My first #bookhaul of the year!!! I only need vol. 6-9 of Saga! Getting there slowly. This year did not turn out well for reading, BUT I made the most perfect little human! I will take that trade. My husband was awesome and we took advantage of @halfpricebooks sale this weekend!!!! I‘m so behind but excited to get back into this! We also got some books for Oliver‘s library!😍

Winter Garden | Kristin Hannah

1. Calla lilies! I also love roses 🌹 but callas are #1!

2. Cucumber and squash- most varieties.

3. Both! We have a very small yard, so we do container gardening every year. My in-laws just got me an aero garden for my birthday! So, I can hopefully have herbs year round. I also have LOTS of houseplants! I love them so much! ❤️

4. Tagged book- it‘s a stretch but I love it!

REPollock I had not heard of an aero garden before! Cool! 🌱🌿💚 1y
BooksAreTheNewBlack @REPollock Right?! I thought it was the coolest but my husband was not convinced! Wait, until she sees all that fresh Cilantro! His fave. Haha! 😁 1y

This book is intense and will make you cry! It‘s so worth it though. Blake takes on the rape culture and she does a good job. There‘s a lot of things going on that it sometimes can lose focus on the main plot. Overall, great read!
