The Blanket Scarf, A Book Challenge, and a Wonderful Woman

One of my most frequently asked questions this fall has been about my blanket scarf. I missed the infamous Zara one so I found this similar one last fall on Amazon.   It's made in China and took about 4 weeks to arrive.  I think I spent around $30 but now it's down to $19.99 and has a few color options!  My favorite part about is that while its big it's not too thick so it's easy to wrap around and you don't get too hot. I wore it all fall, winter, and spring last year and can't wait to do it again.



I've rounded up a few of my favorites here:
In an effort to stay off social before bed I've decided to start a book challenge for myself. I want to try to read a book a week until Dec 31! I'm not sure I can swing it but I really need to jump start my reading again and thought this would be a good way. My goal is to start on Sunday and end by the following Sunday.  My first book is The Knockoff which I started this past Sunday. I'm only about 60 pages in so I have some work to do :)
Wish me luck and feel free to join along if you're up for a challenge.




Over the weekend we lost an amazing woman in our family. While we knew she would leave us one day it happened much faster than we all expected.  I've lost a lot of people in my life but this was the first person close to me I've lost in about 10 years and it's been hard. I think the hardest part is that she is the first person in my adult life that I lost that knew me, Kyle, and my boys. I feel so sad they won't remember her but I know she loved  them like her own and will be watching over them from heaven.





I will forever cherish this picture as it's the last picture I took with her before she got sick.
