I haven’t done a favorites post in forever, but here are some of my current favorites from the first month of summer.
Same Kind of Different as Me
This book was AMAZING. True stories are my favorite, mainly because I find them more inspiring than fiction. I would hands down recommend this book to anyone- my best friends and my grandparents. One of my friend’s mom’s told me about it. The story is written from different perspectives, one from a homeless man and the other from a wealthy art collector. The art collector’s wife convinces him to volunteer at the homeless shelter and the book is about how their two lives intertwine and it’s effects. This book is a beautiful true story, and it’s a great representation of how serving through our faith makes a difference. I love how it shows the highs and lows of life realistically; the whole book is touching. Would've included this in the picture but I've already let a friend borrow it- I've been recommending it to everyone!
Last Year Was Complicated- Nick Jonas
I’m currently OBSESSED with this album. Pop is definitely not my favorite genre, but I’m hooked on this whole album. My favorites are Chainsaw & Bacon (weird song name but SO catchy), but I honestly have been listening to the whole album and love all the songs.
Sunglasses are definitely my favorite accessory at the moment. I have WAY too many pairs, and I’ve told myself I’m not allowed to buy another pair until next summer… oops. I love having on a funky pair of sunglasses since they completely change an outfit.
This summer I’ve been taking pottery classes to try something new & been learning how to use the wheel. I’m still pretty bad, but it’s so relieving and fun to not only make things, but fail. The wheel is a lot of trial and error and just playing with clay. Can’t wait to share my creations :)
I have been loving doing this devotional every day. So many of my friends and people I know use this devotional, so I finally purchased my own copy and it’s great!
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
This Netflix original is hilarious. My sister and I binge watched pretty much the whole show in two days. Kimmy was held underground in a bunker for 15 years by a cult leader since she was 15. When she gets out, mentally she is still a 15 year old in the 90’s. She moves to New York City, loses all her money, and it just keeps going from there. This show is the bomb, and it’s HILARIOUS. The theme song is so catchy... Katie and I couldn't stop singing it. That's where the "females are strong" comes from! :)
Hope you enjoyed some of the things I’ve been enjoying this month. Still looking for things to try & I especially need books to read for July. So if anyone has book suggestions :)))
