Just a brief post today to let you know that one of my favorite annual blogging events is taking place this week! 5 Fall Favorites is a bloghop/book recommendation party hosted by Rebekah Morris at Read Another Page.

We're nearing the halfway point for the semester (at least at my university), and I have to say that so far this is shaping up to be the most challenging semester so far regarding scheduling. One class (the one I sometimes refer to as "the straightforward... Continue Reading →
Happy Friday and first day of October! If you're viewing this post in your email or the WordPress Reader, I hope you'll stop by the blog itself at least briefly to see the seasonal banner I put up. I had a lot of fun making a handful of seasonal banners last year during some of... Continue Reading →
