November 2016: Month-in-Review

Hello, lovelies! It's December. The last month of 2016. *stares at calendar* What?!

I'm pretty sure November was the busiest month of my year so far. I am not exaggerating when I say that there was always something going on. As a result, I didn't get a lot of writing done, and blogging definitely didn't happen as often as I hoped. I feel like I say this in every post now, but I really do want to get back onto my blogging schedule. We will have to see what happens. I recently had a crazy inspiration/idea for something that could completely change my blogging/writing stuff! It will require a lot of prayer (and if it happens, a lot of work and time!). SO, we will see where that goes, but, in the meantime, I am hoping to still be able to get lots of posts up! 


-I finished the 2016 Anne of Green Gables Reading Challenge!
Well, technically I finished it in October, but I finished up all of my notes and such at the beginning of this month. It was such a fun challenge, and I found a bunch of new favorite books through it! If you want to read all of the books, but you aren't sure if it is worth it, it absolutely is!! 

- I participated in the Thankfulness Thursday Challenge: 
Grace Anne hosted a thankfulness challenge over at her blog, and I am so glad I participated in it! Every Thursday, I posted a list of things that I was thankful/grateful for. I am thinking about doing it permanently, but I am not sure yet. Either way, it was an amazing challenge. Thank you for hosting it, Grace! :) 

-Thanksgiving happened:
I have always loved Thanksgiving. This year, my brother and sister-in-law came to visit, and we got together with another family. It was a really low-key day and such a blast! I have learned so much about true gratitude this month. ♥

- NaNoWriMo:
Ok, so I am going to be honest here: I am not happy with how NaNo went for me. I started out really well, but the craziness of this month took over, and I didn't get much done after that. I had limited time to work on it, and between being sick and exhausted from life, I really just didn't get much writing in when I could've. SO, with that being said, I will add that I am grateful for the writing I did get done, even though it wasn't as much as I had originally hoped. I have learned how much fun it is to write a novel, I really love the one I am writing, and I fully intend to finish it, even if it takes me longer than normal! ;) 

Favorite Music↞ 

Welll, as all of you know, it is official Christmas season, so most of what I have been listening to is Christmas music. :p I did put in a song that isn't Christmas, though. :) Here are a few of my favorite songs from this month!

//December Song - Peter Hollens
(you should actually just go listen to his whole album because it is AMAZING. ♥)

//Christmas Is Here - JJ Heller

//Oh My Soul - Audrey Assad
