  1. Looks like you had a pretty decent reading month! And how are you liking Crazy Ex GF? It’s one of my favorites and I love seeing other folks watching it. ❤️ Also, thanks for featuring my post (and for using my pronouns; this is actually the first time I’ve actually seen them used since realizing I needed to try them, and feels good, feels organic). ❤️

  2. I’m reading the Laura Ingalls Wilder books right now with my kids and it’s so fun to re-read them as an adult. Totally different perspective from when I first read them! Are you going to re-read the whole series?

    1. I’m hoping to! I definitely found the first to be such a comforting re-read and think it would be fun to continue. Hope your kids are enjoying them! 🙂
