Things I’m Loving Lately

Hello friends! In New York City, after a weekend of an almost endless torrential downpour, we finally have blue skies with bright green trees again. My last post was about the lovely world of Avonlea and how our world has lost some of its beauty. Which means it was very serious. So I figured a … Continue reading Things I’m Loving Lately

How I read War and Peace

So how did I do it? How did I manage to read War and Peace this year? Honestly, I have a few answers and a million thoughts about Tolstoy’s greatest work. So let’s begin! How did I read War and Peace? I had a few things in my favor. The biggest one was TIME. If … Continue reading How I read War and Peace

a story on friendship: a trip to New Haven

I haven’t felt excitement like that thrumming through me since Israel.  Post-grad is weird like that. If you’re lucky, you live in the same city as your friends, but if you’re not, you see your friends as trains passing you by, stopping briefly for a moment to catch your breath. Not being the lucky sort, … Continue reading a story on friendship: a trip to New Haven

Documenting Your Life ft. a book crawl in NYC

I miss it. I look back on old blog posts where I’ve shown you a little peek into my life. The people who surrounded me, the fun activities I was up to, or even where I was walking that day. I have plenty of blog posts that detail a day in my life or a … Continue reading Documenting Your Life ft. a book crawl in NYC

little joys for all my days

Hi friends! Sorry for going MIA on you these past few weeks. Life’s been weird and frankly, I got hit with writer’s block that this space got a little hard to return to. On Sunday, I curled up next to a fire in my backyard reading the third Mitford book while drinking a cup of … Continue reading little joys for all my days

books + the things i’ve learned from them vol. 2

This year, especially after graduating, I’ve been reading A TON. I’ve been reading instead of scrolling and sometimes instead of doing job applications. Reading has always been (even more so now) an escape for me. A haven away from the concerns of life. And though I’ve never wanted to become a book blogger, I love … Continue reading books + the things i’ve learned from them vol. 2

The Pull of Staying Rooted

I’ve always been drawn to the idea of staying rooted. I only started to notice this idea last September, when I got away for 24 hours (you can read about that lovely trip here) and I started praying to be deeply rooted in Christ. Two weeks ago, I was walking around downtown Montreal and saw … Continue reading The Pull of Staying Rooted

books and songs of spring 2022

Well, folks, we are back. And by we, I mean me! Yes, I sometimes speak about myself in the plural. It’s not any less weird than someone speaking about themselves in the third person. I did this last spring and of course, it’s a recurring series on the blog, so I could not resist doing … Continue reading books and songs of spring 2022
