Catching My Eye,  Personal

Catching My Eye | 01.01.21

Happy 2021! How good does that feel to say? I had a very low-key New Year’s Eve cuddled up on the couch at home with my boyfriend watching Star Wars, but I made the amazing charcuterie/snack-plate below that we munched on all night long. I’m looking forward to 2021. I know it’s not going to be all that different from 2020 if we are being honest in terms of the pandemic, but it still feels like an amazing fresh start. I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful holiday and is looking forward to a new year! Let’s get into what’s been catching my eye this week!

one | tips on how to read classics better
I know this is the wrong thing to say, but I really want to read more classics. I loved listening to Jane Eyre this year, and I think that’s how I am going to continue reading classics in the future. If you need some tips, check out these tips from one of my favorite book bloggers.

two | a DIY beaded bracelet kit
I adore my Little Words Project bracelet, and I thought it would be so fun to make my own. I love this DIY kit from Etsy. This would be such a fun girls’ night activity or mother-daughter present.

three | a new way to organize
I was cleaning out my room this past week, and I noticed, of course, that the jewelry I had sitting out was a lot more shabby looking than anything that was covered. I invested in a new jewelry organizer that is covered, and I can’t wait to transfer all my pieces to it safely.

four | books that gave hope in 2020
2020 was quite the year. It felt like a year where the world was collectively grieving, and for those of us in Nashville, I know we felt an extreme amount of sadness during not only the tornado early in the year but the Christmas morning bombing. I love this list of book recommendations from other authors that gave them hope.

five | exploring Christianity through a book
I started reading Mere Christianity a little over a week ago, and I am loving the journey it is taking me on. It’s a compilation of the radio talks Lewis Carroll gave during World War II about Christianity in book form. My eyes have been opened to so much already, and I’m less than halfway through.

Happy adventuring,
