Sometimes the weight of living gets so heavy that your mind gets overwhelmed and the thought of getting out of bed feels like an impossible task.

In an effort to care more about my mental and physical health, I wanted to share some simple things to do during bad mental health days which will leave you feeling a bit better. These are things that don’t require a lot of energy and can be done at home because I know how the hard days can suck the energy right out of you and small tasks can feel daunting. Read More »

Journey to Jim Thorpe, PA

Travel Diary: JIM THORPE, PA | November 10 – 12, 2017 

FRIDAY, NOV. 10

On Friday, my parents, brother, and I drove a few hours to Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania for the weekend. We have visited this quaint town before but wanted to visit it again because there were a few more things we wanted to see that we didn’t on our first trip.

Jim Thorpe is a lovely town tucked deep into the mountains of Pennsylvania and provided me with that warm, cozy feeling that made me feel like I was on the set of Gilmore Girls. This town reminded me of the show because it is tiny, full of quirky independent shops, and welcoming people who made our stay that much better.

Liv’s Book Sale

Liv’s Book Sale

I am a big advocate of unhauling books from my shelves if I don’t feel the desire to keep them anymore. I tend to get rid of a lot of books on my shelves that I don’t need or want because I’d rather make room for other novels in my life.

So, in order to make a little extra money, I decided to host a book sale on my blog, like my friend Cait did over on her blog. Following Cait’s guidelines, I’m going to do all of this through Paypal where I will receive the payments from you all. I will also provide you with a tracking number for your package if you make a purchase so you will know where your book is!Read More »
