February Titles // 2018

a walk from December in Tsawwassen
Not every month can be a great reading month (like last month!) but I'm in the middle of three good books not listed here, so watch out for March being title-heavy agian. Here's what I got to in the shortest month.
*The Child Finder by Rene Denfeld - It's been a long time since I read a fiction book in 2 days, but this was a total page-turner. It's our March book club pick, and everyone I've chatted with has said the same thing-they read it quickly and really liked it even though the topic is very heavy (yes, child abduction). The premise is that the Child Finder is a lady who has a successful time finding missing children because she herself was a 'lost child'. I'm not giving any more away but it's a shorter book-under 300 pages-and completely worth the read at 4 stars. 
*Full by Asheritah Ciuciu - This was a book I'd seen awhile back and just plopped it onto my amazon wish list so I'd remember it later. W…

New Year, New List // 18 in 2018

looking into Vancouver from Jericho Beach
I first saw this type of list from Sarah VonBargen's blog Yes and Yes, and I immediately understood the practice. I'm pretty sure I've been doing lists in this vein for at least 6 years on the blog, and I love it. Every year I leave a few blank to fill in at later dates, but here's my tentative "18 Things in 2018". What are you really hoping to do in 2018? 
1) Be in More Photos (and all the moms said "preach!")
2) Getaway on the Sunshine Coast
3) Visit the Night Market in Richmond
4) Visit Britannia Mine (completed!)
5) Go to Shop Suite during the Christmas Season (I have yet to find a worthy handmade market up here but I've heard good things about this one!)
6) Buy a better swimsuit (for the love).
7) Visit the Laura Ingalls Wilder Homestead in De Smet with Grammy + kids. (Booked our airbnbs for #7,8!)
8) Take the kids to Ashfall Fossil Beds. Same trip as above, in Western Nebraska; one of my favorite me…
