A New Start

It's been a long time (almost a year) since I have posted here.  I stopped initially because I got burned out on blogging for a while.  After a few months, I got super busy and distracted.  The last year has been a big year of change for me.  In May I graduated from graduated school with my master's in library science.  In July, my husband got an amazing job and we moved to Seattle.  At the end of July I decided I was unhealthy and unhappy with the way I looked, so I started exercising and eating better.  I have also started running and become addicted.  In December I finished my first 5k race, and I have registered for a 15k in March.  My goal right now is to finish the Disneyland 1/2 Marathon at the end of August.

Anyway, the point of this post is to say that I'm coming back to blogging.    Going forward this blog will focus on books I read (mostly YA) and my thoughts on library issues and news.  I will probably throw in some workout/healthy eating stuff from time to time.  I'm excited to start a new chapter on my blog and I hope you will join me!
