Little Loves #1

Hi everyone! I decided to start a new series called Little Loves as a way to acknowledge and appreciate more of the little things that are making me happy every day.  I’m not sure how frequently I’ll be posting over the next month because I impulsively decided to participate in NaNoWriMo and so far I’ve surpassed the 3,000 word mark!  Last year’s attempt left me at about 7,000 words before things got too busy to continue but I’m really confident that I’m going to complete the challenge this year because I’m so into my story.  I’ll still be very active on BookTube but I won’t necessarily have the time to post every video here too.  I may switch to a weekly roundup or something.  Hope everyone else is doing well and I would love to know your little loves!
