What I’m doing for 12th Grade

What I’m doing for 12th Grade

Hey friends!! ❀️

I mentioned a few posts back that I started 12th grade a few weeks ago, and a few of you said that you would like to see what books I’m using.

I’ve been doing it for several weeks, and I’ve really been enjoying it. (Even though I’m very anxious to graduate, haha!) Here’s what I’ve been doing!


  1. Epoch from Generations

I really enjoy reading the book that goes with this. (Epoch by Kevin Swanson) It’s very interesting and enlightening.

2. Worldviews in Conflict from Generations

I’ve been wanting to read this book for years, so I’m excited about it!

3. Intro to Missions from ACE

I love this one because there are a bunch of really neat missionary biographies for me to read!! Currently I’m reading Peril by Choice about John and Elaine Beekman, missionaries in Mexico. πŸ˜€

4. Jenson’s Format Writing from MasterBooks

It’s quite possible that this is my least favorite subject…. I usually like writing, but I don’t really like this book. πŸ˜‚

5. Survey of Science: History and Concepts from MasterBooks

This one is so interesting!! There are four textbooks to reading, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and Physics. I’m currently reading The World of Mathematics, which I’m enjoying much more than I thought I would. XD

6. Apologetics in Action from MasterBooks

This is one of my favorite subjects here, as I have already read a love several of these books. I’m currently reading Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions Vol. 1. πŸ™‚

7. Algebra 1 and Geometry from CTC Math

As far as maths go, this program isn’t the worst. That’s all I’m going to say about it. 🀣


And that’s pretty much it! There’s not a lot of subjects, but some of them are pretty in depth so it’s still a lot of work. I’ve been enjoying (most) of it though!!

Are you familiar with any of these books or programs? I’m interested in what curriculum you all are using!

Love,

Rosy

A Very Bookish Post (Book Mail, Spring Book Recommendations, Spell the Month in Books, and more…)

A Very Bookish Post (Book Mail, Spring Book Recommendations, Spell the Month in Books, and more…)

Hey everyone! How are you all? ❀️

*WARNING* Lots of books, and talking of books ahead. If you hate books, I’m truly sorry, and it may be in your best interest to stop reading this post while you can. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. However, if you are in your right mind, and you love books… I hope you enjoy this post!!

Anyway. πŸ˜‚ Yes, we have a fairly long post today, dedicated completely to books, and all the bookish things that have been happening in my life lately. XD

Book Mail

My friend Kate, from Once Upon an Ordinary, generously offered to send me some her books that I didn’t yet own. She sent me Kiera, Sincerely, Jem and The Night Archers. I love them all so much, and can’t wait to read them!!!

I’ve been wanting to read Kiera ever since it was first published, and Sincerely, Jem will be so much fun to read during Christmas season. I already had The Twin Arrows, so I was excited to get The Night Archers to match. They look so cute together!! 😍

Thank you so much, Kate!!!

(Note: That’s the old edition of Kiera, but Kate is working on a second edition, with a beautiful new cover. And it’s hardback!! Check it out here. )

Spring Books Recommendations

I love reading books that are associated with the season. It’s just such a great way to celebrate the time of year! I compiled this list of a few books that I think capture the idea of Spring, or I just associate with Spring. πŸ™‚

The Secret Garden

What else is there to say, this book is about a garden. Very Spring-y! I’ve almost finished reading this one. πŸ™‚ It’s such a cute story!

Any books by Jane Austen, or books that are set in the Regency Era

I’m really not sure why, but I strongly connect the regency era with Spring. That’s why I love reading Jane Austen during this time of year. My favorites are:

  1. Emma
  2. Pride and Prejudice
  3. Sense and Sensibility

That’s all of them that I’ve yet read, but I’m planning on reading Mansfield Park very soon. πŸ˜€

Another more modernly written regency book I’m hoping to read soon is the Heart of Warwickshire Series by Chautona Havig, especially the first one. πŸ™‚

Anne of Green Gables, Kilmeny of the Orchard, and pretty much everything else by L.M. Montgomery are also great for Spring!

Do you guys have any more Spring book recommendations for me? If so, I’d love to hear them in the comments!!

