I'm reading...

Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo. I was not expecting this book to be in poem format but nonetheless, I am loving it. It's beautifully written and quite heart-wrenching but I am excited to follow the two young women whose perspectives are exhibited as they learn of their fathers passing and have yet to learn one another exists!

Last book I read: In A Holidaze by Christina Lauren

Let's be book buds on Good Reads!

I'm snacking on...

Cookies. Chocolate. Cookies. And more chocolate. My house is filled with goodies from neighbors, friends, and family as a way to show their love during the holidays. I'm not complaining at all, but I'm stuffed to the gills with rich sweets and now have an intense craving for just like...raw vegetables. 

BUT I did make an eggplant caponata on Christmas day that was *chefs kiss* delightful! Here's the recipe I used. I used half the amount of sugar and I found it to be perfect.

I'm grateful for...

Holiday Rom-Coms. I'm a sucker, I admit it but I will not apologize for my obsession with setting the scene to watch two dumb characters fall in-love and make me cry.

This month of December has been a month of lots of Ciara-time for me...Ciara. Ha. After finishing finals and working during the day, I love pouring a bold red wine, lighting a candle, getting in my coziest PJs and putting on a rom-com. My favorites were The Holiday, When Harry Met Sally, Operation Christmas Drop, and Happiest Season (!!!!!! SO GOOD).

ALL OF US! DaNg, 2020! Anything else?? I know January 1st will not be the end of the mayhem we have endured this year. COVID-19 will not go away, racism will not go away. There is still so much work to be done (voting in Georgia, for one) but still - 2020 just will forever be stained with negativity. 

We made it through. It might not have been easy as lives were taken at the hands of a pandemic and jobs were lost but if you're reading this - I am proud of you and we will make it through.
