five!?! I'll read five in one month!" Well...while I love a good book....I'm not a fast reader. At all. Unless it's Harry Potter, which I read in about 24 hours. I'm a highly distracted person and although the story may be fabulous, I take my time delving into it and it can sometimes take me a few weeks months to read it! So, I figure #5 is a good number to shoot for over the next 4 months!

Why these five novels, you may ask? Well, I've always enjoyed a good Nora Roberts series and the Dwyer Trilogy has been good so far. The Silkworm is from that little known writer named JK Rowling;) She's writing as Robert Galbraith and I really enjoyed her first novel The Cuckoo's Calling, so I'm gonna give Cormoran Strike another go! The Light Between Oceans comes highly recommended by my Mom. She's a voracious reader and had nothing but lovely things to say about the story. Hidden In Paris is because...well....Paris!! I adore Paris and I need something light and airy to satisfy my wanderlust! Finally, Girl On The Train is highly acclaimed and receiving really good reviews. The story sounds suspenseful and fun and I'm all about that!!!

I'll be sure to review each novel upon completion....so definitely check back! I'll be starting with The Silkworm, hope you follow along!

Stay Blessed,
Jenn

The moments in between.....

Share It:

























So, it's been a minute hasn't it? That seems to be a theme with me the past few months. Minutes. Everything has been about getting from minute to minute. I feel like I've been in a constant state of waiting and watching the clock. The majority of that waiting has been due to a change in jobs. I've been unhappy for awhile with my new job and knew it was time to move onward and upward. But the funny thing is, when you know you want to change...you want it to change right then! And that is never the way it works out, right? Right! But I'm happy to say that the waiting has paid off and I'm super excited about what the future holds for me!

I promise {promise!!} to get back to blogging on a regular basis. I've missed it so much. During this waiting period I've kept my Instagram filled with life's moments....and here is just a snippet of the past 30 days:) It's been filled with great food, good friends and family, beautiful sunsets, gorgeous spring flowers, my fur friends and my new logo! I have such grand plans for Orange Tree Square and I'm excited to start the summer next week with several new posts! So stand by!!!

Stay Blessed,
Jenn
