September was the month we celebrated our six year wedding anniversary! For some reason, this one feels like a big one to me. It’s neither a multiple of five (which always seems to be a milestone), or a year of huge accomplishment. But, six years is exciting because we’re onto another multipe of five year milestone. Does that make sense? :) It does to me. On Saturday we were at a family wedding and while talking to one of Jeff’s sisters I mentioned that we had been together for nine years total and Jeff couldn’t believe it. I don’t know if it was shock at the amount of time we had been together or shock that we started dating when we were teenagers and now we’re in our late twenties. Regardless, I’m so excited to be in our seventh year of marriage!
Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children I picked this book up on a whim because I was attracted to the colorful cover and rich texture of the pages and it was luck of the draw because it’s now one of my all time favorite books, ever. The story premise focuses on a young boy named Jacob whose grandfather told him stories about these peculiar children he grew up with. Jacob didn’t believe the stories to be true until he went on a quest to find out for himself. And that’s all I’ll say so I don’t spoil it for you.
The author, Ransom Riggs, has a very captivating way of telling a story. I’m a huge fan of his writing after reading this book. The storyline was fascinating and magical, like that of a grown-up Harry Potter. I’m 100 pages into book 2 and the story has continued to mesmerize me.
My 2017 Rifle Paper Co wall calendar! It’s about that time of year where I’m booking into 2017 for clients and so it’s essential that I have a cute wall calendar to both look at and write on :)…right?
iPhone 6s Plus I got a new iPhone last month because my 6 completely stopped working. I was a little bit sad that I had to upgrade before the launch of the iPhone 7. But now that it’s out and there aren’t too many upgrades from the 6s, I’m happy with my decision. I absolutely love having a big screen on my phone.
That’s it for my September favorites. It wasn’t a crazy exciting month but I think adding an all-time favorite book to my list is worth a little something and celebrating six years of marriage deserves celebration. :)
