Zero Waste Challenge: Day 4

After the fiasco that was yesterday, I was determined to do better today. I’m also relieved that today was a work from home day.

Month in Review {Feb}

It’s been a bit of a mixed month personally. Reading-wise, I’ve read some really great books, but I also had three DNFs and I’m still struggling through one for my Book Dragon Challenge! My Goodreads challenge for 2019 is 60 books. So far, I’ve read 26 - so I’m way ahead of schedule! Though, to… Continue reading Month in Review {Feb}