Spell the Month in Books

A- A Gown of Spanish Lace by Jannette Oke

Fiction, Romance, Western

I read this book last month, and… I cried…. 😭 ❀️

P – Presumption and Partiality by Rebekah Jones

Vintage, Romance, Book re-telling

This book is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice – but set in the 1930’s! And I love the cover. ❀

R Roses for Mamma by Jannette Oke

Fiction, Romance

I apologize for adding another Jannette Oke book… This may well be my favorite book by this author!

IIron Scouts of the Confederacy by Lee McGriffen

Historical Fiction, Civil War

L Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Classic, Fiction

Book Organization

So, lately I’ve been keeping all my books in my cabinet, but 1) I hated that they were all closed up where I couldn’t look at them, haha! And 2) They eventually got way too full for my small cabinet and could no longer fit.

So for the past while I’ve been looking out for a better way to store them. I would like my own bookshelf, but they are crazy expensive, and we didn’t have the materials to build one. Probably a good thing, because otherwise I would have tried. 🀣 I finally decided to line them up along the piano, and I think that works really well! I’d still like a bookshelf someday, but this works perfectly for now. πŸ˜€

This isn’t all of my books, just the ones that look nice enough to display. Lol. πŸ˜‚


If you guys are reading this, you have officially reached the end of this post, and you’re the best!! (And you probably either love to read, or if not, you’re a good friend of mine, hehe! Lol. XD)

Whatever the case, thanks so much for sticking around through the entire post, and comment below with what books you’re currently reading!

Love,

February and March Review

Standard
February and March Review

Hello everyone! πŸ’• 🌷

How are you all? I’m so sorry I haven’t posted in quite a long time! 23 days to be exact… Yikes!! Things have been pretty busy here, and I’ve just been lacking the necessary motivation for blogging. I’m here now, but I can promise how consistent I’ll be, hehe! I will try though. πŸ˜€ I really want to get back into it.

Anyway, about half way though March, I realized something terrible… I forgot to do a February review!!!! That’s the first time I’ve downright forgotten in… probably the history of me doing these. I’ve skipped some I think, but never forgotten. So I’m just going to do both of the last two months in this post. February was waaay too long ago to remember almost anything… But I’ll do my best! πŸ˜‚

February

*Long, awkward silence*

Yep, I told you I wouldn’t be able to remember much… LOL. XD


Our friends Pablo and Anna, and their kids visited us one Sunday for, and after church. We had a fun time with them!

March

I spent the month of March doing TONS of math, so that I could start 12th grade. I finished most of 11th awhile ago, but was behind in math, so…. not fun….!! Eventually I got caught up enough to start 12th grade, which was really exciting!! Hopefully I will do a post on what I’m doing for 12th grade for you all. πŸ˜€

I also appear to have taken little to no photos in March. Ugh, I’ll have to work on that in April. Meanwhile, let me go scrounge up what I can from March. πŸ™‚

Selfies with siblings πŸ˜‚. ❀️

My grandparents visited us fora few days! We had a lot of fun with them. πŸ˜€

My grandpa, and sister Susy

A few of our goats have kidded! I don’t have a particular liking for goats (at all), but the little kids are adorable!!! 😍 Unfortunately, the mother was not accepting them for a while, and we had to hold her down to help them nurse. XD I helped with that for a bit, and did not enjoy it one little bit, LOL! I survived though. πŸ˜€ By now, the mother is letting them nurse, a lot more at least. πŸ™‚

My entire family signed up for the Spring100, a challenge where you try to walk 100 miles in Spring. A few of us have done it in past years, but this year we’re all doing it. πŸ˜€ It’s been a lot of fun, taking walks together!! I think I’ve done around 12 or 13 miles so far. πŸ™‚

I spent the last bit of March feeling pretty sick with a cold… I’m still bit sick, but getting a lot better, thankfully!

Books

  1. Stressed Out: A Practical, Biblical Approach to Anxiety by Todd Friel (4 stars)
  2. The Minstrel by Malachi Cyr (5 stars!)

  8. A Gown of Spanish Lace by Jannette Oke (5 Stars!)
  9. Haunted Waters by Jerry Jenkins (4 stars) (Not pictured)
  10. Two O’Clock Slump by Chautona Havig (5 Stars)

My favorites were… Never mind, there were too many good books here, that I would end up picking half of them. XD


Hopefully I will have a more detailed review for April, but this will have to do for now. πŸ™‚

Speaking of April…. Happy April!

πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚

I’m so excited for this month, and for the weather to begin warming up, and outside to start getting greener. I love Spring! 🌸 🌳 🌷

I hope you all are doing great!! How did your last few months go?

Love,

Memes for Bookworms!! πŸ“š

Standard

Hey everyone! 😁

Since my bullet journal theme for February is Books, I thought it’d be fun to do more bookish posts this month. And who doesn’t love memes, so I decided that would be the perfect combination for this post! πŸ˜€ Enjoy!!


This is sadly true for a lot of things..!
I’m so sorry, all you authors…
Haha! XD

Just to be safe!!
Yep. And it kind of hurts. XD

This would be me if I had money. It’s probably a good thing I don’t! XD
I found this one hilarious, because I would TOTALLY do that as a kid!!
The struggle is real.
I always do this when I reading anything barely suspenseful or exciting. XD

It sounds so weird when worded this way, but. XD
Just a small list. πŸ˜‰

Except for me it’s the book section in thrift stores.

It’s honestly very scary.

I was so surprised when I saw this one, because I didn’t know that was an actual thin people other than me did. Lol!

Mmm-hmm, which is why you’ll never get a one-book answer from me. Sorry. πŸ˜‰

*Finishes laughing to myself* πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚

That’s all I got for today, folks. I hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed putting it together! (Hint: a lot.) Which memes did you relate to the most?

Love,

Rosy

so what’s your favorite book? (Just kidding!) 🀣

A Day in my Life!

Standard
A Day in my Life!

Hello everyone!! πŸ˜€

Today I thought it would be fun to show you guys what a fairly normal school day in my life sometimes looks like. πŸ˜€ I hope y’all enjoy!

Thursday, February 10th, 2022

6:45 – Woke up

I woke up around 6:45, which was nice, since lately I’ve been waking up 20 or more minutes later. I got up (code for I physically forced myself to somehow climb out of bed… I’m not a morning person…!) I made some tea and read my Bible. πŸ˜€

This is still half-asleep me. XD

7:20 – Got dressed

I got dressed and ready for the day. I washed my face, put on a little bit of makeup and smoothed out my hair a bit. My bangs were kind of funny, but I’ll be fixing that later. πŸ™‚

And yeah, I know my the last pick is really random, but….. They’re new shoes and I love them, so. There ya go. 🀣

7:45-Breakfast

My dad made oatmeal for breakfast. πŸ™‚

8:15-Picked up our maid

I was a little bit late on this today – I usually leave at 8, but that’s fine. πŸ™‚ She comes to help out twice a week. πŸ™‚


8:45-Straightened Hair

I just got a flat iron, and decided to straighten my hair today! It’s only the second time I’ve done it, and it’s really fun. πŸ˜„ My hair always feels so long after I straighten is, haha!

9:30 – Worked a bit on this blog post

I’m just writing all these things down shortly after they happen, so that I don’t forget it later. πŸ™‚ Also, more tea. πŸ˜‹

9:50 – Worked on school

I spent the next good while working on school, mainly math and writing, since I’m a bit behind on those subjects.

11:00 – Class

On school mornings at 11:00 to 12:00 I do a class with my three youngest siblings. I do math, science and learning to read with them, and I also sing some songs and read aloud to them.

12:15 – Store

I had to run to the store real quick grab some things for lunch. I meant to take a picture inside the store, but I forgot, so here’s this. XD

12:45 – Ate Lunch

Again, I forgot to take a picture, haha. XD But we had beans.

1:10 – Organized bookshelves

(This was before I cleaned it up, btw. Haha!)

2:00 – Emailed

I caught up on some emails I’ve been meaning to write for forever! I also answered some comments on my blog.

3:00 – Made bread

I hadn’t made bread in quite a while – my younger sisters have mostly taken over that job – so I had to kind of re-learn! XD

4:00

The bread is rising, and while it rose, I read for a bit, and talk with my friend Kyra. πŸ˜€ Then, I put the bread in the oven, and did some more reading and talking to Kyra. XD

I read Enjoy the Poodle Skirt by Kate (Willis) Hopman. It’s so good! And guess what…. You can get a kindle copy for FREE on Amazon. So go check that out! It’s adorable… 😍

6:00

Bread’s out of the oven. It’s so pretty!

