Love how this turned out. Adorable. Did you use your camera for this?

Orphan Train. It's historical fiction, set in the late 1920s through the 1940s, and is about orphan children who were sent on trains from the northeast to the midwest. The story focuses on two women: one teenager, and one old woman, and how their lives are surprisingly similar. I recommend it!

Yeah, Im curious to see when I start drinking coffee again. I dont mind the smell so much now, but Im still going to wait a while. Id prefer to not drink any caffeine during pregnancy if I can avoid it. But I know Ill need that caffeine boost again at some point!

Love your list this week! So many good ones...Ann-Marie's post, career day, the digital notebook article. Thumbs up! (Just one thing...the link to the NYT article about work hours isn't opening properly. Thanks!)

I agree - love these posts too. I tried doing a capsule wardrobe at one point, but realized that because I own so few clothes (I'm just not a shopper and pretty much always only buy what I love), I didn't need to go that route. But my husband and I are working at a sleepaway camp this summer - can't wait! - so I'll definitely be rounding up clothes that are suitable for those ten weeks, including a bunch of maternity wear. :)

Coffee! Of course! My parents use a Keurig machine, but I bet I can find some interesting flavors to give my dad for gifts. Thank you!

I am totally about just doing what you enjoy - it can get way too overwhelming to try to keep up with every social media channel out there.

Yeah, it's always hard to know whether we've made the right decisions. I try not to dwell on it or regret it either, and keep in mind that it's there if I ever want to go back to it.

I've been intrigued by this book ever since I heard about it. (Sadly - though happily! - we'll be away working at a camp all summer, so I'll have to figure out how to get my hands on a library copy somewhere.) Anyway! I so agree with the storing clothes in plastic. I hate having to wash everything after storing it for months because it smells like a storage bin, so I'm all about drawers and closets getting used. Thanks for sharing this! Thumbs up emoji!

I love it. I find traditions fascinating, and I think it's wonderful that you've found a way to keep a part of home in your new place.

Love this idea...so sweet and sentimental. It makes me wish that we had done something like it, but we had a wonderful wedding that I loved so much. What a treat it must be each anniversary!

This is a great review, and great insight. My husband and I have toyed with the idea of each getting a Fitbit, but have resisted so far, as I'm not sure it's quite the right kind of motivation we need. BUT, my sister got one a year or so ago (her boss got every person at her office one who wanted - so awesome), and she'll walk laps during her lunch break to make sure she'll make her step count.

I just started the Nightingale! Seems like it's going to be an excellent book.
