Coming in September

I’ve put together my blogging schedule all the way through December and I’m so excited for it! In September, you can look forward to the beginning of a brand-new series that I’ve wanted to do for a long time, for which I will write periodic posts over the next few months. (Here’s a hint: reading the most important book!) I’m also going to review a movie this month, so if you have any movies you’d like to see a review for, let me know in the comments!

How was your August? Did you have any amazing summer adventures? What are you excited for this school year? Share in the comments! 

love, grace

      Yes! I laughed really hard when I watched it too. It reminded of one time that I went to the beach for a week and brought like ten books because I was worried I would run out.
