Goodbye 2019

Hey Everyone.

I can’t believe that it is already time to write this post. How in the world is 2019 almost over? Where did this year go?

Last year I wrote this post at the end of the year, I shared some of the books and songs that I enjoyed and some of the highlights of my year. That isn’t really what I want to do this year, but I want to write something and share somethings with you all. So let’s just see how it goes!


I read a lot this year, over 300 books according to Goodreads. I read some great books and some terrible books. I found new authors and new books by my favorite authors. My love of reading and books has not diminished at all and if anything has continued to grow.

Music and singing have become a bigger part of my life this past year somehow. For most of my life we have had music playing almost constantly in the background of our life. Different albums of music seem to signify different seasons of our life.

Over the past few years I have been finding my own music and listening to it on my own. Every year I expand the music I listen to, finding new (to me) artists and falling in love with different songs. This year my love and appreciation for and fascination with music, specifically singing and different people’s’ voices has really grown and I hope it continues to grow.

I’ve spent hours and hours in the kitchen over this year. It was a lot of the same things made over and over again, but I did try some new recipes. One fun thing that we made was foil packs! They were delicious and really fun to make. I cooked more potatoes then I could ever count and still love them. Chocolate is still one of my favorite things and so are apples.

My family went through some hard stuff, just like everyone else, but things are good now. Having the difficult and sometimes horrible times helps us to appreciate the good and happy times. I am so thankful for my family, all of my siblings and my parents.

Blogging this school year has shifted from what it was last year. I’m not posting as regularly, but I still enjoy it. I”m still trying to figure out where I am going with it. I’ve posted lots of pictures and reviewed a bunch of books. I haven’t gained many new followers and I’m okay with that, it isn’t my goal any more and that has changed my perspective of blogging and what I post.


Well, there you have it, a bit of a recap of sorts of my year. I hope that it wasn’t to torturous to read. 😀

I would love to hear about your year! What are some highlights or things you have learned?
