GBB Weekly Recap

Hi everybody. It has been a while since the last time I wrote about a little update on my life. I’ve been very busy with stuff which I don’t want to burden you with, but I do miss talking and reading what’s going on in your life. What has your week been? I hope you had a wonderful week and are enjoying your weekend.

So, yeah, today is my birthday. Yay, so happy for that! I’ve got a lot of loves from people in my life this last week. I cannot be here—being healthy and happy—without God and people who love and support me. So, words cannot express how grateful I am today.

Today also marks eleven months of me blogging. This blog is eleven months old now. Almost one year! Wow, time does fly. Thank you so much for making this year epic for me. This cannot be possible without all of your love and support for me and my blog. You guys have brought so much joy to me. I’m so grateful for this. Here is to another epic year ahead!

My husband and I are planning on having a dinner to celebrate and probably watch a movie afterwards. I’m so looking forward to it.

My Book Reviews:
