Reading | The Secret Life of Violet Grant. I actually just finished this book, and I loved it! It’s my second out of three Schuyler sister books by Beatriz Williams, and I really enjoy how the author writes. I highly recommend it! I think I’m about to start reading Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. Have any of you read it? It looks interesting! I’ve also been flipping through lots of wonderful travel magazines lately.
Trying | To get up early every day. I’ve been pretty good about getting up early on weekdays (see a typical weekday for me here), but it never gets easier because I “reset” my body clock each weekend by getting way too much sleep. I’ve always wanted to be a morning person, but I’ve never been able to naturally wake up early. I think the only way I’ll be able to do that is if I stop sleeping in on the weekends. Does anyone have any tips on that? It’s just so hard when you don’t have to be up for anything in particular.
Hoping | To make the most out of the next two weekends at home. Once those are over, it’s a whirlwind of packed (but so fun!) weekends ahead. I need to get home projects and blogging done and not let the free time slip away from me.
Decorating | My apartment for fall soon. I love putting out the fall decorations, and I especially love my fall candles! Also, I recently hung up ten travel prints from a Rifle Paper Company calendar on my living room wall, and I love what they add to the room!
To-do listing | Things to get done at work. I have a huge deadline next week, and I have so much to get done before it! Each year the work ends up getting done, but I never know how it will before it does. Can’t wait for it to be over!
