Hello, dear readers!
September (and frankly October) has been a busy time for myself and Hailey, in our personal lives, but we still have some updates for you!

It is almost the end of the year, but Hailey and I are making excellent progress on our two (!) reading challenges for 2021. You can follow along with our progress or the Indigo Reading Challenge here, and you can find our 52 Book Club Reading Challenge here.
