Loved “The Princess and the Frog” 😉

I also hung out with my nephews a lot, baked TONS for our church picnic and Thanksgiving, and watched “Harriet”. (It was amazing. ❤ ) I also got to use watercolor paint for the first time (thanks for teaching me, Emma!) and finished my rewatch of BBC Sherlock (on a filter). 

This month, I’m looking forward to celebrating Advent and Christmas with my family and continuing to write more of this story I’m really loving. 😉

How was your November? What are you looking forward to this month?
