    Hey, everyone! How’s your day going? I hope your week is going well so far and you’re enjoying that lovely sunshine outside. The first month of Casually Christiana Book Club is done and we’re onto the next month! WOW. It’s a little scary how fast the time is going.

  • All We Ever Wanted – Casually Christiana Book Club Review

    Hi everyone! It’s the end of the month (how is that even possible), but I’m excited to share my thoughts from the #ccbookclub selection for July! July’s pick was All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin, and I definitely wasn’t disappointed with it. As I mentioned in Casually Christiana Book Club – July Selection, I’m a big Giffin fan.

    The exciting news is HERE – Casually Christiana is launching a BOOK CLUB! That’s right! Once a month, I will choose a book for us to read and share some prompts on my blog to think about along the way. And if you don’t finish the book by the end of the month – that’s ok!

  • What I Read + What I’m Reading

    Hello, everyone! I hope you’re enjoying your summer and taking advantage of the summer weather. It’s almost August… and before we know it, it will be fall. I know, I know, it’s still July. But I would be lying if I told you I wasn’t excited for fall, the crisp leaves and the cool air. Don’t get me wrong – I still love summer just as much. Any Nicholas Sparks fans out there?! Well, I am a HUGE fan of his. Recently, I finished reading The Longest Ride, and boy did I loved it. Once I finished the book, I immediately wanted to read it again and again… and again. That’s one of…

  • Happy May

    WOW. I feel like it’s been forever since I last wrote a blog, even though it’s only been a little over a week. I try to post 2-3 times a week, but sometimes, I just don’t have the time.

Next week is my last week and I will officially be done with my first year! I am in the process of writing a great blog highlighting my first year that I will post when…
