May wrap up + favorites

Hey there!

After a week of stepping back, I’m back to creating content. As always, I hope everyone is safe and that we can create sustained change towards equality and justice. I’ll keep on sharing as many resources as I can on my instagram, and if you’d like to donate towards the Black Lives Matter movement or sign any petitions, I still have a bunch of links in this post. 

May was a bit of a weird month. I hit a slump but I also left my house for the first time since March, so at least there’s that. Just so you know, I only went to the grocery store and donated blood, if you can please stay home and practice social distancing!

Now onto the bookish wrap up: I read 7 books and participated in a read-a-thon that lasted for the entire month.

Favorites:

Catholic Media Award to "Modern Family" - New Ways MinistryModern Family: I’ve started a rewatch from the very beginning with my sisters, and we’ve been having a blast. This is one of my favorite shows, and considering the state of the world lately, I think we could all use some comfort shows & media. Every episode makes me laugh at some point, there are so many relatable moments and I found out that Phil is actually my favorite character. He’s such a sweetheart! Also, family dynamics are my favorite relationships to read about, so this show is perfect for me. 

That’s it for May. I know that this wrap up is a bit late, but from now on my posting schedule is back on track. How was your month? Any new favorites?

Until next time, 

juli

  1. Hello Juli!
    That’s great to hear that you were able to enjoy some time outside. Hope that things will progress towards normal where you are, and that you will continue to stay safe and healthy 🙂
    I’m glad to hear that you liked Truthwitch! I started reading a bit of this book but didn’t continue. I should pick it up again one of these days 🙂
