Each month seems to be going by so quickly! On to my September favorites!
Book of the Month
I really enjoyed reading this book, even though it was shorter than books I normally read! It was a delightful collection of essays about reading. They were so relatable! I wrote a full review here.
Sam seems to be entering the teething phase, so when we have reading time, most of the books end up in his mouth. On a curious whim, I searched for chew-proof books, and this came up. So, I bought one, and I love it! They are five bucks and really are rip and chew proof. You can check them out here.
Beauty and Fashion
When I was pregnant, my skin would get super dry, but I wanted a moisturizer that would be safe for me and the baby (and with my anxiety, this was almost an obsessive search). This is what was recommended, and I’ve continued using it all year. It isn’t greasy and makes my skin feel great. If I don’t put it on, especially on drier days, I can feel my skin dry out and tighten. As we approach winter, this is definitely a good buy. You can check it out here.
There haven’t been a lot of shows that I’ve wanted to watch lately. Even some of the shows that are coming back that I’ve enjoyed in the past. Having a baby is one good measuring stick for priorities and interests (although it’s not the only one, it’s been a good one for me). So, when I look forward to each episode of Manifest every week, it says something.
The premise is that a plane disappears for five years but the passengers didn’t age. In fact, from their experience, it was just a simple flight. So there is the grief of losing five years, people on the ground moving on, and all that. And then on top of that, there is a supernatural element as the people on the plane start developing these insight powers, like knowing something is going to happen or where certain things are hidden. Plus, a lot of the premise is based on Romans 8:28, which is a neat little fact. Really enjoying it so far.

I started Manifest too!!! I had no idea it was based on Romans 8:28! So fascinating! Thanks for sharing 🙂
The mom quotes it at the very beginning of the first episode. You mostly see it in the first one, but there are definitely something miraculous in each episode as well.