6:30 – Supper!

You’ll notice there aren’t many people in this photos, and that’s because my mom was doing a zoom meeting, and my Dad had taken three of the kids to preach in another town. πŸ™‚

7:00 – Dishes!

8:00 – Watched Andy Griffith

After the chores were all finished, we sat down to watch a of couple episodes of the Andy Griffith show. πŸ˜€

After that, I kind of forgot to keep track of what I did when. The kids went to bed after that, and I read for a little while. I went to bed around 10, and probably fell asleep around 11:00. XD It takes me a while sometimes. Usually it doesn’t take me that long though.

And yeah, I hope you guys enjoyed seeing a little peek of what my day was like! Ever day is different of course, but I think that that’s a pretty good representation of what most of my school days are like. πŸ™‚

Hope you’re having a great day!

Love,

Rosy ❀️ 🌼

January 2022 Review

Standard
January 2022 Review

Hey everyone!! πŸ˜€

In 2021 I did monthly recaps. I’m tired of that, so now I’m going to do monthly reviews. Will that make any difference? Nope. But will it make me happy? Yes. So we’re doing it. 🀣

Sorry, that was random. Anywho.

We’ve gone through the entire first month of 2022!! It’s now time for my to perform my monthly ritual of saying, “BOY, this year is going by crazy fast! Already.” πŸ˜‚

I snapped this photo of me and my siblings while we were getting ready for a video call. 8/9 of us here!

Speaking of, I had a super fun video call with my friend, Kyra. πŸ˜€

We attempted to make a heart… But hearts are very difficult to make together with your hands when you’re 500 miles apart. It ended up looking like a broken heart, but oh well. We’ll try again next time! πŸ˜‚

My sister Grace and I visited a friend of ours nearby. We hadn’t seen her in a good while, so that was great! She has an adorable baby girl. 😍

Me and my sister, Lizzie

I’ve been working on going on walks more often. It’s a good form of exercise!

A few weeks ago, we rented a new building for church. We had been meeting on a building on our property, but now we want to be in the city, closer to more people.

Doing a class with my siblings!
Recording a song

My dad went on a trip to another state in Mexico by the ocean. He got this really need picture of some crocodiles!

I made this this Jane Austen book themed collage in my art journal using dust jackets from some of her books. I think it turned out so cool!

A painting that I was working on a few weeks ago, and um, am still kind of working on. πŸ˜‚ I really need to finish it! I want to put a Bible verse on it, but I still haven’t decided which one to use. πŸ™‚

I recorded these songs with my friend Kyra – I sang, and she played the guitar. She even wrote the second song… It’s amazing!! Make sure to subscribe to her channel if you’d like to see more song videos like these! πŸ˜€

Books

I read quite a bit this month, haha. πŸ˜‚ The Emily Abbott books are shorter though, so it wasn’t a totally insane amount.

  1. The Lost Dutchman’s Secret by Rebekah Jones (5 stars)
  2. Keep Faith in an Age of Reason by Jason Lisle (4.5 stars)
  3. Snow-crossed Letter by Chautana Havig (4 stars)

How was your month? Have you read any of the books I mentioned?

February 2022, Bullet Journal Set UpπŸ“š

Standard

Hey everyone!!

I know that I didn’t really do anything fancy in my bullet journal last time, ditching the theme, and just doing whatever. But I’m back this month with actual cohesive and consistent theme, and I happen to love how it turned out. πŸ˜„ 😁

The theme for this month is something that is very near and dear to my heart, and was suggested to me by a friend, who is even nearer, and dearer to my heart. (Hi Kyra!) XD 😁 πŸ’•

Books!!!

I’ve been wanting to do this theme, probably since I started bullet journaling almost two years ago, but the thought of so many drawing books was a bit daunting, so I put it off for forever…. But, it didn’t end up being nearly as hard as I thought it would, and I’m really happy with how the whole thing turned out. πŸ˜€

Alrighty, so the cover page is super simple. I draw the outline of an open books, did up a a small calendar, and wrote in a bookish quote. The typewriter font was super fun and cute I think, so I kind of made my main font and used it as often as I could throughout the set up. I think it fits well with the book theme!

