A Blog Update and Link-Up Announcement!

There have been about a million things running through my head lately. Ideas, dreams, prayers, plans, hopes.

It's hard to take things one step at a time! I can become so easily overwhelmed. But my husband is a wonderful encourager (and much more level-headed than me). :)

Expect changes coming to the blog. Ones that I want YOU to be involved with. I'm continuing to learn about being a wife daily and I love receiving ideas, advice, and encouragement from other wives. I hope we can turn it into more of a community on this little blog - helping each other out and lifting each other up! 

That will include some design changes that are WAY overdue. Thanks for bearing with me!

After working on my Reading List 2014 post for dayyys, I decided that it was way too much. Too much for me to even think about reading, and too much for anyone to read in a blog post, that's for sure! So I decided to make it a monthly thing. That's where a link-up comes in. :)

Each month, on the first Tuesday of the month, I will post a What I'm Reading Link-up. That means that I'll tell you what I'm reading that month, what my favorite book was from the month before, and you'll have a chance to link-up your reading list if you want to. That way we can have a resource of awesome reading lists to give you book suggestions! I don't care of one person or one hundred people link up. I just love checking out the reading lists of others.

I've heard that a major way to influence or help someone is to give them a good book. Reading can seriously change your life! I think it's so important because it shapes your thoughts and teaches you new things. That's why along with the monthly What I'm Reading Link-Up I'm going to give away a book each month. All you have to do to enter is link-up your reading list or tell me what you're reading in the comments. Then I'll pick a random winner to get their choice of book from my list. :) Yay! 

There will be more details tomorrow in my first What I'm Reading Link-Up. I know it's not the first Tuesday of the month, but I can't let January slip by! 

Hope you're having a great day so far. I'm off to my first eye appointment in a few years as a non-employee, haha. I'm excited to see the doctor I used to work for! Happy Monday, y'all. :)
By the way, are you following me on on Instagram? It's by far my most personal form of social media and my faaavorite.
