December Monthly News

Welcome to the December edition of monthly news!
I cannot believe the end of the year is already here!! Time sure does start moving at a faster pace the older you get.
My 42nd birthday came and went. It was a time of fun and reflection.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and I wish you the best for this new year!
I made my reading goal of 50 books too! It's a good feeling to meet a personal goal. Did you have any personal goals that you met? Will you have any for next year? 
Oddly enough, my favorite book of the year is one I have read many times. Some books will always be great reads, and my pick is one of them.
2019 will be a year of knowing my own worth and evaluating relationships. You have to ask yourself what is most important, and categorize your priorities accordingly. Over 40, you start to really think of these things more. Your bullshit-o-meter is sensitive as you age, and with that comes wisdom. I look forward to being much happier next year!
Wishing you all a happy and prosperous new year!

Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
