The Sunday Post/It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

Hey, everyone!

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next. 

It's been a laid-back week work wise (only worked this weekend!), which has resulted in some fun little outings like the bay/beach, a little cafe, and the park. Despite the near constant drizzle, it was lovely! 

This face! <3 Love her.

In other, very exciting news...there's something HUGE planned for the fall and winter of this year. Huge. It's one of my biggest dreams, and I'm so damn thrilled, anxious, excited, crazy to get to it. From early October of 2016 to early January of 2017, I will be in Europe! Traveling Italy, France, Scotland, and possibly Ireland, Spain, England, Belgium, Portugal and Switzerland. I'm not really one for a set itinerary, so those last six are mostly up in the air at this point. We'll see!

There is a lot of planning involved, as you can imagine, especially because that pup up there is coming with me (my main blog and part time job is dog blogging, and she's vital to keeping my anxiety levels manageable). I'm excited for it, though! I'll probably share updates every so often on here for anyone who's curious. :)
