Adventures and Victories Week 11

Another crazy week under my belt in this new year. Tell me, is the weather as crazy where you are as it is here? We’ve been rocketing back and forth between 30 and 60 degrees since Christmas. My poor head is begging for a stable climate! Oh well. On to this week’s adventures and victories. Minor Victory: I created a new bullet journal design for my daily page. It's simpler and so much faster to create. I love making fancy pages when I have time, but too often I don't. I'm loving this new super simple page since it works the exactly the same as my fancier page. If you're interested in bullet journals--which I love because I can track my ENTIRE [...]

Adventures and Victories Week 8

Happy new year everyone! Can you believe it's 2017? I don't know about you, but I'm pretty stoked for this year. I've got some big plans, the first of which is launching my YA travel novel, Sketchy Tacos, on February 7--almost one month away! I could not be more excited... I may have even made my entire family sweat shirts with the book cover. Just sayin'. Well, enough about future adventures and victories! On to this week: Victory: I finished my first draft of the International Adventures Book 2 outline. Currently titled Saucy Schnitzel... maybe? Seriously I would love name suggestions. (Adjective preferably ending in a Y) + (some kind of traditionally German food)??? No idea. Adventure: I'm trying Medium for the [...]

Adventures and Victories Week 7

How was everyone's Christmas? We had a lovely time with family! We ate lots of good food, played games, chatted, and generally had loads of fun! This year we've added another minister to the family, so most our traditions got a bit shook up. What's your favorite transition? Victory: I managed to stay stress-free during the holidays. Between crazy schedules and unforeseen sickness, it was at times a bit mad, but I kept my calm all the way through. Adventure: I got an amazing new game called Viticulture! I'd played it once with friends 8+ months back, so I had to relearn it from scratch. It is one of the most games I've played in a long time and it's [...]

Adventures and Victories: Week 4

It's been a hectic week, where I've felt as if my wheels have been spinning non-stop, but I haven't gotten a lot done. This could be because I always over-plan my day and then when I can't accomplish it all (surprise, surprise) I don't feel like I've gotten enough done. I'll need to work on that. But that feeling is all the more reason that I'm glad I do this post. It's the perfect reminder of all the things that went right this week! Adventure: I've started bullet journaling! I'm so excited. It's been so much fun checking out all the amazing Pinterest pins and fabulous articles around the blog-o-sphere. I'm starting really simple, because those gorgeous, elaborate journals take [...]
