New Beginnings!(7)

June has been one of the happiest months this year, maybe in my entire life. There have been bad days, they are inevitable, but the vibes have been lovely for the most part.


  • I started up this blog! I’m still finding my way through this new community.  Everyone has been so nice and supportive so far, I couldn’t be more thankful.
  • I tried out some photography! I’ve always been interested in cameras and such and this month I finally had the opportunity to use a professional camera.  I’ve mostly taken bookish pictures but I have some scenery pics and sunsets.  Easy going stuff.
  • I won two giveaways! One was a book of my choice from TBD; I chose This Savage Song by V.E. Schwab.  The second one was two ARCs of An Ember in the Ashes and it’s upcoming sequel A Torch Against the Night.  I can’t wait to read them!
