GReads! Interrupted: Hello 2014!

Sometimes I want to share things with my followers that aren't necessarily a book review, so I thought I'd create a sporadic feature on my blog to do just that.  GReads! Interrupted. is a personal reflection of me -- music I'm listening to, something I recently purchased & want to show off, or even just a random thought that I feel is worthy of sharing.  This is meant to be a fun break from the usual reviews + a chance for my followers to get to know me a bit more.  Hope you enjoy!

I've been listening to a lot of mellowed out music lately.  I think it's a good way to start the year, especially when I am needing some calm music to keep me sane while I jump back into the craziness of working & going to school full time.  Below I've put together a playlist of songs that make me happy.  As always, if you like what you hear, support the artist by purchasing their music, thanks!

My new year started quite nicely.  Spent the evening with family, good food, and delicious drinks.  Looking ahead at the year to come I know it's going to be a BIG one for me.  My life will be shifting and growing as I come to the end of my college career and embark on teaching.  This has been the hardest goal I've worked towards in my life, and I know when the day arrives that I accept my diploma (December, 2014!) I will be very proud and humbled.  In the meantime I've got a few more obstacles to conquer.
Had to show off the oh so cute & talented card that Estelle made for me.  I love her book inspired crafty cards!  She designed this one based on my favorite read of 2013, God-Shaped Hole by Tiffanie DeBartolo. 

Got to meet up with my friend Jess for some beers and ciders.  Sadly, we didn't take a photo together (how is that possible?? lol), but I did capture this selfie since it's rare I get dressed up these days.

And my blog wouldn't be complete without a pic of my sweet Daisy. Though she wasn't so sweet at 3am, when she woke me up because she had to go potty! Sucks getting old, haha.

How is your 2014 starting out? Got any tunes that are making a repeat on your playlists lately?  Have some news to share, or just want a place to ramble?  Feel free to in the comments below.


  1. I find I often listen to mellow tunes when I'm blogging/writing. I get too pumped up if I listen to anything else and can't sit still long enough to finish! Haha

    The Neighbourhood's got some great stuff that I'm lovin, and Chvrches is another band who's album I was really (pleasantly) surprised by.

  2. Aww, yay! You're so close to graduation and becoming a full-fledged teacher. YOU CAN DO IT! And I love the card that Estelle made for you; it's WONDERFUL!
