The holidays are hard for most people. Add on having mental health issues it makes it 100% worse. Holiday's are notorious for being fast-paced. The lack of sleep, cold weather, and chaos can bring anyone down. I tend to miss family members that are no longer here this time of year too. The grief can become crippling at times. Also, I miss my family members in other states that can't celebrate with me. The bottom line is the holidays are hard but also wonderful at the same time.

I love Christmas. Gift-giving is one of my favorite things to do. Little but cute gifts inside stockings are always super fun. Some of the best gifts that I have ever gotten have come from my stockings each year.
Christmas is just around the corner and it's so exciting. I feel like it was just Christmas last year. The year is just flying by. Lately, I have been in the Christmas mood and this girl has already created a new Christmas inspired playlist!
If you are a blogger and haven't utilized Pinterest to drive traffic to your blog.... you are missing out. Pinterest is one of the main sites that I use for site exposure and traffic. Every single month, it outways every other social media site for driving traffic to my blog. I honestly don't know what I would do without Pinterest when it comes to blogging.
This October marked two years of having my very own place. I cannot believe how fast the time has gone. When I moved out of my family's house... I had a lot of shopping that I had to do in order to feel comfortable in my very own place all by myself. This was the first time that I would have no roommates. (other than my dog)
A couple weeks ago... I started a new challenge The Goodreads Clean Up Challenge. It was super successful. In the fact that I was able to start cleaning up my Goodread's shelf.

It's getting colder in Pennsylvania. In fact, there is a chance of snow flurries this week. I go back to Arizona on the 13th and I am super sad. It's still in the 80s back at home. It's kind of ridiculous if you ask me. It's time to go back though... I have been gone since the end of September and frankly, I have tons of book mail and packages waiting for me to sort through. Getting mail is always exciting. I also miss my own bed.
Since being on the east coast, there's been a lot of rainy days lately. I am not used to it since I live in the desert in Phoenix, Arizona.

It's Halloween as I am sitting here writing this post. I have nothing exciting planned for the day. There's a tornado warning for Eastern Pennsylvania tonight with wind gusts up to 50 mph! This girl is staying under the covers with her little Shih Tzu. I have never been the partier anyways. Being out in the country, my Grandparents never get trick or treaters. That's the only downside to being out in the middle of nowhere... you don't get to see all the little cute kids in costumes.