I love the mood tracker… And the book quote…! XD

Super simple habit tracker. This is like, my go-to set up for this, and I like how it works. I love the color theme a lot, although some of them are so dark that it’s a bit hard to read the words over them. XD That’s ok though.

Again, love the colors here!! I accidentally messed up the quote a bit, but oh well. 🀣

I think you guys have heard me say that book page is my absolute favorite page ever, so I’ll refrain. Or maybe I won’t. This is my absolute favorite page ever!!! πŸ˜‚ Since the whole theme is books, I added an extra page dedicated to reading. πŸ™‚

Also, I just love that little shelf of books I drew at the bottom of the second page. 😍 It’s pretty cute, if I may say so myself… πŸ“š

After doing it for January, I decided that I liked the free style daily log. I decorated the corners, and then I can just write to-do lists however and wherever I want on there. I find it also conserves space, so that’s good too. It’s also way funner to design!

And there you have it! This set up was surprisingly easy to do, and I just love it! 😍

Love,

Rosy ❀️ πŸ“š

Which page was your favorite? What are you currently reading?

Liebster Award! (+Our New Family Picture)

Hey everyone!!

Autumn over at Bursting Through the Darkness tagged me for the Liebster Award. Thanks, Autumn! I’m really looking forward to answering your questions. πŸ˜€

(Go check out her blog!!)

Autumn’s Questions:

  1. Is Chick-Fil-A sauce overrated?

I’m really not sure… It’s been so long since I’ve had it! But I’m pretty sure I really liked it.

2. Do you sing? If so, what part?

Yes, I love singing!! I pretty much just sing any part I feel like singing at the moment. XD

3. When you fold your hands naturally which thumb is on top? (right or left?)

Left. It feels so weird the other way!! XD

4. Do you like blogging on a phone or laptop better?

I’m not even sure how this is a question. Laptop by far!!!!

5. Favorite movie or book when you were a child?

Hmm, I liked a lot of them! XD But one movie I really liked was The Runner From Raven’s Head, and I book series I loved (and still love) is the Ivan series by Myrna Grant.

6. Have you ever swallowed something that’s not meant to be swallowed?

Ummmm… I think the list to too long to put here, sorry! 🀣

7. Ice cream or cake?

Ice cream! Yum!!

8. What is your favorite snack food?

Hmm, I like a lot, but maybe chips and salsa. πŸ˜‹

9. How many books are you currently reading and which one are you enjoying most?

I’m currently reading around 8 books I think, and I’m particularly enjoying Evidence Not Seen: A Woman’s Miraculous Faith in the Jungles of World War II. It’s so interesting!!!

10. We all have random fears (like driving under a bridge when a train is going across), what’s one of yours?

Um, probably abibliophobia. The fear of running out of books to read. πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚

11. Is there a verse/song/quote that has inspired you lately?

The song I’ll Never Forsake You was encouraging to me lately, when I recorded it with my friend Kyra. πŸ˜€


I’m not going to tag anyone this time (since I’ve done this so many times! XD), but anyone is free to do this as well!! I’d love to see your answers to these questions. πŸ˜€

Thanks again for tagging me, Autumn! I loved your questions!!


In other news, we finally took a new family picture, after several years! I really like how it turned out, and glad to finally have an updated photo. πŸ˜€

Book Haul!! (+Vlogmas Weeks 3 and 4)

Hey everyone!! πŸ˜€

I have a really fun post for today. I recently bought several books from Thriftbooks, and I’m going to do a book haul, and show you guys what I got!!

Thriftbooks is my favorite place to buy books, as you can often get them for an incredibly cheap price. They are used, but are generally in good condition. πŸ™‚

As you can see, I was pretty excited to get the packages! Getting books in the mail is one of the bestest and funnest feelings ever…!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ“š

I bought 9 books altogether, for around 35 dollars. To me, that seems like an awful lot of money, but when you consider that it’s only a little over 3 dollars per book…. Super good deal!! Anyways, here’s what I got, and what I spent on them!! (And believe me, I spent a long time very carefully contemplating which books to get!) πŸ˜‚


Roses for Mama by Jannette Oke ($4.67)

I haven’t read this one yet, but my mom really loved it when she was younger, so I’m excited to read it!

