Currently Crocheting and Reading and ...

Hairstyle: I hacked off my hair, everyone (not me personally, a professional did it!) - something I thought I would never do again. I really love having long hair, but change was needed and I am loving the shorter hair now that we are heading into the cooler months! So very great.
Crocheting: I have so many projects on the go right now. Between projects with a deadline (slippers and leg warmers for two different friends), projects for work (torque, two different kinds of cowls, baby leg warmers, and mittens), I find that I need that one project that has no other purpose than to be made. That is this blanket. I claimed it from my mother who made all the squares awhile ago and it is now my job to put it together. Actually, no, not job ... joy to put together. It is beautiful, it will be big, and I am very excited.

Reading: I am so very happy that I have FINALLY started to enjoy reading again. It has been way too long and all I needed was a really good book to get me going. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern was that book! A friend recommended it to me and I am so glad she did. It was captivating, I enjoy the way it was written, and I loved that a magical circus was a huge part of the story. There is so much detail in the book that I had to reread certain chapters and parts over because I didn't want to miss anything, and at first it was slightly confusing with the amount of date changing that occurred, but overall I really enjoyed this book. 

The book that I am currently reading is Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier. Another friend of mine gave me this book to pass along to someone else, but once she told me what it was about and I read the back cover, I was hooked. I don't want to give too much away, and I am still currently reading to give much of a review on it, but I do want to leave you with a insert from the back of the book, "But that joy is destroyed when her father is bewitched by the woman who has won his heart and her brothers are bound by a spell that only Sorcha can lift." There ... now you have to read it too!

Young Living: Our little family has had such a crazy and busy transition into this new semester of University life. We knew that it was going to be busy going in, but we were still caught by surprise. Luckily, my energy levels have been amazing and I felt a lot of inspiration lately, however, my anxiety and my headaches have been coming back. I have started using Stress Away almost every day on my wrists because I am so in love with the smell. (Lime, Cedarwood, Vanilla, and Lavender are some of the amazing ingredients) I find that it helps to ground me, avoid anxiety freak outs, and helps me focus on the day ahead.*

Rocks: Bug has been loving the new Rock DIY that we made together. She has been moving these rocks back and forth from table to bookshelf to car. She loves them so much.

Reading: our favourite books right now to read together have been anything Winnie the Pooh. She loves the little books that we have as she can easily carry them around with her as she walks. We also love Chicka Chicka Boom Boom & Goodnight Moon.

My Little Pony: a couple weeks ago we saw a live show of My Little Pony and ever since then, I feel like Bug has been in absolute love with her little figurines. And the show. And then we got a sticker book.
