writing about good books, cozy living, and how they shape an ordinary faith

Hi there! I’m glad you’re here. 

By trade, I am a Speech-Language Pathologist employed part-time in a public school system in Mississippi. I am married, having just celebrated six years. My husband and I alternate between embracing our inner homebodies and yearning for adventures. We started off on the adventurous foot, honeymooning in London and have scarcely slowed down since. In contrast, home has remained the same for these past six years and looks to remain the same for many more. We don’t have children (yet), but I am proud big sister to three siblings far younger than myself. You’ll likely hear of them!

According to the MBTI, I am an INFJ with an introversion level of 75-95%. According to the Eneagram, I’m a 4w5 who happens to hate all things melancholy. According to Pottermore, I’m a Hufflepuff. 

In my free time, you’ll likely find me with a cup of tea in one hand and a book in the other. I’m most partial to fantasy fiction and English period dramas. I don’t watch a lot of TV or movies, but when I do, it’s the same categories. Tolkien and Lewis have most of my literary heart. My home is the most English-cottage reminiscent abode I could find in Central Mississippi. I love to go for long walks and wring out at the end of the day with Yoga with Adriene. If you ask me where I want to eat, I’m going to tell you Mexican food or a pub. And if you could fly me some Ben’s Cookies, I’ll love you forever.

July Shopping + Social Media Sabbatical

Hello and Happy July! June has absolutely flown by. I remember sitting down at my parent's kitchen bar what seems like days ago, patching together summer plans. Now, summer is half-past! It's madness! This morning, I sat down with my Monk Manual and Sacred Ordinary...

The Simple Life According to Hobbits

“It is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life.” This quote has entranced me since I first read it. Not in an actual text, as you might expect from a self-proclaimed Tolkien fanatic; but from a pinned blog post on Pinterest. In an online world defining simplicity as...