A Gown of Spanish Lace by Jannette Oke ($4.19)

Another one by the same author, because I love her books!

A Father’s Promise by Donna Lynn Hess ($3.99)

Several of my siblings love this book, so I had to get it. Plus, I love WWII stories. I have a feeling this book is going to make it into my list of favorites. πŸ™‚

Through the Fire by Diane Noble ($4.39)

The first books of the Mysteries and the Minister’s Wife series.

A State of Grace by Traci Depree ($3.99)

And the second book! I read these a long time ago, and loved them. I’m excited to read them again!!

Deepest Roots of the Heart by Chautona Havig ($4.39)

Another WWII story!!! I’m just starting to read this author’s books. πŸ™‚

Emma by Jane Austen ($3.99)

Been wanting to read this one for quite awhile! So far the only Jane Austen books I’ve read is Pride and Prejudice, which I loved. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Emma. πŸ˜€

Joni – And Unforgettable Story by Joni Earekson Tada ($4.79)

An autobiography by a very inspiring lady! I’ve watched a movie about her, but haven’t yet read any of her books. πŸ™‚

Calico Captive by Elizabeth George Speare ($3.99)

The is another one my siblings have read and liked. I’ve wanted to read it for a long time, and I also love the other books by this author!

And there you go! I’m SO excited to read these books!! I had some credit from past orders, so one of these books was free, but I don’t remember which. Also, since I spent over $10, shipping was free, which was awesome! I would totally recommend Thriftbooks to anyone who loves books, but doesn’t have a lot of money to spend on them. (Also, if you don’t mind your books being a little worn, if you choose the cheapest option) πŸ™‚ It’s awesome!!


Vlogmas Weeks 3 and 4

Here are the last two parts of Vlogmas that I did over on my Youtube channel. Hope you guys enjoy! I posted Vlogmas Weeks 1 and 2 HERE, so go check these out if you haven’t yet!!

My January 2022 Bullet Journal Set Up

Ok, so to be honest, I wasn’t feeling very inspired this month. I may be a little bit burned out from spending so much time bullet journaling every single month in 2021. Half of me wanted to take a break for January, but since it’s the first month of the year, it feels kind of sad to do that. Normally I’d want to be extra for January, but this time, I ended up just doing something super simple. I think it’ll be good to get a break though, and hopefully I’m start back up as normal in February or March! (And I’ll probably end up skipping a month this year too, so. )

Alright, the theme for January is…. *GASP* I didn’t do a theme! As I said before, i was feeling un-inspired, and didn’t have clue what theme I wanted to do. So, I decided that I was just going to do whatever I wanted, and also not worry so much about making everything perfect. So if they don’t seem as nice or well thought out as normal, that’s why. πŸ˜‰ And yeah, let’s just get into it!

The first thing I did, was a sunset circle kind of thing in the middle of the page. However, due to my apparent and obvious lack of colored pencil blended abilities, I absolutely hated, and didn’t have a clue what to do with it. So I walked away for awhile, and came back to it a bit later when I was feeling less frustrated. I decided to do a zen tangle all around the edges of the page, and after that was done, I liked it much better!! Other than the terrible hand-lettering of the word “January”, I think it’s pretty good, haha!

In my habit tracker, I accidentally made two spots bigger than the rest, which caused great distress for a few minutes. I just went with it though, and you can hardly see it now πŸ˜‰

The mood tracker is a… you know, I’m not sure what it is. A page full of geometric shapes. πŸ˜‚ Maybe it’s a stained glass window.

I like the theme of this page!

As awhiles, my favorite page! Here’s a glimpses of some of the books I’m planning on reading this month. (I’ve already finished that last one, which I’m reading out loud to my siblings!)

For my daily log, I did something super simple and just did a pretty design at the top. I didn’t even section of portions for days – I figured I’d just write down the date wherever I was at on the page. I think it’s working pretty well!

I think this is so pretty!! πŸ˜€ ❀️

As you can see, I didn’t do as many pages as I usually do, and that’s ok. I think it’ll be good to have a tiny break, and get re-motivated. Whatever the case, I’m really excited to see what January, and 2022 holds!! πŸ˜€

Love,

Rosy ❄️ πŸ’•
